So usually in the gmail chat window, next to people's names, there is a green circle, or red, etc. But lately, there has been a green square with a little green arrow next to it and I can not find out why that is?

Thanks!

That square with an arrow is for contacts who have the Gmail Voice and Video Chat plugin installed. It is supposed to look like a movie camera, but I understand that it doesn't really look like that.

If you have the plugin installed, compatible webcam, microphone and high speed internet, you can video chat with all your contacts with that special symbol.
