If you’re a Google Talk holdout like me, you were probably bummed to find out that the Windows app started blocking new connections back in 2015.
However, after doing some digging, I found a hacked version of the Google Talk application called Talkonaut.
I can’t find much information about it, but after it warned me about it being discontinued in 2015, I knew that it was the real GTalk app.
It was made for this sketchy conversion service called GTalk2VOIP that still has its site up, but I highly doubt it still works. And while this service doesn’t seem to work anymore, Google Talk connections still do.
