Gmail team added video and voice support to Gmail Chat. You need to download and install Gmail voice and video chat plug-in in order to use video and voice features.

Here's what you'll need to get started:

# Download the Gmail voice and video chat plug-in, quit all open browser windows, and install the plug-in.
# Sign in to Gmail.
# In the Chat section of your Gmail, select the contact you want to call. If they have a camera icon next to their name, you can make a voice or video call to them; just click Video & more.

Once you install the plugin, to start a video chat, just click on the "Video & more" menu at the bottom of your Gmail chat window, and choose "Start video chat."

Even if your friend doesn't have a video camera, you can still make a voice call or a 1-way video call.
