Google is integrating Duo video calling into Android apps

Google unbundles Android battery app and pushes it to the Play Store

The Google Assistant is one of Google's most impressive services in a number of years, but as powerful as the AI has become in such a short amount of time, there are still some aspects that don't make any worldly sense.

Like the Google Pixel 2's launcher that we reported on earlier today, the guys over at XDA have managed to extract the new Pixel Camera APK for those with the original Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL (running Android 8.0 Oreo or above) to install.

By injecting direct support for Duo into its core apps on your Android OS, Google believes that video calling will become easier and everyone can start using Duo-a video calling app it launched past year. You can now start a video call directly from where you call or text message your friends, through your Phone, Contacts, and Android Messages apps. In other cases, including if only one person is on ViLTE, Google Duo is used to connect the video call to other Google Duo users. However, this would depend on if you and the person you are video calling are on a carrier that supports ViLTE video calling.

Family freed from militants leaves Pakistan
Pakistan's military on Thursday recovered five foreign hostages captured from Afghanistan in 2012. It says the rescue was made possible by intelligence provided by Washington.


We aren't sure what took Google so long to make this feature available, but either way, we're thrilled that it's finally here to use. It's available via the Play Store and App Store. With this integration, you will be able to make video calls in addition to being able to make voice calls. The latest app to receive the Google Assistant feature is Hulu for Android TV.

Users that opt to use this launcher on a non-Google smartphone should know that they'll not immediately have access to the Google Assistant homepage.

Still, if you want to get your hands on the new Pixel Launcher, you can do so by following the link below. Don't forget to check out our hands-on video where Kellen goes into detail.
