Google confirms they are working on bringing video chat to Linux!
Google Talk desktop client for Windows does not support video chats.
But they do have a plug-in for web browsers that enable video chats from within Gmail.
However, there is no plug-in available for the Linux platform and Google has now stated that they are working on it.
Google has responded to user queries in a tweet:
To those asking about video chat on Linux: we’re listening to you and hard at work on it.
