OnePlus to introduce Google Duo based native video calling

OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple

OnePlus will soon introduce Google Duo as a native function for video calls on its devices. The incorporation of the new feature will enhance video calling utility for its users thus providing OnePlus’ promise of refined, fast and smooth Android experience.

Over the coming week, OnePlus will be rolling out stable Oxygen OS software builds, which will deliver a deeper integration of Google Duo on the OnePlus 6/6T/5/5T and eventually on the 3/3T with the Android Pie update.

In this build, Google Duo video calling capability will be integrated across multiple native functions such as:

  • Call Logs
  • Contacts
  • Dial Pad
  • Messaging

Users will continue to have access to the traditional carrier video call option. The feature is already available in Open Beta builds of OnePlus 6 and 6T devices.

Prior to the integration of Duo, in 2018, OnePlus announced the integration of Google Lens functionality on OnePlus’ native camera app. The integrated Google Lens Mode uses the phone camera to surface information about the objects through machine learning to provide more details and provide relevant search tags. They can use the camera to scan QR codes and use the image recognition tool to get more information about things like books, buildings, and works of art, by simply tapping on it. For further information, please follow this link.
