Google Android 3.0 Gingerbread Update: Video Chat

Now that most of the top Android handsets have updated to 2.2 Froyo, it is now time to start looking at what new features 3.0 will bring. We have just learned that the Gingerbread update could come with Video Chat — this would certainly be something that users would want.

According to an article on Android and Me, Taylor Wimberly had a conversation with Andy Rubin about the possibility of video chat after saying that they are working on a solution to offer what desktop users already enjoy.

This comes as no surprise really, as a number of new Android handset now come with front-facing cameras, such as the HTC EVO 4G amongst others. The Apple iPhone 4 already uses this feature, which is called FaceTime, but there are limitations. Only those with another fourth-generation iPhone can use it, and you have to be connected to a Wi-Fi network — unless you have a jailbreak.

Wimberly also had a chat with partners of Tegra 2, and it seems that Google Android 3.0 Gingerbread will come with a host of other features, all of which will make us change how we use our handsets.

Is Video Chat something that you would use?
