To give it a try, just click Send a file… in the Actions menu while chatting with a friend. You can now use the chat feature to send photos, documents and other files directly to your contacts.

This feature is also compatible with the file transfer functionality in the Google Talk downloadable software, so you can share files directly from the web with folks who use the desktop version.

File transfer is available in orkut and iGoogle only for now. They are working on bringing it to Gmail as well.

Cheers!!
