Gmail adds voice and video chat functionality

imageYou can now use voice and video capabilities in your Gmail chat. From within Gmail, you can have an actual conversation with someone (seriously, out loud), or even chat face to face over video.

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • Download the Gmail voice and video chat plug-in, quit all open browser windows, and install the plug-in.
  • Sign in to Gmail.
  • In the Chat section of your Gmail, select the contact you want to call. If they have a camera icon next to their name, you can make a voice or video call to them; just click Video & more.

    Unfortunately there isn’t a way of using video chat with the google chat desktop client. Any idea how this can be done without going through gmail?

      There is no way to integrate video chat to gtalk. Actually, Google talk lacks important features like going Invisible, video chat and smileys.
