With Android 2.3.4, Google equipped its Google Talk app with video and voice chat support, which became a banner feature for the Nexus S on T-Mobile. Unfortunately, T-Mobile began to block users from connecting to video chat over their 3G/4G connections, and only allowed users to connect while on Wi-Fi.
Meanwhile, T-Mobile’s Video Chat by Qik, which lets users video chat over 3G, remains exclusive to the myTouch 4G, GalaxyTab, Dell Streak 7, Vibrant 4G, Sidekick 4G, and G2x.
Now, Sorenson Communications launched ntouch Mobile SVRS app that turns your smart phone into a VP that fits in your pocket. It’s the evolution of video relay, helping you connect everyday, everywhere.
ntouch Mobile is now compatible with T-Mobile’s Nexus S and 3G service, meaning video chat is available over T-Mobile 3G for those who absolutely need it.

The catch, of course, is that video relay service isn’t a usual video chat app. It’s specifically designed for deaf, hard-of-hearing, or speech impaired individuals who communicate with sign language and want to communicate with people who don’t. Signing into the service brings a sign language interpreter into the call between two people.
