Google talk is, no doubt, one of the best IM client available as on today. It not only integrates various Google features beautifully but also, is a very light weight software.,
As every software has its positive and negative, Google talk has also some features where it lags from other IM client. Availability status is one of them.
Google doesn’t give you an option to set status as ‘Idle” in Gtalk. There could be several reasons that you’ll want to avoid your friends for sometime in Gtalk and setting status as busy doesn’t work always.
This is a much discussed featured across various communities. Google may have their own logic for this. But sometimes we want this feature at any cost. Here is the solutions:-
In a simple word, Galwaysidle is a software which helps you to set your status always idle in Google Talk. Install this software and you are ready to go.
Use Galwaysidle / Install Galwaysidle
Launch Gtalk and then double click on gidle.exe. That’s it. Now right click on Google talk icon in task bar. It will give you an option to go “Always Idle”. Select it.
Hurray! Your status has become ‘Idle’. And now, your contacts will not ping you, thinking that you are not in front of computer. When you want to back to normal mode, select “Normal Idle”.
Not sure the reason, but Galwaysidle website is down. I have uploaded the file at my server. You can download it from here.
Hope you would be able to download Galwaysidle. In case any issue, do let me know.
A word of caution
This software is neither affiliate with Google in any sense not Google approves to use this software. Use this software at your own risk. Personally I am using this for a while now and do not face any issue.
Do you also know any trick or other software, which can enhance the functionality of Google Talk. Please share your experience of using Galwaysidle.
