Google’s said to be working on video-calling for the Gmail app, says a tweeter who claims to “work with Samsung”. His tweet read “Just had a video call using gmail on Nexus S. Impressive quality @googlenexus Gingerbread 2.3.4 #io2011“, and as he used the I/O hashtag it’s believed Google will announce the addition at their big developers’ conference in just a couple of weeks.
Of course, it could just be a power-hungry Twitter user lying through his teeth, but where’s the fun in that? Personally, I want to video-chat Gmail contacts on their computer from my Android, and not just talk to other Android users. [@MAFiA303 via Android Police via TechRadar]
