Android Video Calling Just Got Much Simpler

Starting today, a few handsets will be able to send a Duo video chat from a trio of Android apps

Google's video chat app Duo offers iOS and Android users a smooth and simple way to make video calls. Google is also planning to add a feature to voice calls allowing you to quickly switch over to a video call with a single tap. The devices are now on pre-order, and in the USA, you can only get them from Google and Verizon.

Google is making video calling an integrated part of your phone via Google Duo, in an effort to ease Android phone users into starting a video call. A recent update revealed that a dedicated shortcut would be included in all the three mentioned apps to access the video calling service.

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. For those using the Phone app, search for a contact or pick a contact from the call history and place the video call; through Contacts app, open a contact's info card and place the video call, and Messages app users can place video call right from the conversation tab.

So, just how do you make a video call with the new integration?

This means the Nexus 5 is not eligible for it, but the Android One, Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will get it.
