Most of you must be already using the latest version of Google Talk – yeah thats the one with the file transfer and voice mail facilities. If you dont already have it you can get it from their main site – Google Talk. Although i am madly in love with the IM application i have to say it has a long way to go.
Hey Google – we need emoticons and text formatting as quickly as possible. On the subject of rich text formatting, i just read in Wikipedia that Google was supposed to be working on rich text formatting on susequent version releases.
Heres the catch – did you know that rich text formatting is already available in Google Talk’s current versions? All you need to do is prefix and suffix your text with the ‘*’ character and presto the text will appear as bold in the screen and everyone gets to see it as bold too.To make text appear in italics -perfix and suffix text with ‘_’ character.
