Google has finally enabled a dedicated ‘Video call’ option in its Phone app. The option in question shows up while you make a normal call, and tapping on it launches the Duo app, switching you to a video call. In case you aren’t aware, this integration between Phone and Duo was already there, but the option to access it was missing. That changes now, as the ‘Video call’ option is now live. Tapping this new option during an ongoing call launches the caller’s video camera. On the receiver’s end, Duo is launched as well (provided their device is unlocked). Of course, triggering this…
During Google’s reveal of the Pixel 2 on October 4th, we spotted a new video call button appearing on the Phone’s in-call screen. Tapping on it was meant to switch both members to a video call using Google Duo. Google later added details to support articles that implied this functionality was already live, but the button remained hidden through a few updates to Duo and a couple to the Phone app.

Google has recently confirmed what was previously just a rumor: that an “ad filter” is coming to Chrome. Though many are skeptical about Google’s move, it’s clear the new technology will be different from traditional ad blockers. The new feature, which will conform to the advertising guidelines of the Coalition for Better Ads, will block ads that significantly disrupt the user experience. It is less forgiving to ads that don’t abide by the rules. Integrating improved ads standards into ad blockers isn’t new. Eyeo, the owner of Adblock Plus (ABP), has declared it will put more emphasis on the user…
Android O’s third developer preview has just landed, and we’re already spotting some pretty cool changes. Among the first we spotted is color-coding for rich media notifications, meaning that these notifications will be themed based on album art / video thumbnails.
It appears that Google is using pastel/muted colors (I’m not an artist, so excuse me if this isn’t the correct terminology) to produce these notifications. This is probably to ensure that while the notifications are easier on the eyes, less boring, and more immediately identifiable, they’re still not overly shouty.

The Nexus 6P lawsuit we previously reported on twice in April has been recently amended, and the venue of the suit seems to have changed to northern California. The latest filings have expanded the total number of actions in the suit from 10 to 23, with claimants hailing from 11 different states. It’s still early days, and this more recent filing doesn’t mean that the case has advanced, merely that the attorneys involved have decided to expand and tweak things after the initial filing.
