How to use Google Talk as a feed reader with real time RSS feed updates
Google Talk already has many bots that can help you simplify your work. Well in this article we will tell you about yet another chat bot that simply turns your Google Talk into a Feed Reader with real time RSS feed updates - i.e. the moment a feed is published you will be notified about it via a message from the bot.
All you need to convert your Google Talk into a real time RSS feed reader is add the bot: [email protected] to your Google Talk friend list. Now, in order to subscribe to a feed you can send this as a chat to PuSH Bot: /subscribe http://blog/feed.
For eg. to subscribe to Digitizor's feed all you need to do is send /subscribe http://feeds.feedburner.com/digitizor to pus-bot and you will get a notification that you have been added. PuSH bot is basically an app hosted at Google Appspot.
Here are some more options that you can use with PuSH bot to manage your subscriptions and add or remove more subscriptions:
Subscribe to a new feed: /subscribe URL
Show current subscriptions: /list-subscriptions
Unsubscribe from one particular feed: /unsubscribe URL
Unsubscribe from all feeds: /unsubscribe-all
