Google Simplifies Video Calling on Your Android Phone With This

I think I’ve only used my Google Duo video calling app once
this year and I’m not sure if I’ll be opening it anytime soon except otherwise…
Afterall, I can get all done in one tap on WhatsApp. But Google seems to be
wiser, they want to present you with something more simpler without opening any
app, something you’ll love.

Google is rolling out simpler video calling on mobile for
Android users. Those wanting to make a video call will be able do so straight
from the Phone, Contacts, and Android Messages apps. The integration is as
tight as you’d expect with the option to start video presented in the same list
of options where you’d call or text a contact.

Google says it will add a function later that allows you to
upgrade an ongoing voice call to video with a single tap.
Google also revealed that users will be directed to ViLTE video calls
if both the parties are using a carrier that supports the feature. Primarily,
Google’s video calling app Duo will be the main app that will make video call
to anyone with the app installed.
Requirements
Google clears that
users will have to run the latest versions of the Phone (v13.0), Contacts
(v2.1), and Android Messages (v2.6) app to support the feature. The new video
call feature will be currently visible to users running Android 7.0 Nougat and
above
Presently, the integrated video calling feature is already
rolling out to Pixel, Pixel 2, Android One, and Nexus phones. Google is working
with carriers to make the feature available on other Android devices even
though no specific time frame given.
