Enjoy Higher Resolution Video and Bigger Video Chat Window in Gmail Video Chat

If you are using video chat in Gmail then here is a good news for you. Google has introduced a new Labs feature that allows you to preview new video chat features before they are turned on for everyone. The new labs feature “Video Chat Enhancements” – gives you a higher resolution video and a bigger video chat window.

To enable the new Google Video Chat feature just visit the Gmail Labs tab under Settings, turn on “Video chat enhancements,” and right away, you will see higher resolution video and a bigger video chat window.

The higher resolution video uses a new playback mechanism which enables widescreen VGA and frees up valuable resources on your computer. For it to work, both you and the other person you are chatting with will need to have the labs feature turned on. Remember that you can always revert to standard video chat by disabling the lab in case you are encountering any issues.

Moreover one more reason to enable the labs features is that Google is planning to add more video chat enhancements to this lab in the future, so if you have it on you will automatically get those too.
