Google Talk (GTalk) service restoredGoogle’s instant messaging service, popularly known as GTalk (Google Talk, or GChat) has been restored after suffering what seem like a massive worldwide service disruption lasting over four hours yesterday (Thursday 26th July 2012)
A big cheer went up across the office, staff mood index jumped 30 percentage points and productivity peaked for the rest of the day. (The backup trial of skype service was abandoned pretty quickly once Gtalk had restored service).
According to Google, the GTALK service resumed at 4.25 pm (BST). However, no news on the cause nor how widespread the impact.
