Video and voice in gtalk via gmail

Yup. Video and voice are now integrated into gtalk in gmail - but not yet via the gtalk stand alone client. A Skype-killer I would think?

I remember going to the Science and Technology discovery centre (Scitech) 15 years ago and seeing an “amaaazing” and expensive device to allow video telephone calls - with a screen refresh rate of about 10 frames per minute.

As Cindi pointed out, all it needs now is screen and ap sharing functionality….and it’s still useful how you can do this in a window while working on a google doc together …. or anything else. Me? I want to see split screen conference calling so you can have three or four people video conferencing at once.

Do like.
