This means consumers can now make video calls directly from the phone, messages, and contacts. Starting today, on certain Android handsets, a trio of apps will allow users to make video calls using Duo. Google has also promised that by later this year it will add the ability to upgrade to an ongoing voice call to video with just a tap. If the carrier or phone does not support ViLTE, the calls will be routed via Duo App itself.
The initial video calling integration has started with Google-supported devices, namely, the original Pixel, Android One, and Nexus devices.
Additionally, there's a new Pixel 2 Cityscape wallpaper, but you'll need a Pixel or Pixel XL to access that one.
"We're working with our carrier and device partners to bring this experience to more Android devices over time", said Google. But, Google did not succeed well in bringing the Google Duo into the mainstream smartphone users, so that they had aired a lot of Ads over Television, Internet and even via Billboards. Tomorrow, you'll be able to walk into a Verizon store and check Google's latest phones out. And in the Android Messages app, you can begin a video chat directly from your conversation.
