  • Apple can give you up to $375 for an iPhone 7

Starting October 12, Verizon stores around the country will have the smartphones on display so you can try it out and see if you are willing to ditch your current Android phone in favor of this one.

"We're making video calling an integrated part of your phone", Google product manager Jan Jedrzejowicz writes. The feature was earlier spotted online and now Google has made the announcement official. But other previously Pixel-series exclusive apps and features, such as the Google Assistant, were eventually released for other Android devices as well as so there is definitely hope that everyone running an Android phone could potentially use the real-live translation feature of the Buds. Because Android Nougat is required, here's the list of supported devices: Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Pixel, Pixel XL, and of course the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL when they launch. With the new initiative, Android phone users will now be able to make video calls directly from were their call or message.

It's been a few months since Google has added any new images to its Wallpapers app, but that changes today. It scans every app before you install it.

Google notes that if both you and your partner have ViLTE-capable (Video over LTE) handsets, the video call will be routed through the service rather than Duo.

Duo is pretty easy to get (Google Play), so that requirement should be easy enough for both you and whoever you're video calling. This is based on the IP system just like VoLTE. That being said for the video calls to go through you will still be required to have the Google Duo app even if you never open it. Of course, such high quality might not possible on regular Duo calls.

As far as everyone else is concerned, it'll be the familiar waiting game while Google works with OEMs and mobile carriers, so don't expect a rapid roll out.
