GMail adds Group Chat and Smileys to Chat

by Karthik on November 29, 2007 · 4 comments

Ever since the Introduction of the new GMail, a lot of new features are being added to GMail on a regular basis. The latest one is the addition of Group Chat and Smileys into the Chat client that it is inbuilt into GMail. I have to say this is a cool new feature coming from the GMail team, because I can read through all my emails while having a group conversation will all my classmates for the next class outing!

gmail-chat-2Start a group chat by clicking on the Options link at the bottom of a conversation window. You’ll now see ‘Group Chat’ as a new option. Once that’s selected, just type in the name of the person you’d like to add to your current conversation. If you don’t see the group chat option yet, try signing out and logging back into your Gmail account.

The added bonus of this new feature, is the addition of Smileys into the GMail Chat. Until now, this feature was not directly accessible, but now they are available at the click of a button.

Its really nice to see GMail continuing to innovate in this highly competitive market.

Hi.. Shankar, Nice to see you around here.. I would like to see Google make this Group Chat global, so that all Jabber based clients like Pidgin can have access to Group Chat…
