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

    I've never successfully used it since it consistently gives me a "can't connect to server" error.

    It's super glitchy and does not alert when I receive messages. It sometimes also does not send messages..

    When it works it does the trick. Has problems renewing auth tokens and often reports an error accessing server, please try again later...
