Google is integrating Duo video calling into Android apps

Google unbundles Android battery app and pushes it to the Play Store

Google wants to make video calls from your Android phone a lot easier

To achieve this, the Mountain-View California-based tech giant is integrating its video calling app, Duo into Android apps. "You can now start a video call directly from where you call or text message your friends, through your Phone, Contacts, and Android Messages apps", Jan Jedrzejowicz Product Manager, Phone app said in a blog post.

The Google Pixel 2 was recently said to have the best smartphone camera now available, according to DxOMark. If not, Google Duo will connect your video call to anyone with the app.

Assistant is a little bit fragmented (if you hadn't noticed) with Google Home, Phones, Android Wear, TV and even Auto all having different amounts of integration.

If you're outside of the United States, you're also going to miss out - for the time being, at least.

The Latest The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (GS) Insider Trading Activity
The France-based Natixis has invested 1.54% in Goldman Sachs Group Inc (NYSE:GS). (The) by 33.1% in the 2nd quarter. The Independent Portfolio Consultants Inc holds 13,413 shares with $2.98 million value, up from 9,371 last quarter.

Courtesy of the good folks over at XDA, the Pixel 2's custom Pixel Launcher and updated Google Camera app with Motion Photo and Face Retouching are available for download and installing on other Android-powered devices.

For now, it appears only Google's devices support the feature, but Google says it is working with carrier partners and Android OEMs to bring the integrated video experience to more devices in future.

After an absurdly long amount of time, Google now lets you send music and videos to Chromecast-enabled devices using the Google Assistant on your phone.

With this update, you can soon command "skip", "pause", or "resume". 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. But also, it'll be a handy feature for anyone who's using Android and a Chromecast, but doesn't own a Google Home. If you have a Nexus 5 or newer device, however, you'll be able to grab it.
