I recently heard about Google Hangouts at Gmail, and I accidentally ignored “Try it now” while it asked me to try Google Hangouts. Is there any way to enable the new features back on Gmail if I ignored the "try it now"?

I already refereed here, but I can’t see "Try the new Hangouts" below my account picture.

i also cross checked by clearing cache,cookies,history of my browser and tried with fresh installation of browser with all updated plugins.

Here is my chat window screenshot:

Can you add a screenshot with the drop-down menu you have when you click on your picture? It should be the first option, above the current status options — Available, Busy, Invisible. –  Alex May 31 '13 at 5:59
Also, if you have a Google+ account, you can try the new Hangouts there, where it’s the default (and only) option for chat. –  Alex May 31 '13 at 6:01

Try signing out from Gmail and emptying your browser’s cache/delete cookies. Also, sign out from Chat first, as well. –  Alex May 31 '13 at 7:01
Long shot: it could also be related to the fact that you don’t have the voice/video plugin installed. –  Alex May 31 '13 at 7:03
