Video chatting in Gmail is about to get a lot more interesting now that Google is bringing Hangouts over from Google+. Starting today for some users and over the next few weeks for others, you'll be able to use G+'s advanced video chatting feature directly within Gmail.

Unlike the ordinary video chat that has been in place in Gmail since 2008, Hangouts in able up to 10 people to share the same video chat at once. You can also easily share whatever's on your computer screen or make yourself look like a silly character using "masks."

See how Hangouts in Gmail will work in the video above.
