Palringo to Stop Supporting 3rd Party IM ServicesApril 26, 2012 4 Comments
Palringo which is in public beta at the moment, has announced that they will no longer support 3rd party IM services like AIM and Gtalk.
Further in our move to focus on the features our users love – our community of groups – we have decided to pull support for 3rd party instant messaging services. We’ve noticed that the vast majority of you no longer use this feature and instead prefer to invite your existing friends to signup to Palringo, which is now easier than ever.
Again we appreciate that this might be sad news for some of you and we will endeavour to reply to any questions regarding this change.
Looks like they are going to concentrate on their own services and we wish them nothing but good luck. You can pick up the Beta on the marketplace for free right now as it still includes 3rd party services.
