If you don’t want gmail chat to be activated when you sign in to your gmail account, then you can turn it off! 

Sometime last month, I lost chat in my Gmail! I emailed support but did not receive timely response. When I received the response, the support person asked some real duh questions!

Initially I thought my laptop was playing up. But no go at work or at home, on the workstations.

So, I did a bit of snooping around and at last I found a link at the bottom of the page. I had turned off chat and that was the reason, I could not sign into gmail chat from within gmail!


It’s that simple. On and off! Now I will never loose sleep over gmail chat!
