The end of Google Chat support?
« on: 08 06 2022, 08:11:26 »
Hi, since yesterday it's not possible to connect to Google Chat (previously Google Talk) service with jabber protocol.
I suppose it has something to do with fact, that Google is ending support for 3rd party apps just like it announced few weeks ago:

Code: [Select]
You're receiving this email because our records show you may have recently used a third-party app to connect to Google Talk.
As we announced in 2017, we are winding down Google Talk. On 2022-06-15, we will end our support for third-party apps (including Pidgin and Gajim).

It looks like they killed it one week earlier.
Until now I've been waiting patiently that somebody will bring this up and hopefully come with the solution.
But there is no word, so in the end it's me who is asking:
Is this really the end of support of Google Chat in Miranda NG?
Will somebody try to find the solution?
Or maybe there already is one and I'm blind to see it?
Thanks...

It's a pity then.
Pidgin has already found the workaround.
At first it requires getting the Google login cookie, but then it's working fine.
But for people who have been using Miranda for many many years, Pidgin is not so "pretty" at all.

Pidgin has already found the workaround.
This doesn't look like a workaround, but a completely new protocol implementation.

There is no need for a new protocol for Gtalk / Jabber. To reuse your accounts, just set up two-step authentication in the security settings of your Google Account.
After activating it, generate an App Password for this account.
You will receive a 16-character password - use IT in Miranda's settings and that's it!

More information on how to do all this - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J4CtP1MBtOE

I wish success to all!  :DRINK:

p.s. I use PCLinuxOS at home, this works with Pigdin too!

Thanks from me too.  ;)

Without gtalk I should have to retire Miranda, as no other protocol I use is supported. Ok, except ICQ, but I haven't any online contact anymore. Gtalk  is the only protocol I actively use, even if with a lot of limitations, especially when the counterpart uses the new google chat.
I hope in a future basic support for Telegram (it is not matter of choice, it is the only one, except whatsapp, that the people I know use), but I can understand the lack of available time for developers.

Don't know, review and check your settings.

Which password did you generate, the app or the device password?
