What Video and Voice MeanVideo and voice features bring a whole new element to online communication. We have long had IM to exchange quick messages, but being able to use video makes the experience much more human. Google's implementation of Google IM and video provides a seamless way of being able to add video to a conversation on-the-fly.Once engaged in a video call, text is a good way to augment the conversation, say, when you want to swap links or product names.
Getting StartedTo get going with a voice/video conversation in Google Talk, start by installing the plug-in. Please note that, at this point, the new feature will only work on Windows PC's running Windows XP or Vista, and Macs running OS X 10.4 or newer. Luckily, a wide array of browsers is supported including Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari.Also, Google Talk with Video and Voice only works while using the Google Talk functionality inside Gmail. The downloadable Windows Google Talk client and Google Desktop sidebar widget products do not support video chat at this time. And finally, connecting to Google Talk with your favorite Jabber IM client will not be able to utilize video and voice either.
