Google Talk GuruMany of you who read this site on a daily basis also know what it is like to receive very basic questions from friends and family via IM. All those questions can often be answered with a quick Google search.

Questions such as, how much is $100 US in British pounds? Or what is the weather at home? Or what is the definition of a certain word.

How cool would it be if you can tell your friends and family a new IM buddy to add and ask those questions to? Aardvark? Nah, how about Google Talk Guru.

Just add guru@googlelabs.com to your Google Talk buddy list and ask him/her away.

It may know the weather, but not the time.

In any event, the questions it can answer include:

  • Sport scores
  • Weather
  • Calculations
  • Currency Conversion
  • Definitions
  • Translations
  • Web results

I believe this was first spotted by WebSonic.nl.

Sort of useful post; for those who want to get information from the other countries. Many are using an online call to communicate, because for them this is less in money. But VoIP can also be useful; VoIP is giving away free call rates to some other countries. That is why many are also using VoIP.
