Google has announced that a major objective of the Google Talk solution is interoperability. Google Talk uses Xmpp to provide real-time extensible messaging and presence events, including offline messaging and voice mailing. On January 17, 2006, Google enabled server-to-server communications, federating itself with any Xmpp server that supports the dialback protocol.

Instant messaging between the Google Talk servers and its customers uses an open protocol, Xmpp, enabling users of other Xmpp/jabber customers to communicate with Google Talk users. VoIP in Google Talk uses an older edition of what would later become the Jingle protocol. The technology used within the Google server network, however, is not publicly known.

The connection between the Google Talk client and the Google Talk server is encrypted, except when using the international edition of the client, Gmail's chat over Http, a federated network that doesn't support encryption, or when using a proxy like Imlogic.
