It would be a huge advance in usability if Whonix had a pre-installed IM client. Gajim, though not perfect, is by far the best choice.

Notes on our wiki Dev/Gajim - Whonix

It seems that stream isolation is the only blocker to including it. We can discuss that here or on the forums (Should strict stream isolation by a requirement in Whonix's Default Application Policy?), but I’m thinking that “stream isolation as a requirement” keeps our hands clean in the event of a highly sophisticated attack, while letting our users fumble in in the dark (such as installing pidgin, or installing gajim but not configuring it) or giving up.
