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.
