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.

If you don’t have the Voice and Video plugin installed you can download it here.
