Video Chat Coming to Nexus S via Android 2.3.4 Update
The big Nexus surprise that was teased earlier today has just been unveiled. And it’s… drum roll…. video chat for the Nexus S. And another Android update. That’s right, two surprises in one. Android 2.3.4 is not just a rumor any longer as it’s going to hit the Nexus S over the next few weeks. No longer confined to 3.0 tablet and desktop users, this is likely a standard Android feature going forward. Perhaps this will be included in some Google IO announcement a few weeks from now?
In your Google Talk friends list, a video or voice chat button will appear next to your contacts and you can simply touch the button to connect with them. Any text chats from the person you’re talking with will be overlaid on your phone’s screen so you can read them without having to leave the video. And, if you need to check something else, the video pauses automatically so you can go back to your phone’s home screen or another app. The audio will keep going even though the video has paused.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
Apparently there is still a surprise to be had. Any guesses?
