"How do I get Google Call to route audio through my bluetooth headset? It works on Skype but not Google Call"

I have the exact problem. I would like to know as well. I am using Vista. I have been to several blogs and help pages. It appears to have something to do with the audio gateway. One blog said that the problem is in using the audio gateway and not to use it. The fix is to "have your computer install the hands free device, not have your hands free device install on your computer." I have no idea what that means, but that's what was said. Please Help.

On a Mac I can  use my Motorola HS820 bluetooth headset with Skype but very problematic with Gmail Call.

You need to go into your settings on your igoogle homepage
There will be a tab for chat
Look at all the different settings and adjust them as needed
I use my computer speakers but my motorola h700 bluetooth to talk.
And of course you need to have your bluetooth connected to your computer before getting to this step

Thanks Cherryboy...It worked for me. The hands free settings where not available to me under the chat tab at first.

1) Connect your hands free bluetooth device to your computer (make sure it is on)
2) Sign into your gmail account>settings>chat tab
3) Expand the "Verify your settings" button

4) Your microphone and speakers are set to default mode. I only had one other option for both and that was my Audio hardware, (Bluetooth hands free not shown at this point).

5) Select the other option for both microphone and speakers.
6) Save preferences.

7) I then went back to Microphone and Speakers and the hands free selection was then available for some reason.
8) Select the hands free for both mic and speakers.
9) Save preferences

In my situation the hands free device was not available until I saved any preference other then default. Once I saved a different preference, the bluetooth options then became available. Both mic and speaker work very well w/my Plantronics 320. (old earpiece but still works great)

Thanks

vmloyer (or anyone)... trying to get my Plantronics Calisto to work.  In the "chat" tab the Calisto is selected for both the microphone and speaker... and saved.  When i make a call from gmail then try to have the Calistro pickup the call, it doesn't.  What am i missing?  Don't know if it makes any difference, but i also tried it with Calisto selected as the default "playblack device" (control panel/sounds).  No luck either way.
