Install video chat plug-in from It works in Windows XP/Vista, Intel-based Mac, using IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari 3+.
After restarting the browser, open Gmail, select a contact from the chat section and see if there's an option named "Video & more". If you can't find this option, your friend didn't install the plug-in yet.

How do I create a new GMail address?

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Go to this link below;

(or copy and paste it in your browser)

Fill out the form with your information.

your name, desired log in name, password, security question and recovery email.

type in the words for word verification and hit accept, create my account at bottom when you are done.

You may have to have a phone number to verify your account with. I have 2 gmail accounts myself and every time i make a new one, i have to verify the code through my phone.

Once you have your Gmail account, you should download the 'phone, call, video' option. It is free, you can make phone calls from your computer and you can video chat for free!

If you have any further questions about your gmail account let me know!

Please rate this solution if it was helpful!

I'm a new internet user. how do i sign up to use g-mail to communicate with friends?


Please follow the below steps..

Follow the following step-by-step process to sign up for Gmail:

  1. Go to Google: In order to sign up for a Gmail account, you have to go to the Google website, which can be found at Once there you will need to click on the "Gmail" option at the top of the webpage.
  2. Create an Account: Once you have clicked on the "Gmail" option, you will be taken to a welcome page. It will look rather plain and have a header that says "Welcome to Gmail." You will also see an option to sign in with a username and password on the far right of the screen. Just under that sign in option is a small, pale, blue box which houses the option to sign-up for Gmail. There will be an option to "Create an Account" - click on that option.
  3. Once you click on "Create an Account" you will be taken to a different screen which has a form for you to complete. It will ask you for your first and last name as well as a username, a security question, birthday and a recovery email address. Read the Terms of Service and accept it and your account will be created.

Once you have opened your account, you will have access to several features.

  • You can add contacts from your other email addresses.
  • You can also make free voice calls from your Gmail account using the Google Talk client.
  • You can use the chat feature. Chat works, more or less as an instant messaging type of feature. Google Chat also allows you to chat to friends on Google while reviewing your email messages. The pop-out chat box, makes chatting on Google both exciting and convenient.
  • As a Gmail account holder, you automatically have a folder for spam mail, so any unwanted mail can be filtered directly to the spam folder.
  • You can also label your messages and star your messages so that you can keep what you need organized.
  • If you are on the go, Gmail offers a mobile version that is compatible with most smart phones.
  • Unlike other free email services, Gmail has a ton of space making the sky the limit for your storage needs. Google ensures that it always upgrades the amount of storage space on Gmail. This makes archiving messages easier, and while they do offer additional space for a nominal fee, what you get with the free email option is amazing.
  • There is never a need to worry about being bombarded by ads because pop-ups never get through to your account.

I guess you are both using gmail chat option and already installed google talk plugin.
Go to your gmail account click on "parameters" than select "chat" choose your webcam, mic ... than click verify and run the tests that are given to you.
