Pidgin is an IM program which lets you log in to multiple accounts on multiple IM networks simultaneously. This means that you can be chatting with friends on AIM, talking to a friend on Yahoo Messenger, and sitting in an IRC channel all at the same time.

Pidgin runs on Windows, Linux, and other UNIX operating systems. Looking for Pidgin for OS X? Try Adium!

Pidgin supports many features of the various IM networks, such as file transfer, away messages, and typing notification. It also goes beyond that and provides many unique features. A few popular features are Buddy Pounces, which give the ability to notify you, send a message, play a sound, or run a program when a specific buddy goes away, signs online, or returns from idle; and plugins, consisting of text replacement, a buddy ticker, extended message notification, iconify on away, spell checking, tabbed conversations, and more.

Supported IM networks:




Google Talk













Summary of Changes

*Mark did massive code cleanup in MSN

*Mark fixed a number of shortcomings in the MySpace IM protocol as well as doing code cleanup.

*We accepted a ton of patches.

*ICQ typing notifications should work for some third-party clients now.

*XMPP resources now default to the empty string, causing modern servers to assign us a resource via a bind. In the event of an ancient server, such as the one

*DreamHost runs, we will detect the lack of this capability and enforce the default "Home" resource if a user hasn't set a resource.

*XMPP resources can now include __HOSTNAME__ as a special token that will be replaced with the hostname of the machine being used. For example, if I run

*Pidgin on my MacBook and configure the resource on an XMPP account to be __HOSTNAME__, the resource sent to the server will be "macbook", since this is the hostname of my MacBook.

*Some long-outstanding patches have been applied for Gadu-Gadu, implementing IM images.

*Apply some patches for Zephyr, enabling autoreply when away to emulate zaway and some bugs with the 'use tzc' option.

*We no longer get certificate errors for rsi.hotmail.com when logging into MSN and retrieving offline messages.

*Many, many other things best read about in the ChangeLog, http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/ChangeLog
