|Telepathy is a flexible, modular communications framework that enables real-time communication via pluggable protocol backends. Telepathy is a communications service that can be accessed by many applications ("clients") simultaneously.|
|This allows any application to access presence information, request a communications channel (potentially handled by another client), or collaborate contact-to-contact.|
|Telepathy provides protocol backends for most popular protocols including: Jabber/XMPP/Jingle, link-local XMPP, SIP, Yahoo/AIM and IRC via a unified D-Bus API.|
|It also provides convenience libraries for GLib, Qt4 and Python to simplify using the API from applications.|
|Telepathy exposes the available real-time communications capabilities of each protocol: presence, contact rosters, text chat, voice and video over IP, file transfer and Telepathy Tubes.|
|Telepathy is modular. Each backend and client runs in a separate process, allowing for much greater security and resilience.|
|Telepathy is suitable for embedded and desktop environments.|
