Does Google have an iPhone app that supports Googel Talk \ Gmail chat?

Google says:

No need to download or install anything. Start chatting from your iPhone's browser at:

We have a guide on How to Ask that might assist you in explaining in more detail what you don't get. For me, that page has a "technical requirements" link as option 2 that clearly says you need a computer OS and not iOS to use talk. What makes you think that link is meant to work on iPhones with iOS? – bmike Mar 10 '13 at 20:36

Since this question was asked, Google released their Google Hangouts app which does exactly that.

FYI (for future readers): The Google talk application shared is not an official one from Google. – Dan Esparza May 17 '13 at 17:28
