"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.

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. So in this case video calls are routed through a high quality video channel. 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. Of course, such high quality might not possible on regular Duo calls. However, Google is also working to being the feature to other Android devices as well. If you can't wait you can download the Play Store APK v8.3.42 from source below.
