Turns out I'm wrong! XMPP still works, but GChat, as a client, is gone. Pidgin users can still connect, etc.

I can still talk to my contacts on Google's server who haven't "upgraded" to Hangouts, which is a bit surprising. Not going to count on it continuing to work though.

is it from another xmpp server or just connecting to your gtalk account with an xmpp client?


I believe I've read somewhere that the latter will still work (for a while?), but I can't find it anymore.


anyway, I've convinced at least some of the people I communicated with via gtalk to migrate to proper xmpp, which is a start.

This is from my XMPP server. I'm still working on getting my contacts to switch.
