Google Talk and Skype!

The Google Talk Blog announced that they will be adding Skype to the "Other Clients" compatible area :)

Google Talk's got a new gig. Google and eBay have signed an agreement around text-based advertising and "click-to-call" advertising, in which Google Talk and Skype will power voice calls between customers and merchants.

Just as exciting are our plans to explore interoperability between Google Talk and Skype, making it easier for our users to chat with one another. This is just another step in our commitment to interoperability via open, industry standards.

Just another chat client added :) BUT this is a big step towards being compatible with other chat clients, and not to mention Skype is from Yahoo, and Yahoo nad Google collaborating is a BIG deal.
