“Orkut is all about bringing real friends together no matter where they may be.” says Google. Well, there was a time when Orkut was the sole super power of social media on the internet , but Orkut enjoys that status no more. But still Google is desperate and not sitting back without a fight. Google has just announced another feature in Orkut in hope that people still want this social media platform to progress. For that matter Google has announced video chat inside Orkut.
Its now possible to video chat with all of your friends inside Orkut. You can keep in touch with your friends face to face and no need to shuffle different browser windows, just stay inside Orkut and enjoy the video chat.
You need just a webcam connected to your machine and take a few seconds to download video chat plugin, install it, and you are set to go.
