Google to integrate Duo App to Android by default

In Contacts, you will notice a Duo video call icon has also appeared, while in Android Messages app, you can start a call straight from your chat.

Google's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL ship in a little over a week for early adopters, but for some customers, trying the phone in person is the only thing that will actually seal the deal.

The initial video calling integration has started with Google-supported devices, namely, the original Pixel, Android One, and Nexus devices. As the flagship devices from the creator of the platform we know and love, the new Google phones are highly anticipated products. We're already seeing the integration on the Phone and Contacts app of the Nexus 6P, however, not within the Android Messages app yet. With ViLTE (Video Over LTE), users can immediately switch to Video call even while in between a normal voice call. In Contacts, next to your contact's name, the option to make a Duo video call will surface.

The video call option will show in the Call History or Search if your phone app is version 13.0 and up. If the carrier or phone does not support ViLTE, the calls will be routed via Duo App itself.
