    I'm trying to user gtalk to video chat with my sister in another state...but it doesn't work. All it does is ring on both ends. Had anyone used g talk to video chat? She also has a bionic. Yes I know I can use Skype and I have but I always keep my g talk logged in..

    It works fine on my bionic, but I've only done phone to pc video calls with it, not tried phone to phone yet.

    I've done phone to phone with the bionic. You'll need a strong enough signal for it though.

    My wife and I both have Bionics and we can video chat with each other over 4g or wifi with no issues. I just looked through the Talk settings but didn't see anything that jumped out. When you say it rings on both ends, what exactly do you mean?

    It rings when I try to video chat with my sister but then comes up and says she is not available at this time but she is. She said that she hits answer but then won't connect...we are both using 4g.

    Either of you rooted? What system version are you both running (5.5.893, 5.9.901, etc)? I know you want to use Talk and that's fine, but have you at least tried another video chat app to see if it works? That way we can focus on Talk as the culprit and not the phones or the video.

    Works okay for me. Both ends need a solid connection. When you look a the main screen, do you and your sister both have the video cam icon on the right side of your names. Attached my settings

    I am rooted and she is not. I am on version 893 stock root. No ROM or nothing. I've used Skype and it works fine no problems.

    Well I still can't seem to get it to work. I tried to have my brother sign into it and try it but it don't even show the video icon next to his name like it does for my sister and he has a phone that has a front face camera on it too

    Do you have another app installed by google that allows yours to work. Maybe I need a plug in or something...
