With the new initiative, Android phone users will now be able to make video calls directly from were their call or message. In the previous version Google indices new features like Cookbooks, FAB button, Fast Scroll and Quick Install.

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.

One of the more exciting announcements during Google's launch of their new Pixel smartphones was the announcement of the Pixel Buds and their live translation feature. Though of course, the app is pre-installed in several Android phones.

Google notes that if both you and your partner have ViLTE-capable (Video over LTE) handsets, the video call will be routed through the service rather than Duo. That being said for the video calls to go through you will still be required to have the Google Duo app even if you never open it.

That's about to change though, with Google announcing plans to do with Duo what Apple has been doing with FaceTime for years. Google says they have started rolling out "video calling to first-generation Pixel, Android One, and Nexus devices".

Lastly, to try the integration using ViLTE, you and whoever you're video calling have to be on Verizon, a Google spokesperson confirmed with VentureBeat. Duo is available for download as a separate app on the Play Store.
