How can I add my AIM contacts to Google Talk’s desktop client?

Alex March 28, 2010

I have given up on Gmail notifier because for some reason it just doesn’t work and I have tried all that I know how. Therefore I tried out the Google Talk desktop client, which has a built in Gmail notifier. I am liking this client, I just wish I could talk to my AIM buddies through it, like I could while checking my mail on

    Hi Alex,

    I am using Digsby which is a mutli-protocol instant messenger. It lets you chat with friends from pretty much all messengers (Yahoo, MSN, AIM GTalk etc etc) all from a single program.

    I just checked and it has email notification features as well. By the way it also lets you check and even reply to the emails without opening the browser.

    You can't add AIM contacts to the desktop GTalk client. You can only add them to GTalk on the Gmail interface. Stupid I know but that's just the way it is right now.
