Google is finally getting serious about video calling on Android

You now will be able to video call using several different apps like Android Messages, Phone, and Contacts.

Google will start rolling out the integrated video calling feature to its Nexus, Android One and Pixel devices, including the recently-launched Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, before expanding to other handsets.

Google has just simplified video calling for Android users with its integration of Google Duo. If not, Duo will connect you to anyone with the app installed. The new Duo video calling feature will now be coming to more Android apps, but only for selected devices. For example, Google announced two messaging apps, Allo and Duo at Google I/O in mid-2016, with the latter aimed at video calls. Combined with May's update, there are now seven categories available in the app for all users.

In case you have a hard time choosing which wallpaper to opt for out of the hundreds available, you also have the option of selecting your favorite category and letting the app automatically set a new wallpaper every day. As stated in the aforementioned areas, tap Video call option. We're already seeing the integration on the Phone and Contacts app of the Nexus 6P, however, not within the Android Messages app yet.

Once the hurricane arrives following its journey across the Atlantic Ocean it is expected to bring winds of up to 70mph. A Met Office statement said: "A spell of very windy weather is likely on Monday in association with ex-Ophelia".


Since our original story went up, Google says they are updating the Google Store trade-in program to give you 30 days from the receipt of your new phone to trade in your old phone and receive the original price they quoted you. Is taking a screenshot on Google Pixel 2 more hard than it is on other Android smartphones?

For now, the new video calling integration will be on Android One and first-generation Pixel. If one had to guess, it would probably be a safe bet that you can expect to find a Google Pixel 2 on hand at a Verizon store beginning today and well into the future.
