Go to the "Online Accounts" dialog; the menu with your name at the top
right of the screen, select "Online Accounts". Alternatively, go to
System Settings (Windows key, type "settings", it should appear), and
select "Online Accounts". Click on the "+" button to add an account,
select Google (right now the only available, I believe), click "Add",
and a kinda-browser form will appear, where you should enter your
Google mail, and your password. You cick "sign", and Google will
notify you that GNOME is trying to access your accounts. You click
"grant access", and then select which Google services you want to
handle with GNOME (mail, calendar, chat, etc.) Then in the menu with
your name at the top right of the screen, select "Available".
Afterwards you open Empathy (Windows key, type "empathy; it should
appear), and it should connect you to your Google chat account.
