Google to integrate Duo App to Android by default

According to Google, they have already started rolling out the Google Duo Integration to Pixel devices and certain Android One smartphones. Google is also planning to add a feature to voice calls allowing you to quickly switch over to a video call with a single tap.

This means consumers can now make video calls directly from the phone, messages, and contacts. And in the Android Messages app, you can begin a video chat directly from your conversation. "We're working with our carrier and device partners to bring this experience to more Android devices over time", said Jan Jedrzejowicz, Product Manager, Phone app at Google in an announcement blog. A recent update revealed that a dedicated shortcut would be included in all the three mentioned apps to access the video calling service.

Google clears that users will have to run the latest versions of the Phone (v13.0), Contacts (v2.1), and Android Messages (v2.6) app to support the feature.

Google is making it easier for users to make video calls using its own video calling app - Duo. Calls can be made to contacts through your Android Phone, Contacts and Android Messages apps.
