Comments: Google's IM service with Trillian Pro


A quick guide on how to connect to talk.google.com using the Trillian Pro messenger and the Jabber plug-in for this messenger.

Read the rest of Google's IM service with Trillian Pro.


You may want to start with a link to where you can download that Jabber plugin. Cause my Trillian doesn't show any Jabber under plugins.

It doesn't seem like the voice chat are operational for google talk under trillian. Is there a way to make voice chat work under trillian?

Does the audio talk feature work in trillian pro?

The latest version of Trillian Pro comes with the Jabber plugin. You only have to enable it.

This is the Link you can find the jabber plugin on... Cerulean Studios, Jabber for 3.x

This really helped, I couldn't be bothered to figure out how to set it all up in trusty Trillian because I'm really lazy and ended up running Google Talk separately.

This saves me some more RAM and it wasn't that hard after all. Thanks!

So, why is it that Trillian basic works with msn, icq, irc, and aim for free, but when google comes out with a FREE messanger the trillian folks charge you to gain access to it? Violates the whole principle of trillian being the all in one client, and makes them look bad by only dealing with classic chat clients in their basic version.

Because someone has to pay for the R&D of the new apps and unlike Google, Trillian doesn't have the pockets to eat the cost. I don't mind paying $25 for an IM client that links all five of the other resource hogging apps I used to have to run!

I installed the Jabber plugin but it is not recognizing it.

It worked smooth... for those behind a firewall use the http address : mg-in-f125.google.com with port 80 instead of talk.google.com : 5222
