Text, Audio, and Video Chats

After you create a Buddy List, you can select a buddy name in the list that's online, then start chatting. You can chat using text-based messaging, audio, or video, depending on the connection speed and the hardware available to both of you.

Text messaging may sound low-tech, but it has some advantages that make it a popular option. It's more private than talking aloud during an audio or video chat. Text messaging also lets you send files to others as you chat. You can include HTML web address links within a message. And you can chat with larger groups of people than you can with audio or video chats.
