I used to be able to "chat" with my gmail friends from my Iphone...
Now, the entire thing has disappeared.
What happened?

Re-install the Google Talk app for iPhone. Make sure you are using the latest version.

This app will allow you to make free phone calls also.
Talkatone for Android and iDevices--Unlimited FREE calls, texts and picture sharing to GTalk friends, or any phone number in US/Canada:

Hey there, 

We are shutting down the mobile web app for Google Talk. For mobile users who want to continue using Google Talk, we recommend using the native Google Talk app on Android or any XMPP-compliant apps on iOS or other mobile platforms. We are working hard on some new and exciting updates to chat in the future, so keep an eye out!

Thanks for your understanding!
Katherine

So do these exciting new updates in the future mean we're going to get our mobile back because this other mobile platform I'm using is very annoying. I really like getting the chat through mobile gmail better, a lot better.

Yes I am also wondering about this like erica2000, the platform I use does not let me download the native google talk app. It is an android-powered B&N Nook but does not let me use the  android apps marketplace except their own B&N market place, which currently does not have any google associated apps. This is why I used the mobile browser gmail google talk. Will the mobile web app for google talk or any alternative ways be back?

@rw1130, my impression was that Android comes with Google Talk already installed, that's the meaning of "native google talk app" (to me).
Re: What happened to Google chat on my iphone? rw1130 5/20/12 7:44 AM
That's the problem, google and amazon are competitor companies of Barnes and Noble, which is why Barnes and Noble does not have any apps associated with Google. Barnes and Noble has just came out with apps, but they are created by Barnes and Noble and without the influence of competitor companies.
Re: What happened to Google chat on my iphone? wár17 § 5/20/12 8:56 AM
Barnes and Nobles and Amazon uses a portion of Android, not all.  They did not go through Google test for Android, so they are not using all of Android functions, including  Google Talk.
Re: What happened to Google chat on my iphone? rw1130 5/20/12 11:08 AM
I have read that somewhere, and after some exploring I eventually learned how to open up the parts of Android that Barnes and Nobles did not cover (rooting). I now have fixed the problem and converted my Nook Color into a fully functional Android Tablet which does come with the Talk app installed and allows me to buy apps from Google Play's market and not limited to B&N's. That has helped me, and I can talk to my friends again.

rw1130, you had to root the Nook to see Google Chat.  That's great! :)

Unfortunately for Sony Xperia Play owners, we are unable to use the native chat app on our phones after Update 2.3.4. Any chance on getting a fix for the google connection problem? Thanks for your information.

Are you serious? Then yes, hurry up and patch this. I do not like having to download a different APP for something I already have on my phone

Dear Google, I love you.
I love Chat on my PC.
I loved Chat on my iPhone
But....
I love my iPhone more than you
I will not give my iPhone up just to get Chat back
I'm sorry that you won't support competitive hw platforms - and you will be too in the end
I withdraw the first line above....

Screw you Google - you broke my heart
Re: What happened to Google chat on my iphone? KeithR 7/30/12 4:58 AM
@Trintragula423, I believe you should be able to connect to Google chat with iChat on your iPhone.
Re: What happened to Google chat on my iphone? johnwright 8/14/12 7:35 AM
There is no ichat for iphone. You are maybe thinking of facetime? As far as I know facetime is only to facetime. I'd love to hear differently. 
Re: What happened to Google chat on my iphone? KeithR 8/17/12 2:47 AM
@johnwright, any XMPP compliant chat app can be used (see the post by KatherineG on April 24).

Trintragula423 you post is a bit perplexing, since that is all Apple does--not support competitive platforms.  #Google4Life

ie....Grooveshark because it threatens iTunes
Re: What happened to Google chat on my iphone? behmer24 9/28/12 11:05 AM
Hi, I am using the app on my Android. I can send the messages to them and they receive them, but when they respond, I am not getting the response. It is showing in my history and will show if I log in on my computer tho. It just isn't coming through on my phone.
