I need it badly. I know Google voice is there, but it's not available in India.

Clarifications
Need any good client application (Google Talk / Jabber client) that supports voice calls to and from GTalk users.

Thanks @Matthew

  • Does it have to be gtalk to gtalk, or will any voice chat app do? Commented Feb 28, 2011 at 7:39
  • I've skype too. I use it for office purpose. But my friends remain online on GTalk so doesn't make sense using anything else.

    Have you tried through the web browser? Commented Feb 28, 2011 at 14:18
  • As far as I know, you can't do voice chat through gtalk on Android

    @Ismail You can try setting your user agent to Desktop to trick the website: android.stackexchange.com/questions/6233/… Commented Mar 3, 2011 at 13:31

Fring or Nimbuzz apps from the market place both allow you to do voice calls using gTalk.

  • Does it work with Froyo?

  • The descriptions of the apps say they work for all android versions so should be ok.

  • @Ismail They work with Froyo in general but sometimes they may not work on specific devices. Try them :) Commented Mar 3, 2011 at 13:33
  • They both worked on my HTC Magic so I imagine there shouldn't be any problems on the more modern devices.

Google Talk Video/Voice support will be rolled out shortly on all Android 2.3 Gingerbread devices or on the Nexus S now (but as an OS update, not an app update, so you would find it in Settings, not in Market)

  • When you say all android 2.3 devices. Do you really mean all or do you mean at the discretion of the manufacturer and cellular provider. Because if so a lot of android 2.3 devices wont ever get it.

  • It might be at carrier discretion but you would get this faster than you would get 2.3 if you now had 2.2 (like me :( ) Commented May 5, 2011 at 17:42

Use Fring. It can connect to gtalk and enable you to talk to your gtalk buddies. But it mutes in Samsung galaxy 3.

  • can it connect to gtalk with voice? Commented Feb 28, 2011 at 13:53
  • @nathan What do you mean by that?

    the gtalk client on android can only do text chat, while the talk client in the gmail website can also do voice. Does Fring have the same limitation as the native android gtalk client, or can it also do voice like the gmail version? Commented Mar 2, 2011 at 14:28
  • Of course it can do voice. That is what the OP wanted to do. That is also what I meant when I said "[Fring]..enable you to talk to your gtalk buddies"

You can do video chat through Google Talk on Honeycomb (Android 3.0), which is only available on the Motorola Xoom at this point in time. No word on when this feature will trickle down into newer versions of Android (2.4+) or if this will become a standalone/updatable market app like Gmail, YouTube, etc.
