Google Talk now enables Android users to video chat

Google Talk Android App Since demanding work activities keep people swamped and far afield from loved ones at frequent intervals, the need to stay connected and catching their quick glimpse has been going uphill pronto. To help users maintain an active social life, Google has just launched its new Google Talk app with video and voice chat capability for Android-powered devices.

By using the newly unleashed app, users can conveniently video or voice chat with their friends, family and colleagues from their mobile device. Users can also place calls over a 3G or 4G data network, provided their carrier lends support to it. Calling over Wi-Fi gets easier too.

In the Google Talk friend list, there’s a video or voice chat button that appears next to the user’s contacts. Users can simply touch the button to connect with their favorite amigos and indulge in time-gripping chat. Impressively, the video can also pause automatically allowing users to go back to their device’s homescreen or another application.

Meanwhile this, the audio will still continue playing for an enhanced experience. The useful Google Talk app embedded with video and voice chat will be launched for Nexus S devices in the next few weeks as part of the Android 2.3.4 over-the-air update.

The app will further launch on other Android 2.3+ devices in the future.
