Duo Video Calling Integrating With More Android Apps

Some Google Pixel Bluetooth issues fixed in October security update

Most importantly Google has integrated video calling into Android via the Google Duo.

Google has made a decision to push Duo video calling further into Android by adding support in other apps. You now will be able to video call using several different apps like Android Messages, Phone, and Contacts.

This means consumers can now make video calls directly from the phone, messages, and contacts. Finally, the Android messages app will let someone initiate a chat directly from a conversation. With that in mind, video calls are becoming an integrated feature of the Android experience. The option also appears in Contacts as an icon next to a person's name.

Whether you are a Pixel owner or not, the Google Wallpapers app remains one of the best choices for wall art on Android and it's completely free, so do take a look at the link right below.


As with all new features rolling out to Android, when you get them depends on the handset being used. One of the requirements is that both people in the video call need Google Duo.

Video calling is on rise and with the ever-increasing internet penetration in developing nations like India, the future does seem to lean to the brighter side.

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. Again, once your new Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL arrives, you then have 30 days from that point to send in your trade and still receive the value they initially quoted you at.

The Pixel 2 is already available for preorder from Verizon, and the 64 GB Pixel 2 will cost $27.08 per month with a two-year installment plan, while the 128 GB variant will be at $31.24 per month. The tech giant says it is working with carriers to bring the integration to other Android devices, but it never indicated when this might happen.
