    Anyone know if it works? I use gmail video to talk to coworkers as well as family all over the world. Will I have to now use FaceTime? Or does gmail video work?

    I've been looking as well and haven't found one yet. They all seem obsessed with Google Voice (for phone calls).

    Yes it does work. I was on my xoom, tethered to my droid x, my daughter was on her ipad2, tethered to her droid incredible, and we were video conferencing. I think she had to download something, not sure what though, but I think it prompted her.

    Google requires Flash to do video, so I'm not sure how this would be accomplished unless using a 3rd party tool...

    Well I found one but its iPhone based... Vtok. However it seems limited as the developer oddly limited it to @gmail only so if you have a different institution email through google it may be a no go.

    It is not beyond possibity, and no google does not just use flash. That just happens to be one delivery method. I can do video chat through iChat on my Mac.

    There is also a google labs option in your Gmail to (mail settings, labs tab) to enable enhanced video which I think is VGA quality.
