Google launches videochat

Google launched their voice and video applications on Gmail and Gtalk on 11 November, making the next best thing to actual in person face to face conversation easily available to everyone with a computer and a webcam. And it’s free!

Google promises it’s really quick and easy to sign up, so why not get Google live videochat right now?
Users can switch to a full screen view or pop out the chat window, and change the size and positioning of the window and even if you don’t have a webcam on your computer, you can still have voice conversations alongside your email and regular chat.

Gmail voice and video chat will be rolled out globally over the next day or so for Macs and PCs, and so far seems to have been very well received by the public.
