Google have just introduced several new features like File Transfer, Video Chat and Voice Chat in web-based chat on iGoogle and Orkut. Now you can do video chat, voice chat and share files with your friends right from your browser. Currently File Transfer feature is not supported in Gmail chat but this feature will be available soon.
Some words by Bruce Leban, Software Engineer at Google:
Have you ever wanted to quickly send a file to a friend whom you’re chatting with online? Starting today, you can share photos, documents, and other files while chatting in iGoogle and orkut.
To share a file with a friend just start open chat window and click on the Actions menu on the right most corner, click on Send a file... and you will be asked to choose the file you want to send. As soon as you will select the file, you friend will be asked to accept your file. Thats it!
