Google Wallpapers gets three new categories and Pixel 2 backdrop

Google Wallpapers App Updated With New Categories, Bit of Pixel 2 ...

This means consumers can now make video calls directly from the phone, messages, and contacts.

Google Duo with ViLTE is now being integrated into Phone, Contacts and Message apps on Android.

Google will start rolling out the integrated video calling feature to its Nexus, Android One and Pixel devices, including the recently-launched Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, before expanding to other handsets. Google's new Pixel launcher (the extra software that comes on top of Android 8.0 Oreo) puts reminders for upcoming events right on your homescreen, which is pretty great if you're the type of person who constantly forgets about scheduled plans and meetings. Though of course, the app is pre-installed in several Android phones.

He said he assumed they involved consensual affairs because Harvey Weinstein had insinuated that he was a philanderer. Beckinsale said she left "uneasy but unscathed" after declining alcohol and saying she had school in the morning.

If both the caller and the recipient are on a carrier that supports ViLTE video calling, the calls will be routed through the carrier's ViLTE service.

There are 3 new categories added to the Google Wallpapers app: you have geometric shapes a la Nexus 4, the photo-realistic Underwater section and a cool and artistic new "Keep Looking" section. 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.

That's about to change though, with Google announcing plans to do with Duo what Apple has been doing with FaceTime for years. The Google Play Store version 8.3.41 hinted to have many new features such as quick install, the addition of cookbooks and much more.
