Video chat and Call Phones on Windows 8
The Windows 8-style UI doesn’t allow web browsers to use plugins. This means that features like Call Phone in Gmail and computer-to computer voice and video chat, that use the Voice and Video plugin, won’t work in the Windows 8-Style UI.
However, you can still use Call Phone and Voice and Video chat by switching from the Windows 8-style UI to Desktop mode.
- Switch to desktop mode in Chrome (Read the first section titled, “Switch between Chrome on the desktop and Chrome in Windows 8 mode”)
