    Is there a way to see when the other person is process of typing?! (like you can when you use it on gmail) I am sick of "stepping" all over the people I am chatting with.

    Just a simple "such and such is typing..." would suffice.

    not that I know of. Cool concept though, but I'm not sure if it would work on a smartphone.

    The BB chat feature told you when the other person was typing, received the message and also when they read it.

    Yes on Chat. BBM is the best Chat there is unfortunately.

    Hopefully Google can update Gtalk to incorporate some of the features BBM has such as Groups

    Hi MSN tells you when someone's typing as well.

    Chat apps are constantly pinging the system in order to provide you with responses as quickly as possible, so it stands to reason that it could also read if someone is typing.

    Wow! Had no idea. It seems like a such a no brainer feature that google would be on top of it.

    This is something that I was hoping they would update as well. I am a former BB user and BBM user and lets just say, BBM is without a doubt the best mobile IM there is. Anyone have any ideas on how we can submit to Google some enhancement requests????

    I know that gTalk does tell you when someone is typing if you are using it on a computer. I really have not paid attention to it on my Droid. However, I do know that Yahoo does tell you when someone is typing if you are using it on your Droid.

    +1, BBM is the best. It also tells you when the message was delivered and when it was read. I hope in time GT will have similar features.

    BBM is the ONLY thing I miss from my BB.
