Google Opens IM, VoIP Services

This is great news, I thought they were already pretty open regarding the technology they're using. But it seems Google has taken it up a notch and now allows anyone that supports XMPP to connect to their platform. It will be interesting to see how this impacts Googles popularity and that of the other big three players (Microsoft, Yahoo, Skype)

Google Inc. has opened it instant messaging and Internet telephony services to any company willing to support the XMPP protocol, a standard under the control of an open-source foundation. XMPP, or extensible messaging and presence protocol, is an XML-based protocol for passing instant messaging and presence information among servers. The protocol is under the Jabber Software Foundation.
