  • Description

    Empathy is a messaging program which supports text, voice, and video chat and file transfers over many different protocols. You can tell it about your accounts on all those services and do all your chatting within one application.

    Empathy uses Telepathy for protocol support and has a user interface based on Gossip. Empathy is the default chat client in current versions of GNOME, making it easier for other GNOME applications to integrate collaboration functionality using Telepathy.

    Key features include:

    - Multi-protocol: Google Talk (Jabber/XMPP), MSN, IRC, Salut, AIM, Facebook, Yahoo!, Gadu Gadu, Groupwise, ICQ and QQ. Supports all protocols supported by Pidgin.

    - File transfer for XMPP, and local networks.

    - Voice and video call using SIP, XMPP and Google Talk.
    Some IRC support.

    - Sharing and viewing location information.

    - Private and group chat (with smileys and spell checking).

    - Conversation logging.

    - Automatic away and extended away presence.

    - Automatic reconnection using Network Manager.
