From viewing videos on YouTube to screening family events, people love being able to watch something exactly as it happened. And as webcams have become popular, more and more of us are realizing that video is the next best thing to an in-person conversation. Today we’re introducing Gmail voice and video chat, which lets you have free voice and video conversations right from within Gmail.

Gmail voice and video chat will be rolled out globally over the next day or so for Macs and PCs. The first time you use this feature, you’ll be prompted to download and install a small plugin. To get started, visit or click on the “Options” menu in a Gmail chat window and choose “Add voice/video chat.”
