Google is integrating Duo video calling into Android apps

Google is integrating Duo video calling into Android apps

Today the Pixel 2 launcher (the newest Pixel launcher) was released through 3rd-parties for older devices.

The Google Pixel 2, like the original Pixel, is expected to once again provide superior camera quality, and for those who want to get a slice of that action right now, XDA Developers has the goods. If you have a Nexus 5 or newer device, however, you'll be able to grab it.

Recently Google updated its Wallpaper Application with Pixel 2 wallpaper and other interesting categories. That includes the new Pixel 2 camera - though not all features therein work with all smartphones as such.

One big issue users are most likely to complain about is how the Truecaller app will have to redirect them to the Google Duo app whenever a video call is initiated. At a glance, and all that. If you already have the Pixel Launcher installed, this should install on top of it.

North Carolina avoids penalties from NCAA
The NCAA enforcement staff countered in a July filing: "The issues at the heart of this case are clearly the NCAA's business". If the NCAA's investigation into North Carolina were a college student, it would have graduated a semester early.

For the Pixel Launcher, it appears it will work on any Android device running Lollipop or higher. Once you update the Truecaller app for iPhone to the latest version, you will notice the new Google Duo functionality within the Contact section under a selected contact.

We aren't sure what took Google so long to make this feature available, but either way, we're thrilled that it's finally here to use.

The same goes for the Pixel wallpaper app, which can also be downloaded and used completely separate from the Pixel 2 launcher.

These images and apk files all come from the intrepid Android developers at XDA. There is also a slightly different animation when expanding folders.
