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

Naturally, the first phones to get access to this new integrated video calling experience is Google's original Pixel, Android One phones, and Nexus devices.

Google has announced that it is adding the functionality to start a video call directly from a call or text messages on the phone, as well as from contacts and Android Messaging apps. If not, Google Duo will connect your video call to anyone with the app.

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

Kingfisher plc (LON:KGF) has analysts on the Bullish side this week
The stock was purchased at an average cost of GBX 1,265 ($16.63) per share, for a total transaction of £1,619.20 ($2,128.85). Moreover, Wellington Management Group Incorporated Llp has 0% invested in Stagecoach Group plc (LON:SGC).

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).

Still on integration, users of the Truecaller app now have the additional ability to do other things besides using it to identify or stop annoying calls. You can't resize it or move it around, and there's only two options that can be changed now - you can toggle "Calendar events" and "Traffic information" ON and OFF. The latest app to receive the Google Assistant feature is Hulu for Android TV.

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.

That being said, with cheap data rates, people are making the most out of video calling services today. This doesn't look to good to me considering the fact that users will be made to go through a long process just to make video calls.
