@Franki
An App password.
Unfortunately, since this morning (about one hour ago), the protocol doesn't connect anymore. I tried to generate a nwe password without having success.
Looking at your experiences, probably it is not a temporary issue. Anyway, let's wait for some evolution of the situation.

GTalk finally died today for me too, even considering the fact that I've used the application password for Miranda
Seems that the story finally came to the end

I wonder how with such a simple procedure, you still have trouble running your accounts. Here's a screenshot, literally a minute ago - I'm sitting at my wife's computer, under Windows 10, and you can see my account alive and well. The client is QIP 2012 !!! and yet - it works great and I'm online. If you want, I'll take a picture of how this same account works in Pidgin under Linux. Either you have a problem with ISP, or you use VPN, I don't know what else it could be.

This was an expected change from Google; they sent out an email saying "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)."  I use third-party-app passwords and lost access around the 8th, and have tried more than once to generate and use a new one, with no success.


I'd say it's a fluke that some people still have access, rather than that people don't know how to create/use app passwords.

I don't think so.
I believe they are switching it off step by step, user by user.

So even though qsatis is making fun of us, he'll be next sooner or later.

By the way, Pidgin still works.
I don't like it, but it's better than having one separate browser window open with Google Chat.

Yep, I'm already sure I will loose my account soon or later. Sorry guys, it seems this was a temporary solution.
