News update flashed on FaaDoOEngineers.Com‘s Facebook page three hours ago 'Google is experiencing problems with Gtalk, this could be a major upgrade, or Google is under attack. Let’s hope for the best :-O' Now it is confirmed.
Users are not able to see contacts or send messages. Even if you do see contacts, your message won’t get sent. In some cases, it does say that the contact did not receive your message.
At times, the typed message is not visible in the chat-box. Twitter is already abuzz with people wondering why GTalk is down. It doesn’t seem to working on Android devices either. Logging into the Talk app either fails or the contacts don’t appear at all.
Google’s App status page shows outage for Google Talk. Google has posted:
