The new Pixel launcher is now available for download from APKMirror and can be installed on any smartphone running Android 5.0 Lollipop or above.

To make video calls from these apps, the phone manufacturer needs to enable video calling.

If they don't, the only way they can chat with each other face-to-face is if their carrier supports ViLTE (Video over LTE).

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.

If you're outside of the USA, you're also going to miss out - for the time being, at least.

Google is rolling out a new Duo integration for its own Pixel, Pixel 2, Android One, and Nexus phones to allow users to place a video call directly from the Android Phone, Contacts, and Messages apps. So, be on the lookout if you are not already using one of those phones mentioned here.

This updated Camera app should include Motion Photo, which is a short clip of what happens moments before and after you press the shutter button.

Along with the ability to start or stop media, you can also control volume, pause, and do anything else you've been able to do with Home for the past year.

That being said, with cheap data rates, people are making the most out of video calling services today.

This functionality should be live now for most users, but do keep in mind that Google likes to roll out these sort of updates pretty slowly.
