Anybody Get Google Talk Group Chat To Work On BlackBerry?

GtalkgroupchatI have been waiting for Google to introduce a group chat feature for ages and they have finally done so. The only problem is that the function is just not available on the BlackBerry client. (At least as far as I have seen) So I pose the question:

Q: Has anybody managed to get group chat to work in the native BlackBerry Google Talk client?

I have version 2.0.38 and I do not see the option even though it does show up in Gmail. It would be a shame if this was another feature excluded from the BlackBerry client. Hopefully this feature will be added in the near future. You can see the original announcement (Nov 28th)on the Gmail blog here.

  1. I don’t think this is so much a blackberry thing as it is a “Gmail only” thing.

    Group chat isn’t available in the Google Talk client either. Nor is it in the Google Apps email client.

    Bummer, eh?

  2. Chris,
    I tend to agree. They also just announced integration with AIM in Gmail so you can sign into AIM from Gmail. Hopefully some of these features will show up on a BlackBerry client near you :)
