Android 2.3.4 Update Gets Detailed
Earlier today, Google announced that it would be releasing Android 2.3.4 to the Nexus S and the Nexus One bringing video chatting via Google Talk to the former and bug fixes to the latter.
And while we pretty much know what to expect from the Nexus S’ new video chat feature, Nexus One owners were left in the dark as to what specific bug fixes would be coming their way in about two weeks.
Well, Google has come clean with the details about the update and it has posted them for Nexus owners to see. Here is what to expect with the upcoming Android 2.3.4 update.
New feature: video chat in Google Talk
Previously only available to tablet users on Android 3.0, Google Talk with video and voice chat is now available on Android phones running 2.3.4 that have front-facing cameras, starting with Nexus S. For more information please see our blog post:
