Google announced the Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread update for the Google Nexus S, which will become available over the next few weeks. The biggest new feature is the addition of video chat to Google Talk.

The v2.3.4 update will be available for both the Nexus One and the Google Nexus S will roll out officially during the following weeks as an Over The Air update. The more impatient Nexus owners can grab the update file right now – you can read how to do that here.

Anyway, the updated Google Talk app can do video calls – you just need a friend with a compatible phone or tablet or even someone using Gmail with Google Talk on their computer.

Google Talk works over Wi-Fi networks and over 3G/4G networks too, if your carrier supports it. You can watch a video how it works over here.

Other Android 2.3+ devices will get the new Google Talk in the future. You’ll of course need a phone with a secondary camera – here’s a list of the most popular droids (both phones and tablets) that run Gingerbread and have a secondary camera.

The guys over at have already managed to record how videocalling works on the update Nexus. Here it is, it seems to works just fine:
