Google video chat is one of the cool Google/Gmail things I don’t use, but I’m sure most of you aren’t too lazy to go out and get the required gear (watch the video) to get starting video chatting on your own! I’ve got a friend who video chats with his mom overseas (pretty sure he uses Skype, but its the the same idea), and I’ve got family in 2 states I could video chat with because they live far away.
Often when I tell people that I work on Google video chat, I hear stories about how they’ve used it to give a video tour of a new home to friends, introduce a baby to relatives, keep in touch with traveling loved ones… the list goes on. This got me thinking about how convenient— and sometimes even magical — the experience of video chatting is.
