Google Talk (Instant Messaging)
Google Apps brings us Gmail, the world’s leading web-based email system, and Google Talk, a standards-based instant messaging platform connected with other instant messaging systems across the globe.
Web based Gmail lets you, from nearly any computer nearly anywhere in the world, send and receive mail, access your stored mail and contacts and search your information with nothing but a standard web browser. It even gives you a web widget for Google Talk that lets you communicate through instant messaging under the same circumstances.
Add to that a full directory of employee email addresses, over 25 GB of available email storage, voice and video chat capabilities and excellent mobile device support and you’re ready to communicate with everyone.
