How to Add Friends on GChat

Using Gmail not only allows you store an unlimited amount of email messages in your inbox, but also gives subscribers the opportunity to instant message with other Gmail users through Gchat. Gchat comes in handy when you need to get in touch with a person quickly and can't wait for a response in an email message. The system is easy to use, and it's just as easy to add your friends to the instant message contact list.
