Trillian IM App Coming to Android

July 9, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

Since 2000, Trillian has been a powerful part of the effort to bring interoperability to IM.  Trillian lets you connect to multiple IM and social networks at the same time, managing contacts and real time status feeds efficiently. Trillian has just announced that they are coming to Android soon in Beta format.

Trillian will have this list of features:

  • Connect to Facebook Chat, Windows Live, Yahoo!, AIM, ICQ, Google Talk, Jabber/XMPP and MySpaceIM
  • Synchronize your contacts, avatars, status, accounts and more with your Trillian-enabled desktop or mobile apps
  • Get notified easily with Android notification system integration
  • Contact list sorting, grouping, metacontacts support, privacy settings and various ways to organize
  • Set status, avatar and display name quickly in one simple screen
  • Tabbed chat windows with bubble view, photo transfer, buzz and emoticon support
  • Support for Android phones as far back as version 1.6 – works with your good old T-Mobile G1 or the newest HTC Evo 4G or Motorola Droid!
  • We took special care and respect to design and build the user interface to smoothly integrate with Android – this is not just a clone from the iPhone!

Most Android phones come with Google Talk. Facebook Chat is an excellent feature and one that is lacking on the current Facebook for Android application. There are other applications on the market that do the same features. Is this announcement something that excites you?
