If there’s one thing that bugs a Windows Phone fan like me, it’s the lack of support of instant messengers. Of course, this would change with the upcoming Mango release.
As of now, there is no official Windows Live Messenger client, although Messenger by Miyowa fills that gap with a limited experience. Also, there is now a way to talk to your Google Talk friends via a third party application – Jabber Talk.
Jabber Talk is an instant messaging application that helps you connect to any service running on Jabber protocol like Google Talk. The app is very fast, light, and easy to use and can run under locked screen so as not to sign you out. Your session can remain online after you close the app and you can continue your conversations on resume.
The app allows you to open as many conversations as you want in parallel and receive messages via Push Notifications when the application is inactive. The trial version has all the features as the full version, except it can be run for a limited number of times.
