Google Duo to be integrated with Android Messages, Contacts, and Phone app

12 October 2017, 03:56 | Justin Tyler

You can checkout new Google Pixel 2 at Verizon stores starting October 12

Starting today, a few handsets will be able to send a Duo video chat from a trio of Android apps

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. The new move by the company essentially ties Duo app deeper into the Android ecosystem, and follows similar integration into the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, as expected. Some communication apps have integrated with Google Duo for video calls but it's only now that the Android team made video calling part of the messaging feature.

We're starting to roll out integrated video calling to first-generation Pixel, Android One, and Nexus devices, and it will also be available on Pixel 2 phones.

It may be noted that you and the recipient need to have Google Duo installed on one of the supported handsets (Pixel, Android One, and Nexus devices) to access video-calling directly from the phone. As the flagship devices from the creator of the platform we know and love, the new Google phones are highly anticipated products.


What does that mean for Android users?

Performing video calls using Android smartphones relies on both handsets connecting to a carrier that supports ViLTE (video over LTE).

Google's Hoi Lam confirmed on Google+ that new features for Android Wear 2.0 can now be delivered through the Play Store when the Android Wear app on the smartwatch is updated. Tomorrow, you'll be able to walk into a Verizon store and check Google's latest phones out.
