This is the free version of Gchat. It's not limited or anything because we love you. However, Gchat+ supports the app's development and servers, and signs you in for 24hrs after app launch, instead of 2hrs.

A beautiful, fast, privacy-conscious client for the Google Talk™ instant messaging service. Gchat supports cool features such as:

- Modern design that integrates with the rest of Windows Phone
- Receive IMs even if the app isn't running with push notifications
- Pin your friends to start and receive tile notifications for each one
- Completely encrypted conversations and support for Google Talk's "off the record" conversations
- New in 1.6: New icon, invisible status, bug fixes, and 24hrs logout timer for Gchat+ users

    Loading contacts and notifications some times don't work, but overall it does the job for me.

    Looks really nice but completely unusable. Don't receive any messages when the app isn't in the foreground or when the phone is locked and the messages which were missed never appear. I want to use it, when its actively in use its great but missing messages in a messaging app is no good
