Trillian messenger client on its way to Android

Trillian, which we have distant memories of using on PC back when we used to talk to people, is coming to Android. A beta version of the app, which combines MSN, Facebook, Google and many more forms of messaging client into one app, should be here within weeks.

Here’s the official feature list, from the makers:

Trillian for Android will include all the fantastic features of Trillian you are familiar with, such as:

Connect to Facebook Chat, Windows Live, Yahoo!, AIM, ICQ, Google Talk, Jabber/XMPP and MySpaceIM

Synchronize your contacts, avatars, status, accounts and more with your Trillian-enabled desktop or mobile apps

Get notified easily with Android notification system integration

Contact list sorting, grouping, metacontacts support, privacy settings and various ways to organize

Set status, avatar and display name quickly in one simple screen

Tabbed chat windows with bubble view, photo transfer, buzz and emoticon support

Support for Android phones as far back as version 1.6 – works with your good old T-Mobile G1 or the newest HTC Evo 4G or Motorola Droid!

We took special care and respect to design and build the user interface to smoothly integrate with Android – this is not just a clone from the iPhone!

The first beta release is only a few weeks away. Stay tuned!

There are a fair few alternate apps out there offering the same thing already, but we suspect the Trillian name will make this a rather popular tool. And that tabbed chat window looks rather nice. Link via Android Guys.

    without push all these apps are huge battery hogs, wish google ran their own jabber transport.
    you can add many IMs like msn, icq, yahoo and have them pushed to your gtalk account, but it can be buggy getting your contacts to appear and it means trusting a 3rd party with you IM login/pass.

    but having said all that i’m connected to MSN and yahoo 24/7 and my battery doesn’t die in a few hours like the other apps are prone to do.

    currently using hot-chilli.net as my jabber transport.

    All developers can now use push in their apps (I think it’s fully enabled now and not just beta) so hopefully they will be implementing that.

    Great news! Love Trillian and I’m thrilled they have started taking Android as seriously as iOS. Can’t wait to get my hands on the Beta. Wish it had support for Skype (ala Trillian Astra for the PC) but hopefully it’ll show up in future releases (even if paid as long as it’s done right and worth the money).

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…
