  1 Comment          


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.

imageGoogle 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.
