The company wants to make video calling from Android device "an integrated part of your phone", which is getting a helping hand from its Duo app.

The new Pixel Launcher will work on any device running Android 5.0 Lollipop or higher, but needs to be a Pixel device to get the Google feed feature working.

By injecting direct support for Duo into its core apps on your Android OS, Google believes that video calling will become easier and everyone can start using Duo-a video calling app it launched a year ago.

Google Duo will now only be a tap away in the native Phone, Android Messages, and Contacts app.

The APK should work on pretty much any Android device with v5.0 or above.

What is expressly clear from Google's announcement is that your video calls will be routed through your carrier's ViLTE service.

To download the new Pixel 2 launcher, head over to Android File Host for the launcher APK right this minute. It provides you with general information about your battery and how you are using it. With this integration, you will be able to make video calls in addition to being able to make voice calls. But also, it'll be a handy feature for anyone who's using Android and a Chromecast, but doesn't own a Google Home. Only if they have the Pixel launcher set as a system app will Google Now and the homepage and all that good stuff appear. If not, Google Duo will connect your video call to anyone with the app installed. Don't forget to check out our hands-on video where Kellen goes into detail.
