Google Chrome will soon have voice and video chat functionality built right in, removing the need for third-party plugins and downloads, according to comments on a Google developer forum. The move will allow any third-party developer to create a real-time communications application for the browser through a set of JavaScript APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) as well as HTML 5.

The new functionality is based on WebRTC, a communications technology Google acquired in 2010 when it purchased Global IP Solutions. Google had already announced that WebRTC would become an open source project supported by Google, Mozilla and Opera. Google hopes to see WebRTC adopted as a Web standard, potentially making it a universal platform for Web-based real-time communications.
