Gmessenger Concepts - Tabs

Primary Gmail Contact List - This is the primary display that shows all your Gmessenger contacts. You can change your status to a preset one, or create your own. Your screen name is fully customizable. Besides Instant Messaging people, you can also store contact information, view their profile, view their Blog profile and Orkut profile if they have one and send them email. You can also join them in a chat room or invite them to a chat room.

Blogger – Access your Mini-dashboard here. Quick Blog to any of your blogs and see recent updates to blogs.

Orkut – Which Orkut friends are online? You can see them in the top category (display much like that of Primary Gmail Contact List). View friends of friends that are online as well. Chat with people who are online and belong to your communities as well.

Google Search – Here you can view your search results in the Gmessenger window. Clicking them will open a new browser window. The Google Search at the bottom will always be there and when you click search, you will automatically be shown this tab.

Gchat – Here’s the list of chat rooms and categories. Choose a category, sub-category and start chatting. You can also create a temporary chat room. If you have an Orkut Community, start a Orkut Community Chat (it will stay active even if you are offline).

Language Tools – Need something translated? Type it here, select the language and see what it means.

Calculator – Hate math? Here’s your very own quick and easy calculator. Switch between scientific and basic displays. Browse our list of mathematic formulas and equations and if you still can’t find out what you need, do a Google Calculator search.

Favorite Link – This tabs for you. Put your favorite links here, organize them into groups or don’t, it’s up to you.

News – Recent headlines brought to you by Google News Search. Give us your zip code and receive Local News as well.


  • Someone suggested integrating a song player. That would be cool. It's not Google, but I don't see why it can't be.

  • I like the idea about Blogger and Orkut.

    I think they should also have find a contact option or just this button you click to speak to someone else who has clicked that button, randomly. I hope that made sense.

    Yeah. Offline messages are really important.

  • Hmmmm... That would get heavy and bloated. Download/Installation/Runtime wise.

    But, nice thought. Would love the thought.

  • Yes, We want a Gmessenger like that too. I am fully agree with your gmessenger concept. In addition there must be gmail allert, gmail login etc too.

  • The only thing that it is missing to be an ultimate messaging service would be to allow connection to MSN, YAhOO, AOL, IRC, ICQ, JAbber, etc... and allow the advanced services provided by each such as webcam, voicechat, file transfer etc... (Im a similar way as Trillian does!)

  • please dont mind my bad English

    Gmessenger must have graphics like yahoo messenger and connection with gmail it must have free sms services and free worlwide call services and radio it must have chat rooms and it must allow users to show theselves whether they are online or offline(stealth ability)and it must have voice mail it must also have column which suggests some activities For example, if John asks Judy what she fancies doing tonight the IM will use Google's Local feature to suggest a list of suitable activities back to them and it must also have the feature its ability to search for other people who are talking to your contacts, so if keywords match you can find people with similar interests and expand your own contact list.

    These are my suggestions

  • You should have gmail integration, and Gmail notifier built in as a plugin. Im also in total agreement on the idea that it should be like trillian, infact I would have no trouble with them buying trillian just like they did Picasa. By the way, speaking of Picasa, it would also need to be compatible with not only the normal Trillian PRO IM clients but also Google's own Picasa: Hello IM.

  • O yeah, AND it should have tabs, just like trillian, AND just like the new AOL AIM which is contrary to the normal AOL prejudice GOOD. Finally, its being updated, and they are going all out, by the way, beta testing is going on, its codename triton, so google it, lol. Anyway, when you said tabs, I thought thats what you meant, but no, you were talking about different tabs.
