Nexus S gets Video Chat with Android 2.3.4 upgrade

Nexus S gets Video Chat with Android 2.3.4 upgrade
Early on Thursday, word came out from the Google camp that they would soon have a surprise announcement for the Nexus S. By the time the day was done, the cat was out of the bag; Android 2.3.4 is coming to the handset sometime in the next few weeks and brings with it a Video Chat application.

With the Video Chat app, you press a button from your contacts list by the name of the person you want to connect with. Texts from the person you're doing the Video Chat with will show up on the screen.  If you leave the Video Chat to go to another app or just to check a score or for any reason, the video will freeze although the audio will continue. There is now speculation that Video Chat will become a standard Google feature on future versions of the OS.

The good news is that a tweet was sent out later today that says that another surprise is coming to the Nexus S. Anyone want to take a guess at what this surprise will be?

This video chat application sounds so much better than the shit that's out there! Only Google can get it right.
