I have been waiting for this feature for a long time. Going to try it out soon. Setting things up.
I am an avid Gmail (Google service) service user and this one feature was sorely lacking.

Update: just tried on LinuxMint Helena. Voice features working fine. But I could not see other party though they saw me.
I have no idea why this happened.
