    PBUY friend,

    There is no need to talk about wonderfulness because it already seems clearly.

    Hope you get in future the better and better and then better 😛 and finally better than what’s supposed to.
    it’s so nice project.

    GTalk Client desktop and GTalk Android Client, both set the priority to 24. Do you think that it is possible to set the priority for the Android GTalk to be always inferior to the GTalk desktop app, in a way similar to what you have done??

    I tried to set the message using this utility but nothing happens on clicking ‘Set Values & Start’ button.

    I logged in successfully and it shows the status as connected on login button click.
    Can anybody please help and provide the inputs…??

    I have a proxy set in google talk, have you considered improving this to allow a proxy to be used?

    I would like to use this to set my status message while I am in the office. So I don’t need an update interval, I would just like to set it to clear my at office message at say 17.30.

    Aslam o Alaykum Diab!

    Well as you mentioned in the post, I tried this code. But it’s not updating GTalk status nor it giving any exception. Run perfect.

    XMPPConnection connection = new XMPPConnection(""); //Server is for Google Talk.
    connection.login("", "mypassword"); //Username and password.

    Presence p = new Presence(Presence.Type.available);
    p.setStatus("MY STATUS");
    p.setPriority(24); //Highest priority in Google Talk
    p.setMode(Presence.Mode.available); //This is one of XMPP modes (Available, Chat, DND, Away, XA).

    Please help what should I do to just programmaticaly update GTalk status.

    Thanks in advance.

    I’ve created something that changes all statuses of all clients (Android, GMail, …)
    Perhaps you could update your post with some ideas from my code :
