Google Talk Adds Voicemail And File Transfer

As of the end of July (sorry it's late - been busy with hols and house decorating!), Google Talk now has:
  • much requested File Transfer, including directories (with sub-directories too).
  • Voicemail - if you're not around, the voicemail is sent to your Gmail account with the VM as an attachment.
  • Music Status - displays what music you're listening too. Supported Players are: iTunes
    Windows Media Player, Winamp, Yahoo Music Engine. More interesting is that the top songs this week are displayed here. This play list doesn't match the charts - conclusions anyone??
