Yes folks it’s true. Google Talk now finally supports Offline Messaging (Official Blog Entry). Let’s just hope that the uber cool Google Chat emoticons are also ported into GTalk.
If you send somebody an Offline Message via Google Talk, the message will be received when they sign into Google Talk/Gmail. In Google Talk it appears as a normal message from a friend, whereas in Gmail it appears as a new Message.
OH yes there’s a catch. You only get this feature when you use Google Talk with a Gmail Account and that too with Save Chat History Enabled. Also if you were chatting off the record before your friend went offline, you’ll need to select Stop chatting off the record before sending offline messages.a href=”http://googletalk.blogspot.com/2006/11/offline-messages.html”
