YouTube announced a couple of new additions to its team. Neither are Feross Aboukhadijeh, the creator of YouTube Instant, who was recently offered a job by the company.
Google introduced a new feature in Gmail Labs today for video chat enhancement. If you turn the feature on, your video chat experience will come with higher resolution.
Chances are, the feature will be automatic in the future. Google says by using it, you’ll be getting a preview before its turned on for everyone.
Update: Quiksee has confirmed the acquisition. The company says on its blog:
We are delighted to announce that Quiksee has been acquired by Google!
We’ve learned a lot from our previous work at Quiksee, and we look forward to bringing our experience, creativity and insight to Google. Both Google and Quiksee share the same innovative vision, and while we can’t share any future product plans, we look forward to the opportunity to contribute and do great things together in the future.
Update: We were finally able to get in touch with Feross, who tells WebProNews, "I haven’t actually accepted the YouTube offer yet. We’re still figuring out how this is all going to work out, and nothing’s final yet. However, Chad and the engineers I spoke with were excited about the possibilities."
