Breaking news here, @GoogleNexus has just confirmed that Android 2.3.4 is all set and about to start rolling out in OTA updates to the Nexus One and Nexus S for some bug fixes, but the S also is getting GTalk video and voice chat. This is totally news to us. We reported that it may be coming, but not this soon. Oh and they even mentioned that a surprise is coming also. I wonder if we have a Nexus 2 in the works.
This news is fresh off the twitter account from @GoogleNexus so that is as official as it gets, being a verified account and all. I’m assuming this will have the call wonk issue fixed for the Nexus One, as well as a few other Gingerbread fixes we have all been waiting for. You can bet these updates will be opened up and merged with all of our favorite roms like CyanogenMod as soon as possible.
So start hitting that “check for updates” button if you are on a stock Nexus One or Nexus S, I know mine is far from that myself. Or be sure to keep an eye over at the xda forums as these will be popping up as soon as anyone gets them, and probably rooted within a few minutes after that. I wonder if Google plans to update Gtalk in the market for other devices with front facing cameras or if that will be for Android 2.3.4 devices only. Either way this is exciting news.
GoogleMobileBlog has now posted some pictures and video of Google Talk, with video and voice chat. Coming to all Android 2.3.4 devices and it will work on 3G/4G and on Wifi.
