Flamingo overview

Flamingo is a beautiful, native instant messaging client for OS X that supports Hangouts/Gtalk and XMPP.

Important: As of April 30, 2015, Flamingo will no longer work with Facebook chat. This is due to Facebook shutting down their XMPP API. Read more about the change here: http://blog.flamingo.im/post/115085201650/facebook-shutting-down-xmpp-access-on-april-30th

Highlights
  • All-in-One design. Buddies, conversations, and chats in a single window.
  • Multiple, detachable chats in a single window.
  • Inline previews for images, videos, and tweets. Supports CloudApp, Droplr, Instagram, and YouTube.
  • File transfer via direct connection (compatible with Messages, Adium, and other clients), CloudApp, and Droplr.
  • Reply to messages right from the notification bubble in OS X 10.9.
  • Full conversation history browser with fast message search and many filtering options.

Note: Due to service limitations, Flamingo does not support group, video, and audio chats in Hangouts/Gtalk, and MUC (Multi User Chat) for XMPP is not supported.

Essentially useless. Cannot sync past conversations. No group chats. Google and Facebook APIs forbid the above. This is essentially a prettier version of Apple's Messages, without the iMessage functionality.
