    Google Talk experience (Xoom Wifi to Xoom Wifi)

    I have the good fortune to have other family members who own a Xoom as well. Today we played with Google talk!

    I have to say, I love this feature! It was fun to use, and pretty straight forward. I even used the rear camera to let my wife wave hello to my cousin

    Its pretty straight forward on its use, so we both were able to talk rather then fiddle with controls. The hardest part was exchanging google email accounts.

    The were some dropped words, and some video lag, but nothing major that we didnt expect to happen.

    Some questions for my Fellow Xoomers;

    One has anyone tried to go cross platform with google talk, such as AOL, Yahoo, or iPad? If possible how did you get it work, and how good was the connection?

    Two has anyone used the feature on the 3G Xoom, or used it via a tethered connection such the BT tether to your Droid X? What were the results?

    Finally I would love to hear from others about there experience with Google Talk.

    I do suggest that you try this out if you can! Its a LOT of fun to use

    I'd love to try it out, but I'm the only one I know with a Xoom.

    Try it out with someone with a webcam enabled laptop, or a p.c.

    I used it Xoom to laptop (on wifi) and it was ok. Used it Xoom to Xoom (wifi and 3g) again, it was ok. Video quality was decent but I experienced lag and dropped audio. Seems like Google should be trying to make this a showcase feature of the Xoom and improve it's performance.

    I've had several gTalk video chats between PC and Mac users. Not sure that it works with the other platforms (AOL, iPhone) but I am not authoritative on them.

    I've used it with a few of the staff here, besides a few dropped words it worked flawlessly

    I have used it to talk between a Xoom and iPad. There is an app on the iPad called vtok that needs to be installed though in order for it to work. I have to say I came away very unimpressed. I have not tried to talk with another xoom, so I'm not sure how experience is.

    I know a guy who has a Xoom, and we Googlled talked the first week the xoom was out. That was my first experience .. really cool! Since then I have vid chatted with my daughter in Chicago & my two grandsons ( was special 'cause the one little guy went through major emergency surgery last month. Was so special to see him in action) A very good friend recently bought a Xoom, so we vid chat too. Google Talk is very simple and fast.

    I don't have anyone to talk with that has a xoom. However I have used Xoom to PC and it works quite well.
