If they don't, the only way they can chat with each other face-to-face is if their carrier supports ViLTE (Video over LTE). In other cases, including if only one person is on ViLTE, Google Duo is used to connect the video call to other Google Duo users.

Along with the ability to start or stop media, you can also control volume, pause, and do anything else you've been able to do with Home for the past year. But also, it'll be a handy feature for anyone who's using Android and a Chromecast, but doesn't own a Google Home.

Many people have been pleased to see such unbundling, as it makes it far easier for Google to release updates for individual components without having to wait for the next big Android update to roll out. This doesn't look to good to me considering the fact that users will be made to go through a long process just to make video calls.
