Now you can chat with all of your ICQ buddies and never leave Paltalk.
You don't even need ICQ to be installed on your machine!
note: you need a previously existing account with ICQ
Paltalk allows you to add ICQ buddies, and enter into private chats with
them, just as if they were logged into Paltalk. ICQ buddies will have the ICQ 'flower' icon displayed to the left
of their names on your 'pal list'.
