Google recently announced that they were replacing the video calling feature in Gmail with Google+ Hangouts.
The rollout was limited.
The company has today confirmed that this feature has been rolled out to users in India.
You can now start a hangout from inside Gmail with your Google Contacts.
The company said:
You can continue to enjoy 1:1 video chat with any Gmail user, but now you’ll be able to add up to 9 people at once after they’ve upgraded to Google+. What’s more, with Hangouts you can watch YouTube videos with friends, collaborate on Google Docs, or play games by adding apps from the menu on the left. If you find yourself with a slow connection, just switch over to ultra low bandwidth mode to keep the conversation going.
