Filed under: TechNews — Tags: , , , , — The Insight @ 5:38 am

Google’s Gmail is going to launch “Voice and Video Chat“ feature . This feature will be provided inside the Gmail.

To make things happens you have to  download and install the voice and video plugin . This new feature has been designed using internet standards such as as XMPP, RTP, and H.264, It means there is scope for third party applications to interoperate with Gmail voice and video chat.

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.
