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.

Multi-service IM client Digsby has given its early adopters access to a much-requested feature: group chats.

To get in on the alpha-level testing, read the Digsby blog for instructions.
