It seems that Google is preparing to cope with Microsoft and Skype in the field of video communications. A few hours ago the Mountain View announced the development of a video chat tool for Chrome, and so little has been able to see the idea is very promising.
The firm’s objective is to integrate search engine WebRTC technology
(an open source project that allows real-time communications from the web browser) in your browser recognized. This will be video conferencing without downloading an additional desktop software
. One of the most important aspects to note is that the project will not be limited to only Google Chrome, as in the presentation, said he would also be implemented in other browsers (Firefox and Opera, presumably).
Also, as is a free software WebRTC all users who are putting together a website can take this technology and, in theory, create your own communication tool like Skype . The project is very promising and certainly Google and know surfers get too much juice. Let’s wait and let the weeks pass to see how it goes this idea. In the case of this success is no doubt that WebRTC will become one of the many new features of Chrome OS. The developers have in their hands the tools to innovate once more, hopefully surprise us with something fresh and sweeping . Via | Engadget.
