How to Detect invisible user in Gmail and gtalk Chat
Even though you are not addicted chatter but you have to chat with your family, colleges, friends and for professional reasons in case of bloggers . There are too many Chatting Messngers available around us including skype , Yahoo messenger, Rediff Bol, MSn messenger and Gmail-Gtalk. One can also use Mobile IM messenger .
All of you definitely have Gmail account and you might have used chat option that is available not only in Gmail but also in Gtalk and Orkut. Here I will discuss about a Bug in gmail that will enable us to detect invisible user in chatting. Some times while chat we need to be invisible, may be because of lack of time to chat or you want to avoid some one! In the same manner the person with whom you are chatting may also avoid you. But after reading this post he/she will no longer try to do so.
Login to your gmail account either from gmai.com or gtalk desktop software. You need to chat with that user for one time only (Its necessary) while chatting (in gmail/orkut) , one window will open as shown above. Click on “video&more” link at bottom of that window, You will see “Go off the record” at top just click on it. Now you are in off the record in google chatting as shown in above fig 3.Do not go for cancel as it will reset the option again. You can chat with him normally now but don’t tell him about your plan!
After the chat is finished (your friend is log off) may be on next occasion say after 1 hour , 1 day, 2 day or at any instance you can check whether your friend is really off-line or he is on-line but Invisible.
Type any message and press enter if the user is on line you will not get any message in return of those messages that simply means he is invisible to you but he is definitely on line. In other case if he is Off line you will get ” user did not receive your chat”.
