Google’s “Skype killer” coming soon, Sprint’s Google Nexus S 4G rejoice!
Google announces its own “Skype,” Google Talk with Video on Android phones!
Here’s another reason why the Google Nexus S 4G of Sprint Wireless is not dead on arrival. According to Google Mobile’s official blog, the video chat on Android phones is coming, and no it isn’t Skype, its Google Talk.
According to the blog post, Google Talk will allow users to voice or video call other Android tablets or phones, and also supports calling a PC or Mac with Google Talk installed. The service also allow video and voice calls via 3G/4G (if your carrier allows you to), and via WiFi.
Apparently, the Google Talk with Video will hit the Google Nexus S devices first, and expect to see the service in the next few weeks as part of the Android 2.3.4 over-the-air update. Google also added that Android devices with version 2.3 and up will get the service in the future, indirectly suggesting that FroYo phones must be updated to Gingerbread to access the new service.
Can the Google Talk with video give the Sprint Nexus S 4G more sales? The Google Nexus S 4G version of Sprint will debut on May 8th for $199.99 with a two-year agreement.
