    When using Google talk i can do a video chat with my daughter in her Asus Transformer from my Gnex but can't get one going my buddies Samsung Charge. Why not? Both have front facing cameras. But the charge doesn't even show the icon for video or voice chat. And i don't have the option to voice or video chat on my Gnex to him either. Is there something in settings i need to change on the charge?

    I looked but didn't see anything about that feature. Is there a setting for it and if so is it in the Google Talk settings?

    No, it is where you click on your name to change the status...there should be a box there to "allow video / voice chats"...otherwise, is the Charge modded? There was an issue when some of the first ROMs were released, it broke the video feature - you had a flash a fix. I haven't used my Charge in sometime but I would assume this has been fixed but they could be running an older version of gTalk...

    Charge is 100% stock. Maybe it is bc it's an older version bc i don't see anything where you said to look. But thank you for your help.

    You are welcome - hopefully you will find a fix...

    I am not 100% sure - but the Charge may not support video chat on the STOCK ROM...which would be why you are not finding the setting...
