Google brings Duo, ViLTE video calling integration into Android

To achieve this, the Mountain-View California-based tech giant is integrating its video calling app, Duo into Android apps.

With the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Google also introduced a revamped version of the eponymous Pixel Launcher, with fresh bouncy animations and expanded dock functionality in tow. The ability to say "Ok Google, play Android Central videos on my TV" or "Ok Google, play Spotify on my speakers" is still wickedly cool, but up until this point, you couldn't replicate the same action on your phone.

"We want to make it even easier to start a video call from your Android device, so we're making video calling an integrated part of your phone".

"If you and the person you're video calling are on a carrier that supports ViLTE video calling, your video calls will be routed through the carrier's ViLTE service".

Google is rolling out a new feature, enabled by its Duo app, that makes video calling a more central feature of the phone. It sounds a bit complicated at the moment, but could become clearer as time goes on.

The APK should work on pretty much any Android device with v5.0 or above. You can't resize it or move it around, and there's only two options that can be changed now - you can toggle "Calendar events" and "Traffic information" ON and OFF. 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.

This updated Camera app should include Motion Photo, which is a short clip of what happens moments before and after you press the shutter button. If you have a Nexus 5 or newer device, however, you'll be able to grab it. But also, it'll be a handy feature for anyone who's using Android and a Chromecast, but doesn't own a Google Home. Google wants to make its video calling app Duo, more popular, and integrating it within the Truecaller app is one of the best ways to go about it.
