Google Chat no more?   no comments

Posted at 12:41 pm in blog

Over the past few years, we’ve utilised the Google Chat badge on our website. It’s always been handy for people to contact us – perhaps if they are at work and unable to speak on the phone. A useful little tool, relatively easy to implement and a nice feature to have.
It stopped working recently (or just repeated queries back at the user!) and it’s been quite tricky trying to figure out why. One person on a Google Group suggested that Google were no longer developing the badges, and they should be removed. We can’t find out if this is official and the page to generate the code still appears to be up. Go figure.

Anyway it’s all banjaxed, so we’ve shifted over to the Windows Live equivalent. Fingers crossed.
