Google Talk seems to be one of Google’s abandoned step children. We have been begging for file transfers, group chats and many other features, but no major update comes around. Not being able to share to Google Talk on Android is one of Google’s most notorious faults, though, and that is what we are going to touch on right now.

Developer 360Dev has a very nifty solution for all of us looking to share directly to Google Talk – GTalkShare. It has been around for a while, but it really should have more downloads. I mean, this is Google’s official IM service, how can the guys at Mountain View not give us some sharing love?

GTalkShare does exactly what the title entails – it allows you to share to your Google Talk contacts straight from Android’s native sharing function. Upon opening the app, one is prompted to select which Google account to use. You must allow the app access to your Google Talk account, so no need to sign in or any of that.

After that, simply go to any app, hit the share button and tap on GTalkShare. Then select your recipient and share away! It’s really that simple. Sure, it doesn’t have the most beautiful UI or the smoothest experience, but it works as intended.

So there you go, guys. Head to the Google Play Store and download this app! Do you struggle with this lacking feature, as well? Do you have another solution? Let us know in the comments!
