Google integrates Duo video calling into core Android apps


Following reports, Google has officially announced that it is integrating video calling into core Android apps via Duo. The integration will add a dedicated video call button to let you start video calling easily from three core apps: Phone, Contacts and Android Messages app.

Currently the feature is rolling out to first-generation Pixel, Android One and Nexus devices, and it will also be available on Pixel 2. The company is also working with carrier and device partner to bring Duo integration to more Android devices. 

Google is also adding support for ViLTE standard as well. If you and the person you're video calling are on a carrier that supports ViLTE video calling, your video calls will routed through the carrier's dedicated ViLTE service, rather than Duo. If not, Duo will connect your video call.

To use Duo make sure you and the person you're calling have the app installed on the supported device, as well as have the latest version of Phone, Contacts and Android Messages app.

Google also said that later this year, it will add the ability to upgrade an ongoing voice call to video with just a tap.
