The Chat feature in your UD Google Apps account allows you to send and receive instant messages with other people at UD as well as anyone outside of UD who also uses Google Chat.
Chat is available in your UDmail. Click the Chat icon at the lower left of your screen (looks like a cartoon conversation balloon).
Check out our Getting Started guide for general information about using Chat.

Google is open to feedback from its users about suggested enhancements to their services. Much of their development strategy is driven by user demand -- in essence, the more people who request a feature, the more likely Google is to develop the feature.
