Google unbundles Android battery app and pushes it to the Play Store
While video calling has made communication much livelier, Google wants to make it even easier to start a video call from Android devices.
As Android Policereported recently, a preview of Google's Phone app v13, which is now out, brought the new Duo video call integration to the three communications app.
Google has announced that it is adding the functionality to start a video call directly from a call or text messages on the phone, as well as from contacts and Android Messaging apps. 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.
Google's Pixel 2 phones ship with a handful lot of new features, one of which is the new and updated Pixel 2 launcher with Google Search bar at the bottom of screen. We're working with our carrier and device partners to bring this experience to more Android devices over time. It provides you with general information about your battery and how you are using it. And make sure you understand that whatever happens with that file or your smartphone or anything else, for that matter, SlashGear will not be held accountable. But also, it'll be a handy feature for anyone who's using Android and a Chromecast, but doesn't own a Google Home. If you already have the Pixel Launcher installed, this should install on top of it. Don't forget to check out our hands-on video where Kellen goes into detail.
