Text chat systems are popular and widely used by a lot of users. However, there are sometimes redundant interactions between the users because of its less awareness. In this paper, we propose a text chat system called "GaChat", which simultaneously appends related information about the dialogue text between its users. First, proper nouns are extracted from the dialogue text by morphologic analysis. Then online images and articles related to the nouns are simultaneously displayed with the dialogue text. Such settlement of the ambiguity helps users to reduce redundant interactions like searching and asking the details of the phrase. This paper describes the prototype implementation and its first evaluation experiment.
