On this experiment, I using Google Apps account with personal domain name (eg: email@example.com). By default, Google Apps can communicate with Google Talk users from gmail.com & AIM account (after you registered to AIM). As the picture displayed above, you need to submit your email address to Windows Live first. Once you have registered to it, you will have the “passport” to communicate with MSN Live, Hotmail & Yahoo users. The last thing is, download Windows Live Messenger & try out to log on from it.
Now, you ready to chat with Yahoo messenger account. Try to send a chat request to one of your friend. The same picture below will display on your screen.
While on your friend screen will display a similar picture below:
On above picture, both of red circle explain that the conversation comes from non-Yahoo account (the first red circle will inform your email address, while the lower red circle displayed the Live logo and an online sign). But, what if your friend using Pidgin client? The pidgin will say that you’re offline. Pretty weird but it’s true.
Anyway, you still can make a chat with it. Moreover, if you use an universal IM client (eg: Pidgin or PSi), it will simplified your chat time since you only need to setup several IM services from your single registered email address. Have a nice try & please share your opinion below.
