If 1950’s science fiction has taught me anything, it’s that video calling is supposed to be the future. Today Google announced in a blog post that we’re one step closer to that vision of reality. Integrated video calling (via Duo or ViLTE) is rolling out to first-generation Pixel, Android One, and Nexus devices, via the Phone, Contacts, and Android Messages apps. No schedule yet for ray-gun or jetpack integration.
If this all sounds familiar, it’s because we talked about it just a few days ago when more hints of it started appearing in the dialer and messages apps, following a teardown we did that indicated the feature was coming.
