Google has made the video calling easier for Android phones through the Phone, Contacts and Messaging app. This feature is now available in iPhone only. In a blog post Google shared this new feature and made available only for the first generation Pixel users, the Nexus owners, Android One devices and also the Pixel 2 devices.
Also, the company has been working with the carriers to bring this functionality to more Android devices over the time.
With this the video calling is integrated with the phone, contacts and the Android messages app. This means you can directly make a video call from the above mentioned apps also Google mentioned that they will add the ability to upgrade an ongoing voice call to video call with just a tap.
You can make video calls in two ways – if you are using carrier that supports ViLTE calling your video calls will be routed through the carriers ViLTE services or if you don’t have the ViLTE carrier support, Google Duo will make you a video call to anyone with the app installed.
Google must be installed on your device and the one you calling for. This is really a good move by the Google, making the things even better. But it is only for the Google made phones, hope you can expect this to hit you phone soon.
