Android : Google Talk - Enlarge Contact Photo?

Aug 11, 2010

I'm a new Android user coming from years of BlackBerry use. I have the Droid X and was wondering, when using Google Talk, is there a way to enlarge the photo that my friends/Talk contacts use? Also, is there a way to have their selected photos replace the existing photo I have for them in my Contacts?

Motorola Droid :: Google Talk - Contact Did Not Receive Your Chat

Dec 2, 2009

Is anybody else having a problem with google talk and receiving a "[somebody] did not receive your chat" message whenever you try to IM somebody? It happens both on my Droid and in the chat client in gmail. The reason I'm asking here is that it only seems to be affecting my buddy and me and we both have Droids. Our friends who don't have droids can talk to one-another, but any message to or from us have issues. Could be coincidence but I thought I'd ask.

Android :: Quick Contact Link For Talk / Chat Does Not Work

Nov 4, 2010

I have a relatively new EVO 4G, and I've noticed that for some reason trying to chat with a contact using Talk and Quick Contacts doesn't work. When I pop up the Quick Contact for a person who's online, I see a second dialer icon. When I press that, it gives me the option to use various chat methods, including Talk (and Skype). However, when I choose Talk, it asks me to "Complete action using" and gives me a huge list of things, but none of which are Talk.

Android : How Do I Load A Contact Photo?

Mar 4, 2010

I'm having trouble loading a photo for a contact in Android. I've googled for an answer, but so far have come up empty. Does anyone have an example of querying for a Contact, then loading the Photo?

So, given a contactUri which comes from an Activity result called using

startActivityForResult(new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK,ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.CONTENT_URI),PICK_CONTACT_REQUEST)

content://com.android.contacts/data/1557

The loadContact(..) works fine. However when I call the getPhoto(...) method, I get a null value for the photo InputStream. It is also confusing because the URI values are different. The contactPhotoUri evaluates to: See the comments inline in the code below. Code...

Android :: Is Google Talk Always On?

Jan 18, 2010

My boyfriend uses a BB and loves Blackberry Messenger. I'd like to be able to use Google Talk on my Hero and his BB in lieu of SMS for chatting with him while at work, so that I can turn my phone on Airplane mode with only wifi on to save my battery (signal is terrible in my office)My concern is that I'm not sure if Google Talk is always connected like his BBM seems to be. Anyone have any insight on this? I see that "Automatically Log In" is an option....but say for instance we don't chat for a few days and he decides to send me a message. Will it be pushed to my phone?

HTC Incredible :: Google Talk With Google Voice

May 12, 2010

I was wondering if anyone has been using Google Talk exclusively for SMS and ditched their texting w Verizon all together. I mainly ask as I am curious how reliable it is as a replacement for SMS. I'd love to cut my phone bill by $20 a month. My friend (5-6 months ago) said he was having issues w Gtalk in regards to some msgs not sending, or he never actually received them to his phone. He had issues with his N1 on Tmobile. Is anyone still experiencing similar problems? My SMS MUST function and be completely reliable as I use it constantly to communicate with my managers.

Android :: Retrieve Contact Photo Type

Is there any way to retrieve the data type of a contact's photo? (e.g. "image/png" or "image/jpeg"). Using the Contacts Provider I can read the photo byte array only. In this case can we get the image type from the image stream?

General :: Select Contact On Tablet - Initiate (dial) Call / Talk On Phone

Jun 6, 2013

The Situation or: what I'm looking for:

1. Nexus 7 with Google Contacts app
2. Non-android phone (Nokia N8 etc.) or really any dumb phone paired to Nexus 7 via bluetooth.
3. Select phone number from Contacts on Nexus 7 -> connected phone dials the number
4. Talk on phone.

As I have a very extensive and nicely organized list of contacts in my "People" app (Google Contacts) on the Nexus 7, I would just like to be able to select a number there and have the bluetooth-connected dumb phone place the call, so I just need to pick up the phone and talk, not dial the number manually on the phone.

Right now, when I select a number in the Contacts app on the Nexus 7, Skype - of all things - starts and wants to dial that number apparently. Instead of Skype, I want the number to be sent to the connected bluetooth phone. Surely that HAS to be possible somehow?

Even though this should only require a simple ATD command to be sent out via bluetooth and it's a functionality that every automobile bluetooth setup can do (dial from the steering wheel etc. -> connected phone places the call), I couldn't find one single, small app that does that.

In the PC world, this is sometimes known as CTI (computer telephony integration), basically you dial a number on your Windows PC (e.g. using on-board "dialer.exe" or using Outlook, and your phone places the call). So now I'm basically looking for a simple, one-way TTI (tablet telephone integration).

