Google Assistant support added to Hulu for Android TV app

As Android Police reported recently, a preview of Google's Phone app v13, which is now out, brought the new Duo video call integration to the three communications app.

Google is rolling out a new feature, enabled by its Duo app, that makes video calling a more central feature of the phone. The ability to say "Ok Google, play Android Central videos on my TV" or "Ok Google, play Spotify on my speakers" is still wickedly cool, but up until this point, you couldn't replicate the same action on your phone.

The company wants to make video calling from Android device "an integrated part of your phone", which is getting a helping hand from its Duo app.

"If you and the person you're video calling are on a carrier that supports ViLTE video calling, your video calls will be routed through the carrier's ViLTE service". So, be on the lookout if you are not already using one of those phones mentioned here.


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

The app itself is fairly simple, but nonetheless impressive and useful.

This is a feature that's been available on Google Home since day one, and it's something that I find myself regularly using. Once you update the Truecaller app for iPhone to the latest version, you will notice the new Google Duo functionality within the Contact section under a selected contact.

Many people have been pleased to see such unbundling, as it makes it far easier for Google to release updates for individual components without having to wait for the next big Android update to roll out.
