Google Pack

Google Pack is a free collection of essential software from Google and other companies.

The content of this software pack will vary for different languages.

Video Chat is one of the important facility which was missing in Google. So far we would have used Skype or Yahoo for Video chatting.

Google now introduced Video Chat in GMail. Yes, this facility has been integrated with GMail and not with GTalk application.

You can install the video chat plugin to avail this feature. This plugin works in all major browsers. I have tested this in Firefox.

This will definitely be a threat to Skype. But still most of us will continue in Skype as it has more options than in Google Video Chat.

The following video demonstrates the GMail Video Chat usage.

Do you concern about unauthorised access to your Google Mail account?

GMail has an in-built solution for this issue.

At the bottom of your GMail page, you will find “Last account activity” followed by “Details”.

Click on “Details” link which will show your recent GMail account access.

From this, you will be able to find out if and when unauthorised agents accessed your mail.

As shown in the above image, you can find “AccessType”, “Date and Time” including the “IP Address”.

If your Google Mail account is currently being accessed from another location, this table will list the other session(s) in the “Concurrent session information” table.

If you find a suspicious or simultaneous access, then you can sign-out all other sessions, except yours from this session window. Then you can make necessary steps by changing the password/security question to avoid unauthorised access.

This is an excellent service provided by GMail. This will help you to protect your GMail account from unauthorised use.