I did find Tablet Talk, which looks very nice, but this one needs a client software to be installed on the phone, which therefore has to be Android, so it's unusable for my case. I'm pretty much looking for a universal solution here, i.e. Android tablet to any dumb or smart bluetooth-enabled phone (or even another android for that matter), which, given that bluetooth is a universally specified protocol, shouldn't be much of a problem, in my limited understanding.

From my point of view, to problems or "routines" would have to be solved/written in an app that does this:

1.) Get the Google Contacts app ("People") on the android tablet to send numbers via bluetooth or to our "middleware app" (to be named) instead of sending those numbers to the Skype app (which might just be a quirky configuration on my Nexus 7, but it illustrates the use case).
2.) ATD command to phone via bluetooth, sent from the tablet

Android :: Not Able To Sign Out Of Google Talk?

Jun 15, 2010

why I'm not able to sign out of Google Talk? I have 2 Gmail accounts and want to switch over to my other one. I unchecked the automatic sign in box in the settings and forced closed and reopened the program again. When I open it, it automatically signs me into one account. It's extremely annoying. I hope I don't have to do a full reset of the phone because I already have so much stuff on it already, including a lot of personal data. This is something that I just can't get by because I need to start using G Talk now.

Android :: Can Send SMS Via Google Talk?

May 18, 2010

I like chatting within Google Talk, but the thing that is missing from the Android Application is your SMS contacts. I added a few of my family members to my chat as SMS (just their phone numbers), and I can chat with them via chat for me, and SMS for them in any browser. Is it possible to send SMS via Google Talk on Android? I assume it's possible because it's possible on a PC, but why hasn't Google added the support? I guess the carriers wouldn't like it much, but that shouldn't stop Google.

Android : Google Talk Won't Start

Sep 28, 2010

I've been having problems with Google Talk on my Desire for 2 days now - I can't start it up. Whenever I click the icon, it shows a black screen for about 1/10 of a second, then goes right back to the home screen. I tried force stopping the app, clearing the cache and the data and restarting my phone and checked to see if there was something wrong with my data connection, but nothing worked.

Protocol For Google Talk On Android?

Nov 1, 2011

which protocol Google Talk on Android uses? I know that for the Talk application on Gmail uses the Jabber/XMPP protocol. I need to know what protocol (or if it's the same protocol) that's the protocol being used on port 5228.

The reason being, my organization will open the port to the Android sync and push services but only for that specific protocol (for security purposes obviously).

My application needs to import some photos from Gallery. Indeed, the application groups several persons. I want to attach a photo picked from Gallery to each person.

Android :: Switching Accounts In Google Talk?

Oct 20, 2010

I did a search and found some old (4-11 months old) threads but I'm hoping there's been some updates.I just decided to give Google Talk a whirl and it looks great, but the first account I added to my phone isn't the account I primarily use (which has the majority of my contacts). Is there a way to switch accounts in Google Talk so I have all the contacts from my main account?If not (that'd be something they need to address in a GTalk update) is there an app that will allow me to use the other?

Android :: Photo URI Of Contact Image - Using With Simple Cursor Adapter

Apr 8, 2010

I want to write a short app for getting some info from contacts, the first list screen I have should display the user Image (or an Image from resources if no such image exists) an the user display name. The problem is I don't seem to find a query that will provide me with the display name and a user id And the image URI in the same query. Moreover I'm aware of the fact that if the user has no image and the URI is empty or null i will most likely to get an exception while the adapter calls setViewImage(). Is there a simple way around it or should I override the setViewImage() or bindView() methods?

Also about the query, any chance I can make a single query for contact URI, _ID, contact_id and display name? my current queries: To get the contacts:
private Cursor getContacts() { Uri uri = ContactsContract.Data.CONTENT_URI;
String[] projection = new String[] ContactsContract.Data._ID,ContactsContract.Data.CONTACT_ID,
ContactsContract.Data.DISPLAY_NAME };
String selection = ContactsContract.Data.MIMETYPE + " = ?";
String[] selectionArgs = {ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.StructuredPostal.CONTENT_ITEM_TYPE};
String sortOrder = ContactsContract.Contacts.DISPLAY_NAME + " ASC";
return managedQuery(uri, projection, selection, selectionArgs, sortOrder); }

If I have a contact id and want the image:
int _id = m_cursor.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.Contacts._ID);
//try to retrieve the photo, if exists.
Uri photoUri = ContentUris.withAppendedId(ContactsContract.Contacts.CONTENT_URI,
m_cursor.getLong(_id)); InputStream is = ContactsContract.Contacts.openContactPhotoInputStream(m_context.getContentResolver(), photoUri);
Here I get from a cursor with _ID column the id and then creating the uri, I know I can get a row number but I'm not familiar enough with contentProvider to know how to join tables to get it all in one query (if even possible).
