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 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!
