All you need is a Web cam and Windows XP or higher to enjoy voice and video chat over Google’s Gmail. You can either make a voice or video (need a Web cam) call to friends. Merely click the phone icon to place a voice call or the video icon to place a video call. Gmail accounts are free and you can forward emails received to another account if you wish.
Check for a camera icon next to someone’s name on your chat list. If they do not have a camera next to their name, invite them to download the voice and video chat plug-in from the Video & more menu in a chat window. Even if your friend doesn’t have a video camera, you can still have a voice chat or a 1-way video chat.
Great for face to face business talks, especially with the winter weather approaching. Sign up for this free service at chat.
