Video chat addicts out there who use video chat in Gmail might want to take note that there is a new Labs feature that has been rolled out, dubbed “Video chat enhancements”. Once turned on (at both ends), users should notice a higher resolution video and larger video chat window. The higher resolution video uses a new playback mechanism that enables widescreen VGA and frees up some resources for your computer. Google has promised to add some additional video chat enhancements in the future, and if you’re already using this Labs feature, you’ll automatically get those enhancements.
