Introducing our new chat room!

Hey Everyone,

With the release of Messages for Mac OS we've decided to try something new and start up a Toronto Apple User Group chat room. Messages works with a variety of chat services including iMessage and Google Talk. Unfortunately at this point iMessage does not support persistant chat rooms so we've decided to use Google Talk and the Party Chat service.

To join the chat room you will need:

1)A Google login. If you use GMail, Google + or any other Google services that require you to log in you can use your existing credentials to join the chat room.

You can create a Google login here

2)You will also need a chat client. I'd recommend Messages for iOS but Adium or Pidgin could work as well. Alternatively, you could use the web based clients provided with GMail or Google Talk.

You can download the Messages Beta here

3) Now all you need is to join the chatroom. To do so add [address removed] to your buddy list. You can now send messages to the chat room just like you would any other friend.

 

For more info on Google Talk

If you have any issues or questions feel free to message me at [address removed]

See you online!

Brendan
