Google to launch instant messenger?

Posted on Monday, August 15 2005 @ 10:00 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Slashdot writes about rumours Google may be the next for Google as they recently bought a company called Meetroduction, which is known for their instant messenger Meetro.
Technically speaking, Meetro is radius and proximity based software. Untechnically speaking, it finds like-minded people around you instantly. Wherever you are. So whether you’re in-town or out of town, Meetro gets you on the town with old friends or new acquaintances.

So, is it true? Is Google writing the check now? Well, after a chat with Paul Bragiel, CEO of Meetroduction, the word is not right now. He called the whole story “rumors.” These rumors have boosted the number of user to Meetro, but have never been conformed.
