Gmail Video Chat – One More Step to Controlling the Internet

November 11, 2008

Google is rollling out its version of video chat via its gmail chat server today. The service allows g-chat users to connect with other who have installed the free plugin. Gmail video chat works very similar to iChat, with a small camera icon situation next to user-names of those with web-cam enabled computers. Currently, Google is in the process of rolling their new feature out to all Gmail users, so if you do not see if its not available yet, no fear, its coming soon.

What affect will this have on other similar services like Skype and iChat?

To me it seems like Apple and Google seem to be colliding more and more with their technology.  I am looking forward to seeing even more competitiveness between these two companies.
