Several of Research in Motion’s BlackBerry instant messaging clients, Google Talk, Windows Live Messenger, and Yahoo! Messenger, have been updated to v2.5.84 and are available in BlackBerry App World.
Google Talk For BlackBerry
The “Big G” has put out an update to Google Talk for BlackBerry which is now up to version 2.1.33.
As usual, Google doesn’t provide any type of change log or tell you what’s new in the new version. From what we can tell there are a few minor interface changes. Unfortunately, I didn’t take a good look at the old version before installed the new version so, other than telling you that the interface looks a little different, I can’t really tell you what the differences are.
Google Talk is a free Blackberry download and , thus far, I see no reason not to download the new version if you were using the old version. If you do decide to download it, which you can do OTA here, take a look at your current version first and see if you can tell what the changes are once you install 2.1.33.
Research in Motion has released updated clients for Google Talk and Yahoo! Messenger. I don’t use Yahoo! Messenger, however, the new Google Talk version 2.0.38 doesn’t seem to do anything different the the previous update, 2.0.35. My guess is that these new dot releases are just fixes to bugs reported in earlier versions.
Unfortunately we have to guess because RIM doesn’t include release notes or “whats new” documents with these apps.
Anywho, if you would like to get the latest versions of Googe Talk for BlackBerry or Yahoo! Messenger for BlackBerry, head on over to mobile.blackberry.com
