Smartphones: Android 2.3.4 Getting Google Talk with Video

Google I/O isn’t that far off now and it appears that the rumours are beginning to leak out as to what the Google guys will bring to the Android platform during the event, and one such leaked feature has been supposedly revealed by a guy who apparently works for Samsung.

According to an article over on Droid-life by way of Android Police, apparently Google may introduce Google Talk with video to smartphones at Google I/O, a feature currently only available on Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets.

Apparently the word that Google Talk with video came Twitter with @MAFiA303 tweeting…” Just had a video call using gmail on Nexus S. Impressive quality @googlenexusGingerbread 2.3.4 #io2011”
Of course the tweet says Gmail, which already has video capabilities on computers, so we can presume the guy meant Google Talk, as when it comes to Gmail or Google Talk on smartphones there isn’t a video call option.

Furthermore if said tweet turns out to be true then the next Android update to be released to the Google Nexus S should be Android Gingerbread 2.3.4.

So does having the ability to video chat in Google Talk on your Android smartphone sound like a good idea to you?
