Israeli video chat startup Rounds has announced today that its Chrome extension that allows you to add video chat to any Web page is now available to download.

We knew the new feature was on the way, as it was announced in March, but we weren’t sure exactly when it would be offered more widely beyond a limited beta. In essence, the extension allows you to add “video bubbles” to any Web page (whether that’s static content, video, live events, etc.) for live video chat. The company say it’ll support up to 12 users at once.

The new desktop feature grew out of the company’s experience building its Android and iOS apps, which allow users to play games, video chat, browse the Web or watch videos together.
