    The new app announced today called Hangouts will do that by my understanding.

    Right, but you have to use Google+ right? Which I do not use and will not use. I just want the few people I use that google talk feature with in my email window to be able to reach me on the road, and vice versa, but it seems there's not really a direct app for that.

    IM+ allows you to used multiple instant messenger products in one place. Hopefully Messages in iOS 7 will allow this feature as it does in Mac OS X.

    iM+ is a regular app. There's also Talkatone which can do gchat as well as google voice.

    IMO Messenger will work with Google Talk as well, it's in the store.

    No. With the new update Google+ and the hangouts and chat are 2 totally different apps. Go to the App Store and download Hangouts. It does exactly what you described you wanted. I've been using it already.

    Hangout works pretty good. I just wish it only lists just my google talk friend like a regular instant messenger app.

    I did, it's requiring me to set up a Google+ profile, which I will not do. So I am deleting it.

    I will check out these other ones listed. The Hangouts one definitely requires Google+. It will not go past Google+ setup.

    I get to the screen that says "Enable your Circles" and it will not go past it unless I click Enable.

    Enable it then go to your Google account and disable that part of your account

    I just did it and then went back in and killed Google+ online again. Hopefully that doesn't happen if I use this app again.

    I hope it stays that way. Did it force you to put in your phone number? I got it to go around that, thankfully.

    It prompted me for it but I skipped it.

    It brings it up every time, ugh. I don't leave it logged in, in part for security in the event something happens where my phone goes rogue, so I have to go through this crap every time. They need to rid that Google+ and phone number crap and it might be a useable thing.

    Glad you mentioned Beejive. I use Beejive GT for my iPhone 4s. Just got the iPad Air yesterday and get a "no results" found when I search on Beejive or Beejive GT. Is there another version of Beejive I should use with iPad Air?

    You could try "Chat Browser"
    It works with Gchat, doesn't require Hangouts and is pretty unique. It combines a web browser with the chat client, so it's much more like using gchat on a laptop.
