Google’s engineering department is pretty busy. They are releasing a tons of new services, incremental updates and features every week. The newest feature, called “Chatback Widget“,Â is an extension for Google Talk.
If you are a Gmail and/or Gtalk User, you can now integrate a widget on any external website, that allows visitors to start a chat session with you – directly from the website.Â The visitors do not need any extra application nor a Google account. This means ANY! website visitor can have chat with you. Another advantage is, that there is no need to run Google Talk. Having Gmail open in the browser is sufficient. A pop-up message will inform you that someone has started a chat session. I have added the Chatback Widget on this blog, please scroll down to the bottom of the page and see if i’m available for a chat session.
