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.
