Google is a bit more generous than Apple when it comes to iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus trade-ins

The functionality lets you start a video call directly from three core apps: Android Messages, Contacts, and Phone. The feature was earlier spotted online and now Google has made the announcement official.

Just last week Google officially unveiled the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL. On Apple's iOS, FaceTime is integrated into the Phone, Contacts app. Users can make a direct FaceTime audio or video call with other friends on iOS by just tapping the option in Phone or Contacts itself.

Anyway, integrated video calling is being rolled out first to first-generation Pixel handsets and Android One and Nexus devices, Google says. That apart the whole ViLTE compatibility thing is unclear since both the caller and the receiver needs to be on a carrier that supports ViLTE.

Three people killed in skydiving accident at Mission Beach, Queensland
Paramedics said they were called out just after 3:00pm to Alexander Drive where two men and one woman were found deceased. Skydive Mission Beach's website states that the company offers tandem jumps from altitudes of up to 15,000ft or 4572m.


That's about to change though, with Google announcing plans to do with Duo what Apple has been doing with FaceTime for years.

Scott Charlston, the PR maven for Google's carrier partner Verizon, tweeted that you should head on down to the nearest store if you want a hands-on preview of the Pixel 2.

It may be noted that you and the recipient need to have Google Duo installed on one of the supported handsets (Pixel, Android One, and Nexus devices) to access video-calling directly from the phone. ViLTE stands for video over LTE and is an extension of VoLTE. The Google Play Store version 8.3.41 hinted to have many new features such as quick install, the addition of cookbooks and much more.
