  • Google Assistant can now control Chromecasts from your phone

Google wants you to make video calling one of the easiest things you can do on your phone. If not, Google Duo will connect your video call to anyone with the app. This will be achieved by placing direct links within your Phone, Contact, and Messages apps. Google is now in the midst of cooperating with operators and manufacturers to make video calling a reality on a wide range of Android devices over time. If both participants are on a carrier that supports ViLTE, the video extension of VoLTE, the call will be routed through the carrier's service.

If you're outside of the USA, you're also going to miss out - for the time being, at least. More Android devices will be added pretty soon as Google said it's still working with carrier and device partners to expand the experience. You can't resize it or move it around, and there's only two options that can be changed now - you can toggle "Calendar events" and "Traffic information" ON and OFF.

The app itself is fairly simple, but nonetheless impressive and useful.

With this update, you can soon command "skip", "pause", or "resume". If you have a Nexus 5 or newer device, however, you'll be able to grab it.

This is a feature that's been available on Google Home since day one, and it's something that I find myself regularly using. "To use Duo, make sure you and the person you're calling have the app installed and activated", the company said in its blog post.
