Google to integrate Duo App to Android by default

  • Google is a bit more generous than Apple when it comes to iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus trade-ins

Google is making video calling an integrated part of your phone via Google Duo, in an effort to ease Android phone users into starting a video call.

Google's video chat app Duo offers iOS and Android users a smooth and simple way to make video calls.

Google notes that if both you and your partner have ViLTE-capable (Video over LTE) handsets, the video call will be routed through the service rather than Duo.

This means consumers can now make video calls directly from the phone, messages, and contacts. So, you should start seeing small camera icons in these apps next to contacts that can be video called.

The Pixel 2 and 2 XL were announced last week, but with most variants not shipping for a few weeks, those of you pre-ordered one are probably getting a little antsy. The devices are now on pre-order, and in the U.S., you can only get them from Google and Verizon.

The video call option will show in the Call History or Search if your phone app is version 13.0 and up.

Google has just simplified video calling for Android users with its integration of Google Duo. The DUo Integration update for other carriers and OEMs will be rolled out by the end of the Year, says Google.
