Gmail’s Multi-Call Feature

It’s always more fun talking to two buddies at the same time than talking to either individually. Google has added the same feature into its Gmail service to make the conversations more enjoyable.

It’s more fun to read email and place a call from the same interface rather than switching back from mail to make a call. With preliminary voice and video calls support, Gmail brought forth the facility of calling land line and mobile phones across USA and Canada last year. Google has now enhanced this facility by adding multi-call support, allowing users to switch between callers using resume and hold features, much akin to call waiting.

Google Chat Integrates AIM

Over the next couple days, Google is going to get just a bit more powerful. The search engine giant will be integrating full AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) support in Google Chat. You will no longer have to sign in AIM or an AIM client (such as Trillian) to talk to the few buddies you have, who refuse to make the switch off AIM.

Users will be able to add their best friends straight from the AIM account or by adding their buddies through the Google Talk list. To add an AIM screenname to Google Talk, users will have to type the AIM screenname followed by “@aol.com.”
