With the new initiative, Android phone users will now be able to make video calls directly from were their call or message. It's also a nice turnaround from Google's historically messed up communications strategy. It's also free and works with any device running Android 4.4 or up, which should cover pretty much any phone or tablet you're now using.

There are 3 new categories added to the Google Wallpapers app: you have geometric shapes a la Nexus 4, the photo-realistic Underwater section and a cool and artistic new "Keep Looking" section.

According to a Google blog post, the company is rolling out integrated video calling to first-generation Pixel, Android One and Nexus devices.

Pixel 2 phones will also come with Duo integration into Phone, Contacts and the Messages app when they officially go on sale. "We're working with our carrier and device partners to bring this experience to more Android devices over time", wrote product manager Jan Jedrzejowicz. 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.

Ophelia becomes 10th hurricane of the season
The storm is centered about 790 miles (1,270 kilometers) west-southwest of the Azores and is moving southeast near 3 mph (6 kph). Ophelia is now located about 785 miles southwest of the Azores, a group of autonomous Portuguese islands in the North Atlantic.

However, that's never really been the case with Android, with Google's Hangouts and Duo apps failing to offer the same levels of integration.

Lastly, to try the integration using ViLTE, you and whoever you're video calling have to be on Verizon, a Google spokesperson confirmed with VentureBeat.

Duo is pretty easy to get (Google Play), so that requirement should be easy enough for both you and whoever you're video calling.
