    Default Gmail video chat enhancements

    GMail's video chat is huge for my family - we use it all the time to let the grandparents see our kids.

    Apparently they have introduced some enhancements, but you have to enable it manually:

    How does this compare with Skype and MSN?

    I've never used MSN. I like it better than Skype because of the simplicity. Most of my family members already had Google accounts, and many already used GMail. It's integrated into GMail's chat box, so it makes for very easy setup and use.

    I had found I couldn't get family members to use Skype. Too many constant upgrades and confusion with how it worked.

    Have you tried the Opera Unite version? I use it more and more these days after lots of problems on Skype. Good image quality and low lag.
