It’s been a hectic time for Android users that are on the T-Mobile network. With Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, Google confirmed the launch of a new feature called video chat. This was a feature that many Android owners were waiting for and looking forward to trying and now that it was available, it was time to give it a spin.
Unfortunately, those Android users that were on the T-Mobile network were in for a rude awakening because when they tried this service, they were greeted by a prompt that indicated that this service was not available on 3G and that they would need to switch to a WiFi network. I’m sure T-Mobile must have heard the anger and frustration of their Android users because it looks like the mobile carrier may have had a change of heart.
Recently Phandroid received confirmation from Google Nexus users who are confirming that 3G Google Talk video chat is now working on the T-Mobile 3G network and this has been further corroborated by others that are reporting success with this app through Reddit. We haven’t heard any official comment from T-Mobile just yet in regards to this change and we’ll have to see if they indeed do announce anything official or just let the news come out through the grapevine.
