Google integrates its Duo video calls option on Android call screen

Published on December 13, 2017

You might have heard that Google was planning to link its video calling app Duo to all Pixel, Nexus and Android One smartphones. A report published by Android Police states that Google has started adding its Duo app to the Android calling screen. The company rolls out the Duo video chat in the regular phone dialer app that makes it a kind of Android Facetime.

A testing showcased that the button for video calling started showing in some smartphones which allow an individual to make a direct Duo video call to the second person who is holding Duo app in his/her smartphone. The person to whom you are going a Duo video call will be able to accept or decline your video call just like in case of audio calls.  We are still not sure what about the audio calls during the period for which the phone will be engaged in a video call.

The testing also states that the smartphone which adopted this feature is showing a function of a direct video call when we tap over a listing in our call logs. A tap on video calling option passes the command to the Duo app which then integrates a video calling to the person at the second end using Duo Video calling app. The only condition which is needed is both the smartphone must carry the Duo video calling app.

It is also expected that in coming weeks Google will update its G Suite with a mandatory Google Duo app which will enable people to connect via video call quickly just like we enjoys in Apple Facetime.
