work and home), you'll be asked which one you want to call.

Google makes it easy to video or audio chat from within the Gmail interface on your desktop or laptop computer.
From there, the screen will look like a standard instant messaging screen except that they'll be a few buttons there for video and audio calling.
Obviously, you can use this chat window for text chat but above the text area are some additional buttons like a camera, group button, phone, and SMS button.
What you see here depends on what the contact has set up on their own account, whether you have their phone number saved, etc.
You'll see how much a call costs once you initiate it. Using Google Hangouts through Gmail on a laptop or desktop is handy and effective but there might be times when you'd rather use Google Hangouts on the go.
It's interesting because it can be a one-way or a two-way chat: you can send a video stream of info to a person without them returning the favor, and vice versa, but you can also both join in.
And you don't have to flip the phone around to show off that beautiful meal you just prepared: Both sides of the conversation use a gesture (upward finger drag) to flip between the front and the rear camera.
Once you choose a contact from the Hangouts app, you'll see options for starting a video or audio call, much like when using Gmail for internet calls.
