    Is Google talk on the droid worth it?
    How do you use it?

    It is just another instant messaging program.....nothing more....

    I mean it is handy since EVERYONE here has it and has a google account...so you can IM anyone as long as you get their gmail address

    It is "worth it" to me. A lot of my friends have gtalk.

    You can use it by running the app, then select the friend you wish to message and send them a message. :icon_ banana:

    Occasionally I use it. The first time I even realized it existed someone sent me a message and I didn't even know what program it was coming from and couldn't find it to message them back (I had already closed it). But it's decent for GMail users.

    I try to use it every chance I get but all my friends are still hanging on to their aim :(
    It is real smooth from what I noticed.

    Once Gtalk integrates AIM into it fully (it does already in gmail), I ll ditch the 3rd party apps (just got the official aim app with facebook chat)

    I use it for a few friends that have Android phones. I wish more people used it.

    It's impossible for us to tell you if it's worth it to you. Try it out.

    Yes, it's totally worth it. It's like text messaging with your friends but the only difference is that it's FREE. You are not charged for using Gtalk. :)

    My wife and I use it all the time to talk to each other, instead of GV, because it is instant.

    The lack of ability to see when someone is typing a message makes it useless for me...especially for long periods of time.
