Google Talk a.k.a. Gtalk is now gone. Last week at the Google i/o event, Google launched its unified messaging app called Hangouts. It is part of Google’s strategy in streamlining its overlapping products. Hangouts is capable of sending and receiving images and videos. It is now also the messaging app to handle video calls.

One of the cool features is the Hangouts On Air – think Ustream.
