Android Video Calling Just Got Much Simpler

Share

In Contacts, next to your contact's name, the option to make a Duo video call will surface. But, Google did not succeed well in bringing the Google Duo into the mainstream smartphone users, so that they had aired a lot of Ads over Television, Internet and even via Billboards. With that in mind, video calls are becoming an integrated feature of the Android experience.

If both the caller and the recipient are on a carrier that supports ViLTE video calling, the calls will be routed through the carrier's ViLTE service.

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.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co (NYSE:HPE) Updated Broker Ratings
Harfst & Associates Inc. bought a new stake in shares of Hewlett Packard Enterprise during the 1st quarter valued at $127,000. The company reported the earnings of $0.3/Share in the last quarter where the estimated EPS by analysts was $0.26/share.

From within the phone app, you'll be able to initiate a video call from the call history or search.

This means the Nexus 5 is not eligible for it, but the Android One, Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will get it. Calls can be made to contacts through your Android Phone, Contacts and Android Messages apps. The DUo Integration update for other carriers and OEMs will be rolled out by the end of the Year, says Google.
