About GameStreet Talk
Free Voice Chat and Instant Messaging with GameStreet Talk™
GameStreet Talk™ is a free voice chat and instant messaging program similar toVentriloandTeamSpeak. Also called "GSTalk", the free client program installs minimally on your system and runs in the system tray and allows you to create unlimited personal voice channels. Guilds can also create their own private channels that only their members can use. On top of this is an instant messaging system similar toAOL Instant MessengerandWindows Live Messengerthat allows you to send instant messages to your friends.

Contacts and Instant Messaging
GameStreet Talk allows users to build a contact list from their friends on GameStreet, or any other member of the website. From this list you can send instant messages, and invite friends to join your voice channels. Once a member is in your contact list, his or her own voice channels become visible to you so you can join them if they have given you access.
Voice Conferencing for Members
Each member can create "Channels" for voice conferences. Each user has an unlimited number of channels they can create for any purpose. Each channel can be setup to allow any of your contact’s to use it, require a password, or you can selectively choose which contacts can use it. You can also browse your contact’s channels and use them as well, if that person have given you access to them.
**Each member can support up to 20 concurrent users across all his/her channels at any given time (Each member is given this 20 user limit across all of his/her personal channels). Member account upgrades can be purchased to support more concurrent users at one time.
Voice Conferencing For Guilds
Guilds who are registered on GameStreet can also create an unlimited number of guild-specific channels that only their members can use. Each channel can be setup by an admin or officer, and can be setup to allow all members to use, require a password, or be used by admins/officers only. Only members of the guild will be able to see these channels and use to them.
**Guilds can support up to 20 concurrent users across all guild channels at any given time. Guild account upgrades can be purchased to support more concurrent users at one time.
Voice Quality and Performance
Testing has shown a far superior voice quality toTeamSpeak, and is equivalent if not better quality thanVentrilo. Average usage of GS Talk requires a very minimal memory footprint (25-50mb), and uses about 600-15000 bytes per second of bandwidth when in a channel.
The Bottom Line
GameStreet Talk is completely free to use and does not require a server to host. All users connect to the central GS Talk server infrastructure and can communicate with any other member of GameStreet. The basic service is completely free, but upgrades are available to increase capacity for concurrent users for a member’s or guild’s channel space. GameStreet Talk is supported by ads shown unobtrusively in the client, but does not include any spyware or adware.
