T-Mobile Reportedly No Longer Blocking Google Voice/Video Chat
Last week we told you that T-Mobile was blocking Google’s voice and video chat on their 3G/4G network — but only smartphones, tablets were getting preferential treatment.
Now, according to a Phandroid article, Nexus S users are reporting that Google’s voice and video chat is no longer restricted to Wi-Fi, and is flowing again over T-mobile’s cellular network. We assume the correspondence with with today’s formal announcement of myTouch 4G Slide, which features a front-facing camera for “T-Mobile Video Chat powered by Qik”, is not coincidental.
We don’t have any official comment, but if one video service get’s T-Mobile’s blessing, we feel Google’s offering should have equal play.
If you have a Nexus S (or other phone with version 1.3 of the Google Talk app), we’d love to know if voice and video chat is working on your phone. Let us know in the comments
