We have some good news for those of you with a Google Nexus S handset, as Google has surprisingly made available the very latest version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The 2.3.4 download is a manual install and adds two very worthwhile features for Nexus S owners.
The update was originally due to drop within the next few weeks via OTA, but we can confirm that you can now download it manually from Google’s website here, as reported from Engadget. You’ll need to ensure that you are currently running 2.3.3 on the i9020T model Nexus S, and we definitely wouldn’t recommend attempting to install this on any other versions.
Gingerbread version 2.3.4 adds support for Video and Voice chat through Google Talk – two features which we’re sure you can’t wait to try out with friends or business associates. We’ve included a video below this post which gives you a preview of how the new features will look like on the Nexus S – the interface is simple, but we like it.
Providing you have the right version as stated above, go ahead and download it and let us know what you think of it. If you have any problems whilst installing version 2.3.4, leave us a comment below.
What are your impressions of Google Video and Voice chat? Is it running smooth on your 3G data plan or not?
