Google Duo to be integrated with Android Messages, Contacts, and Phone app

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. Later this year, we'll also add the ability to upgrade an ongoing voice call to video with just a tap.

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. Even the new-gen Pixel 2 phones have this. We're working with our carrier and device partners to bring this experience to more Android devices over time.

Google also revealed that users will be directed to ViLTE video calls if both the parties are using a carrier that supports the feature.

Gone are the days when Android users had to wait months for an updated service or native app because they were tied to monolithic firmware updates. If you are on different networks or don't have the service, Google Duo will simply connect your video call to anyone with the Duo app also installed.

Google's Hoi Lam confirmed on Google+ that new features for Android Wear 2.0 can now be delivered through the Play Store when the Android Wear app on the smartwatch is updated. From the phone app for example, the option to make a video call will appear in call history and search.
