Google thinks that video calling should be as simple as possible, so you can start a face-to-face chat whenever and wherever you are.
According to Google, they have already started rolling out the Google Duo Integration to Pixel devices and certain Android One smartphones. Google has also promised that by later this year it will add the ability to upgrade to an ongoing voice call to video with just a tap. In Contacts, next to your contact's name, the option to make a Duo video call will surface. Tomorrow, you'll be able to walk into a Verizon store and check Google's latest phones out. If the carrier or phone does not support ViLTE, the calls will be routed via Duo App itself. Charlston's comments would indicate so, but knowing Google's history of shipping devices, it's not a certainty; perhaps call ahead if you're thinking about making a trip.
Your device has to run the Android 7.0 Nougat operating system or above (Android 8.0 Oreo) to access the feature.More news: Google removes Home Mini's touch functionality following privacy concerns
