Being able to chat with G+ friends on GTalk is great fun but after a while you’ll find that your privacy is lost. And top of all, your personal contacts and G+ contacts are messed up. I was very annoyed by this feature and thought of disabling it. After searching online for a while I found the way to stop this nonsense.
Follow the steps below to hide G+ contacts in Gtalk.
- Login to G+
- Click the small arrow next to Chat Pane as given in the image
- Select “Privacy Settings”
- Select Custom
- Deselect all your undesired circles
Now you can live in peace when u login to Gtalk via Gmail. Have fun guys.
You’re chatting with one of your friends and he sends you one of the interesting youtube videos. You’ll have to click the link or copy paste the link in a new window to see the youtube video. Now without all these hassle you can view the video just inside gtalk window as shown in the figure below.
This feature is already available in Yahoo messenger but now only they got it into gtalk, even though google owns Youtube.
Now video chat is available inside Gmail. This is a great feature and I’m sure no other web based email portal ever came up with such innovative technology.
You need to install a plugin for your browser then only you’ll be able to do this video chat inside Gmail.
As usual, Google is one step ahead of their competitors.
