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

Google Babble out is also an application.

I would argue that Google Blab is equitable the coating battlefront close to the banner Jabber protocol.

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

Google Let the cat out of the bag did function XMPP but Hangouts doesn't. I'm not certain if they still bear 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. Spell 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 call back Pidgin is allay not a calculate substitute 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.
