Managing the iChat Service

iChat allows users to collaborate in real time. iChat users can use the following features to quickly share information without the delay associated with email messages and wiki posts:

• Exchange text messages instantly.

• Send files to each other.

• Set up an instant audio conference (using the microphone built into many Macs or an external unit).

• Initiate a face-to-face video conference using video cameras (including the iSight or FaceTime camera built into many Macs).

• Allow another iChat user to take control of their Mac (using screen sharing).

• Use iChat Theater to share many kinds of documents, including text files, PDFs, photos, QuickTime movies, Keynote slide shows, and iPhoto albums.
