FaceTime has been an integral part of Apple's iOS operating system since 2010. With the new initiative, Android phone users will now be able to make video calls directly from were their call or message. The devices are now on pre-order, and in the United States, you can only get them from Google and Verizon. Google says they have started rolling out "video calling to first-generation Pixel, Android One, and Nexus devices". So in this case video calls are routed through a high quality video channel. ViLTE stands for video over LTE and is an extension of VoLTE. The scanning process is done 24/7, apparently not on your end, unless you decide to install the app. Google has also updated its Play Services app recently, the app has been updated to version 11.5.30 and comes with many stability improvements as well as under the hood changes. Of course, such high quality might not possible on regular Duo calls. We've installed it on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 running Android 7.1 Nougat and the Google Pixel XL running Android 8.0 Oreo to confirm.
