New Android Wear 2.0 Features Can Now Arrive Via Play Store

  • You can checkout new Google Pixel 2 at Verizon stores starting October 12

The initial video calling integration has started with Google-supported devices, namely, the original Pixel, Android One, and Nexus devices. You also need Contacts app version 2.1 and up to see the option on the contact's name, and Android Messages app version 2.6 or up to see the video call option in a conversation.

The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are edging closer to their official release.

"We're working with our carrier and device partners to bring this experience to more Android devices over time", said Google.

We're starting to roll out integrated video calling to first-generation Pixel, Android One, and Nexus devices, and it will also be available on Pixel 2 phones.

What does that mean for Android users? If you are on different networks or don't have the service, Google Duo will simply connect your video call to anyone with the Duo app also installed.

As with all new features rolling out to Android, when you get them depends on the handset being used. 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.

Performing video calls using Android smartphones relies on both handsets connecting to a carrier that supports ViLTE (video over LTE).
