Pidgin is Not an alternative. Google Talking is a Network/Protocol...Pidgin utilizes multiple networks/protocols but it does Not bear its own. So it is not the saame affair and frankincense is not an alternative.

Google Babble is also an application.

I would argue that Google Babble out is equitable the applications programme battlefront close to the criterion Jabber protocol.

but joshhsoj1902 Google Blab doesn't exercise fair the measure Jabbering protocol that is wherefore thither is a specific accounting entry in Pidgin to oeuvre with it instead than good victimization the XMPP option. However, I do empathise what you mean and it is a commodity point.

Google Blab out did function XMPP but Hangouts doesn't. I'm not certain if they still birth the XMPP gateway to the new, proprietorship mesh but yeah...

@tuuli85 I didn't call that they didn't habit XMPP, I declared that their carrying out of XMPP is not standard. While Google Hangouts doesn't manipulation XMPP as the briny communications protocol it is stillness employed for purpose in Pidgin.

I've actually changed my belief of this issue actually, I believe Pidgin is allay not a calculate alternative to Hangouts I'd be altogether amercement with claiming that it was for Google Talk. Hangouts though is 99% known for picture which Pidgin is not for that usage.
