    Hello friends,

    Here’s the latest development in our endeavours with OxygenOS. We’ve set our sight on providing a burdenless experience to OnePlus users. Earlier in 2018, we conducted a research study with OnePlus users in India on video calling capability. Here, Google Duo ranked the highest in terms of call quality. Following this, we’re now introducing Google Duo as a native function for video calls on our devices and are providing enhanced video calling quality for all OnePlus users.

    This feature will roll out with stable OxygenOS 9.0.12 build on the OnePlus 6T, and OxygenOS 9.0.4 for OnePlus 6, 5 and 5T and eventually on OnePlus 3 and 3T with the Android Pie update. With this, you can experience a deeper integration on Google Duo on your OnePlus.

    In this build, Google Duo video calling capability will be integrated across multiple native functions:
    • Call logs
    • Contacts
    • Dial pad
    • Messaging

    That being said, users will continue to have access to the traditional carrier video calling option (currently available on the latest Open Beta builds for the OnePlus 6 and 6T). You can access this option with the 'see all' option under contact details:
    Contact >Select contact >See all >Choose video call

    Hope you have a great OxygenOS experience!

    Never Settle.

    Alright now this is more like the Oxygen OS I remember. No need to sink time and resources into reinventing the wheel when there's already an excellent solution available. Hope to see more of this type of integration in the future.

    It all started with Google Lens integration in camera...
    Lets hope they'll integrate everything Google with everything OnePlus soon... ;)
    It would be the best of both worlds...

    Nice... Looks like our voices do matter... :rolleyes:

    That's soon... :eek:

    One doubt tho...
    What if the person we are calling don't have Duo on their phone???
    Is it like we'll see the Duo option only for people who are registered on Duo???

    It still is reinventing the wheel. Why not just give Google Phone (Dialer) app? It comes with its own caller identification, spam, and ofcourse video calling features too.

    Oh trust me I've asked for that before. Probably around a half a dozen times or so so far. But it's a step in the right direction at least. I'll take what I can get for now.
