Chat with all orkut friends without a Gmail ID...

Its a day to celebrate for all Orkut users who use orkut without a Gmail login id. As you know Google allows you to create a Google account through which you can use many Google products including orkut without signing up for a Gmail acount...

All users who had their orkut acounts linked to Gmail acounts allready had the advantage to chat with their friends inside orkut but the users who use orkut with non Gmail Google Accounts can from now on chat with all their friends inside Orkut with their non Gmail ID's...

A post on Google Talkabout blog explains how>>
 

Hi Orkut users! For those of you who didn't have Gmail enabled for your account or use a gmail.com user name, you may have found it odd that Google Talk was not available in Orkut for you. Well, now we are enabling chat for all Orkut accounts, without the Gmail requirement. Any Orkut user will be able to chat on the Google Talk network using their existing email address as their user name! We are in the process of turning it on for everybody, so if you don't see it yet then it's coming soon.

For added security, we require a simple email verification to use this new feature. Click here to learn how to verify your account.

Those of you who have been paying closer attention might have noticed that chat for non-Gmail accounts already works in the new version of iGoogle (available for some users, coming soon to everyone). The Talk server team has been working behind the scenes to make this possible. We've engineered a solution that allows you to chat using an email address that is not hosted at Google, while preserving our existing interoperability with 3rd party XMPP clients and server-to-server communication with other XMPP networks.

Talk in Gmail is great, and we are really excited about putting Talk in other fun and useful places. If you already have a Google account, you're all set.

All those users who want to shift to a single login for their email and orkut can just go to gmail.com and login with their non gmail orkut login ids and then u'll be given an option to create a  new gmail id which you can make your primary id's and can shift to a single unified solution.

@Asif, asif yeh feature tumhare mobile pe tumhe nhin mil payega.. chat sirf tum apne computer se jb orkut khologe to hi kar paoge. jb orkut kholo computer se to pehle check kar lena ki settings mein chat tab mein chatting on ki hai ya nahin. agar nhin ki hai to uss on kr lena. n uske baad jb bhi tum orkut khologe left side bottom mein tumhe online friends karke ek tab dikhega usko kholo n kisi bhi online fren se chat kar lo.

@ADITYA, you can not create an orkut account through your mobile unless you use some xtra smart fone on which u can do browsing just like pc.. u cant create account through mobile site but only from main site.. what you can do is create it on a pc and can dn operate the most important features through your mobile.
