Google is now in the midst of cooperating with operators and manufacturers to make video calling a reality on a wide range of Android devices over time.

Google has also posted a new support note for making video calls with the latest versions of the Android Phone, Contacts and Messages apps.

Google is rolling out a new feature, enabled by its Duo app, that makes video calling a more central feature of the phone.

What is expressly clear from Google's announcement is that your video calls will be routed through your carrier's ViLTE service. 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. It sounds a bit complicated at the moment, but could become clearer as time goes on. You might have seen the new Pixel launcher that comes pre-installed on those devices.

This is a feature that's been available on Google Home since day one, and it's something that I find myself regularly using.

We tested it on a Google Pixel ourselves and found that, while the AR Stickers and Motion Photos didn't work, Face Retouching and the exposure lock were functional.
