Remember when we used to copy and then paste Arabic paragraphs while chatting on the internet? Those days are long gone.

Google just launched an inbuilt Gmail Chat application that fully supports instant messaging in Arabic. In addition to the introduction of chat, Arab users will see some other changes. Because Arabic language speakers may need to use Gmail in other language settings, Google has made it easier to switch between languages. For example, you can now reply in Arabic even when your thread starts in English and vise versa.
