The New Version of Gmail Adds Group Chat

Google had added a new interface: an updated Gmail Chat that’s only available in the new version of Gmail.

This updated Gmail Chat includes two features that were already available in the gadget: smileys and group chat. To invite a new contact to an existing chat, click on “Options” and select “Group Chat”. The problem is that your contact must use either the gadget or the new version of Gmail. If he uses the desktop client, a message will inform him to open the gadget, but in the old version of Gmail Chat there’s no indication that you invited him to chat.
