What is the most reliable connector from Yahoo Messenger & MSN Messenger to Google Talk?
September 23, 2010 5:48 AM   Subscribe

I have an Android phone and using Google talk to chat with my friends. I want to connect my Google talk to MSN Messenger and Yahoo. Do you know a good and reliable connector that I can use? I know there are other clients such as Ebuddy/Meebo, but I prefer Gtalk since it is very reliable and I don't want the battery life to suffer by using another app. I did some Google search, many instructions and lists are outdated.

Google Talk only connects to Google Chat which is a Jabber-based platform. MSN Messenger and Yahoo are different (non-compatible) instant messaging networks, so to do this, you'll have to give up Google talk and use ebuddy/meebo which are clients/apps that connect to multiple networks.

Meebo can connects to MSN + Yahoo and Google Chat.

As stated there's no way for Google Talk to use the MSN API, but unless you have rooted your phone I doubt you can stop Google Talk running if you use Meebo instead. With that being the case, having tried Ebuddy and Meebo and the likes, I've found MSN Talk to be the best way to do MSN on Android, and might be worth a look.

Response by poster: It is possible by using MSN to Jabber connector/gateway as stated on this page But the problem is, many connector services are not very reliable :-(
