According to a new post from Google, Google Duo’s video-calling feature will be integrated into the Phone, Contacts and the messaging apps on Android system. Google has made the announcement official now, though the feature was earlier spotted online.
The Duo video-calling integration is rolling out to Pixel, Android One and Nexus devices first, though Google says it is working with carriers and device partners to bring the feature to more Android phones.
When Pixel 2 phones will officially go on for sale, it will also come with Duo integration into Phone, Contacts and the Messages app.
With the app being integrated into the three main system apps, Duo will essentially try and place itself like FaceTime equivalent in the Android universe.
On Apple’s iOS, FaceTime is integrated into the Phone, Contacts app. By just tapping the option in Phone or Contacts itself, users can make a direct FaceTime audio or video call with other friends on iOS.
Google’s video calling app Duo has already crossed 100 million downloads. However, the app is pre-installed on several Android phones, Google intends to roll out “video calling to first-generation Pixel, Android One, and Nexus devices.”

This will help you make free and uninterrupted video calls to your friends, peers, colleagues etc. Now you cannot wriggle out of your responsibility to connect with your near and dear ones. In fact, Google understood the basic requirements of Android System users and got them this free utility.

Up to an extent, it also curtails your needs to bank upon other video-calling apps which you either need to purchase or install free of cost.
