Google to integrate Duo App to Android by default

Some Pixel XL owners can't install the October security update

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

So, you should start seeing small camera icons in these apps next to contacts that can be video called.

The new move by the company essentially ties Duo app deeper into the Android ecosystem, and follows similar integration into the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, as expected.

If both the caller and the recipient are on a carrier that supports ViLTE video calling, the calls will be routed through the carrier's ViLTE service.

So, if you thought there's really no particular reason to download and install the latest Android security patch on your Google Pixel or Nexus 6P phone, well, there you have it.

"We're working with our carrier and device partners to bring this experience to more Android devices over time", said Google. As the flagship devices from the creator of the platform we know and love, the new Google phones are highly anticipated products. The dynamic video streaming resolution feature of the Google Duo APp helps to make flawless video chats over the Internet. Both you and the person you're calling will need to have Google Duo installed and both of you must have Android 7.0 or higher on your handset.

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