AIM Fully Integrating With Gmail Chat For Single-Login Chat

Over the next few days, Google is going to be changing its AIM support to something a little more tightly integrated. No longer will you have to sign into AIM separately from Google; you just sign into Google Talk and you can chat with your AIM friends straight from that account — either by adding them to your Google Talk list (in the form of [email protected]) or by using the AIM to Gmail contacts importer, which should be available soon.It's still unclear as to how it all works; we don't know whether this changes anything for those if you using desktop IM clients, but once it rolls out we'll let you know more.

    AIM? lol

    It's got a status in america similar to that of MSN over here - it's lost the leader position to facebook, but there's still a hell of a userbase that aren't going anywhere just yet.

    Google: if you add msn, facebook chat and secondary-gmail-account support for chat then we might have a deal.

    Does anyone know how to add contacts onto their gmail chat account? I have no idea how. Please help!
