The dynamic video streaming resolution feature of the Google Duo APp helps to make flawless video chats over the Internet. If you're not on a carrier with that service, Google will link the call through its Duo app, as long as both parties have it installed. Not only just the normal Duo Call over the Internet, the Google also says that they will be enabling a Video Call feature over 4G LTE Network, aka ViLTE.

Google's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL ship in a little over a week for early adopters, but for some customers, trying the phone in person is the only thing that will actually seal the deal. Calls can be made to contacts through your Android Phone, Contacts and Android Messages apps. You also need Contacts app version 2.1 and up to see the option on the contact's name, and Android Messages app version 2.6 or up to see the video call option in a conversation.

Google officially unveiled the new Pixel 2 series smartphones last week. Google is working with carriers to make the feature available on other Android devices, but the company hasn't given a specific timeline.
