We were surprised to find that after creating a FireTalkNew account and logging in, Welcome Room chat session opened up with music playing in the background. A very lively group chat was under way, commenting on the music that was playing. The music was streamed over the microphone into the chat room.

How to exchange messages and run chat rooms with FireTalkNew instant messaging client
Assuming that you’ve registered and logged in, you should see an empty contact list, again very similar to a lot of other instant messaging clients.
Two main groups are available, offline and online. To access chat rooms, you need to click on All Rooms button which you see there, and from the window that comes up select a chat room that you would like to join.
To create a chat room, from the main window click Actions >> Create Chat Room. There’s options for directly opening up existing rooms, if you know their names. Chat room window can be seen on the second image from above. Very similarly to what the one on one chat room window looks like. System tray icon is of course available.
