Hide unwanted contacts/circles from Google Talk


Three days ago, Google Talks started showing many people in my chat lists who I haven’t even known. I got irritated to hide one by one. Because new people started to appear again in the list. This may be the effect of Google Plus. Usually I add unknown people to a separate circle . I never knew Google will sync all Google+ contact with GTalk  list ( yay!! )

To hide people from particular circles,

  • Go to Google+
  • Click Privacy Settings  in the chat area.
  • Change Choose who can chat with you :  from Your Circles to Custom.


  • Now choose the preferred circles with whom you want to chat.
