The company will let Android users start a video call directly from within the Google Phone, Contacts, and stock Messages app.

Google notes that if both you and your partner have ViLTE-capable (Video over LTE) handsets, the video call will be routed through the service rather than Duo.

According to Google, they have already started rolling out the Google Duo Integration to Pixel devices and certain Android One smartphones.

This means consumers can now make video calls directly from the phone, messages, and contacts. The dynamic video streaming resolution feature of the Google Duo APp helps to make flawless video chats over the Internet.

Google also revealed that users will be directed to ViLTE video calls if both the parties are using a carrier that supports the feature. 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. Video calls will now be directly accessible from Phone, Contacts, and Android Messages apps.

Google has just simplified video calling for Android users with its integration of Google Duo.
