If you’ve used Google Talk, then you might be a bit confused by the NEW integrated within Gmail Voice and Video chat feature. Google Talk ONLY worked with PC machines, by the way, so for me and those other Apple users, this feature wasn’t very useful. However, on November 11, 2008, Google came out with a neat little feature that easily allows you to chat with your contacts within the Gmail interface. All you need to do is install the voice and video plugin and get started.
This is from the Official Gmail blog:
Once you install the plugin, to start a video chat, just click on the “Video & more” menu at the bottom of your Gmail chat window, and choose “Start video chat.” You’ll have a few seconds to make sure you look presentable while it’s ringing, and then you’ll see and hear your friend live, right from within Gmail. You can click the “pop-out” iconto make the video larger, or click the fullscreen iconin the upper left-hand corner for a fully immersive experience.
Here’s a great YouTube video that explains and shows how this works. I’m wondering if you can chat with multiple users???
