But Duo is a requirement, even if you never launch the app and only want to use video calling from the Android Messages, Contacts, and Phone apps. Also both you and the other person will need to install Duo on the phone in order for this option to work. You can now download the Google Play Store APK v8.3.42 from the link shared below, and don't forget to share with us if you do find anything interesting inside this latest Play Store update. "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". If you're not on a carrier with that service, Google will put the call through Duo, meaning both the sender and the receiver need to have the app installed. If one had to guess, it would probably be a safe bet that you can expect to find a Google Pixel 2 on hand at a Verizon store beginning today and well into the future.

Three new categories and a new Cityscapes wallpaper are now available on Google Wallpapers, but most are limited to the Pixel and Pixel XL.

That's about to change though, with Google announcing plans to do with Duo what Apple has been doing with FaceTime for years. ViLTE stands for video over LTE and is an extension of VoLTE. The company is looking to add more carriers that leverage ViLTE over time, but for now it's just Verizon.

This is an exciting new addition to Android, and you can see how it could eventually be integrated directly into Android.
