There have been recent complaints from many GTalk users around the world who are experiencing problems related with Google’s (voice) chat service app. Like most of the affected users, we have also been facing issues with the app since morning ranging from unsuccessful logging attempts and also getting multiple errors ranging from inability to access our contacts list to failed attempts at sending messages. Even if you do see the contacts, your messages won’t get sent. In some cases, it does say that the contact did not receive your message.

Google have been working relentlessly since the last few hours on fixing this issue and have posted this message on their App status page

“We’re aware of a problem with Google Talk affecting a majority of users. The affected users are able to access Google Talk, but are seeing error messages and/or other unexpected behaviour. We will provide an update by 7/26/12 5:20 PM detailing when we expect to resolve the problem. Please note that this resolution time is an estimate and may change.”

Lets hope Google manages to resolve this issue at the earliest.
