Google simplifies Android video calling

Google simplifies Android video calling

Starting this week, owners of select Android smartphones will be able to make Duo calls right from their device's Android Phone, Contacts, and Android Messages apps.

The Pixel 2 and 2 XL were announced last week, but with most variants not shipping for a few weeks, those of you pre-ordered one are probably getting a little antsy. 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. Calls can be made to contacts through your Android Phone, Contacts and Android Messages apps.

NASA astronauts install high-definition video camera outside ISS
The camera that was replaced on Tuesday was adding pink hue in the images, thus degrading the quality of the images. The second of the trio spacewalk series went off smoothly and came to an end after 6 hours and 26 minutes.

So, if you thought there's really no particular reason to download and install the latest Android security patch on your Google Pixel or Nexus 6P phone, well, there you have it. If the carrier or phone does not support ViLTE, the calls will be routed via Duo App itself. From the phone app for example, the option to make a video call will appear in call history and search.

The app is available to update in Google Play now for free if you haven't checked it out. The new video call feature will be now visible to users running Android 7.0 Nougat and above - Google notes the integration is only applicable for those manufacturers that have made video calling available to users.
