    Features:

    1. Chat - Send instant messages from directly within Gmail. When you go to your inbox, you'll be online.

    2. Status - See when others are online and let them know when you're online, away, busy, tired, whatever.

    3. History - Chats can be just like emails. Save them, search for them--never lose important chats again.

    Since I have not chatted with anybody so I don't know how it works here! Will tell you about its working and features soon! But this type of chat has its own limitations than a full blown messenger!

    Let's wait for the revolution. Just visit http://mail.google.com/mail and start Chatting!

    It maybe because Google is taking time to enable it for all users!

    Yeah I have got it enabled in most of my accounts which I am not using frequently.

    But the account that I use frequently doesnt have it.


    One thing that I have noticed apart from the lot of features available is the emoticons. When we type the characters they animate and come to the real position which is done in a creative way.

    But I wanted to ask people using it .

    What they have done is made the contacts part of Gmail also show whether the user is Online via the dots. So can a user see me online and start a chat with me . I know this is does'nt sound possible but if you see the chat option under settings provided you will realise what I mean.

    Do reply who ever has tried.

    Cheers !!!
