"You can now start a video call directly from where you call or text message, through your Phone, Contacts, and Android Messages apps". The feature was earlier spotted online and now Google has made the announcement official. Google's new Pixel launcher (the extra software that comes on top of Android 8.0 Oreo) puts reminders for upcoming events right on your homescreen, which is pretty great if you're the type of person who constantly forgets about scheduled plans and meetings.

The roll out will begin with the first generation Pixel, Android One and Nexus devices, as well as the brand new Pixel 2 phones. It scans every app before you install it. 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.
