Google Talk with video and voice chat for Android 2.3+ devices

Google Android has now become the most popular SmartPhone OS in the world. Google recently announced that its going to roll out an Update for The Google Nexus smart phones which will let Gtalk users video or voice chat right from their Android phone, whether the other users is on their compatible Android tablet, phone or using Gmail with Google Talk on their computer.

The Update is currently exclusive for the Google Nexus S users and the earlier Google Nexus One Phones. Although Nexus one will not support the video chat feature as it doesn't have a front camera, it will however support the voice chat feature. The upgrade will start to roll out soon. It will be part of the Android 2.3.4 over-the-air (OTA) update. Google says it will also be launching it on other Android 2.3+ devices in the future.
Moreover unlike the popular FaceTime feature in the latest Apple iOS devices which only works on a WiFi connection,  the Google Update will allow users to make calls over a 3G or 4G data network (carrier support required) or over WiFi which is a win win.
