How can I open Google Talk on my Samsung Galaxy S3?

Every once I'll receive a message via Google Talk, and the Talk icon will pop up in the notification bar, and I can access it that way. But I cannot seem to open Talk on my own; I don't have an icon for it in my list of apps. If for some reason I back out of the app in the middle of a conversation, I have no way of getting back to it unless my friend messages me again or it's still open in my 'recent applications' list.
In searching for an answer I've come across references to the "native Google Talk app" but I'm absolutely dumbfounded as to how to access it. Is it built in to something else? I've never downloaded it from Google Play, and when I search for it there, it doesn't even come up in the results.
If it matters, my carrier is T-Mobile and I'm running Android version 4.0.4
What am I missing?
