Sharing photos with multiple people in chat program
September 26, 2010 1:36 PM   Subscribe

I usually use Google Talk, and sometimes I drag my photos into the chat window, which allows the other person to view the photo. However, Gtalk doesn't allow multiple party chat, which is a pain because I sometimes want to show pictures to more than one person at the same time. Which chat programs allow you to drag-and-drop photos into the chat window while speaking with multiple people?

Oddly, the Google Talk interface in Gmail does allow multi-party chat.

yeah, Gtalk allows multi-party chat. not sure if it'll allow you to drag and drop photos.

Ah, yeah, spike is right. Sorry about that. I was thinking of the feature where if you drop a YouTube link into a gchat, it creates a mini video you can watch right in the chat interface. I just tried dragging-and-dropping a photo from my hard drive and it did not work.

I've used Yahoo chat effectively for this in the past.
