Earlier today, Google announced the Android 2.3.4 OTA update for the Nexus S. The Android 2.3.4 update brings with it some important bug fixes and video chatting capability to Google Talk over Wi-Fi and on 3G/4G.
The big G said that the OTA will be rolled out to all Nexus S owners in a few weeks’ time. However, for the impatient Nexus S owners, the OTA update is already available for manual download and installation.
Nexus S owners should head over to this thread over at XDA forums to download the appropriate OTA file for their handset.

Using the volume keys, select the Recovery’ option. Once you are in the Recovery mode, select the option Apply sdcard update.zip’. Once the file is flashed, reboot your phone. After rebooting, users will be able to enjoy the latest version of Gingerbread on their Nexus S.
