Google integrates video calling into Android Contacts, Messages and Phone

By : |October 12, 2017 0

Google announced that it is integrating video calling feature into its Android devices. The company is enabling the video calling option in its phone, contact and Android messages apps via Google Duo.

There are a few things to keep in mind here- firstly, you and the person you’re calling must have Duo installed and activated if ViLTE(Video over LTE) isn’t used. Next, you must also have the latest versions of the Phone, Contacts, Android Messages, and Duo apps installed.

If you have a contact that has Duo installed and associated with a phone number, the icon to call them over video should appear in both your call history and search. According to Google, the option should also be appearing in the Contacts and Android Messages apps.


The feature is available only for the Nexus, Pixel, and Android one devices for now, but Google is also working with other device manufacturers to make the feature available to a large number of audience. The ability to upgrade an ongoing voice call to video with just a tap is coming later this year.
