New Android Wear 2.0 Features Can Now Arrive Via Play Store

In Contacts, you will notice a Duo video call icon has also appeared, while in Android Messages app, you can start a call straight from your chat. Google can now add new features and services for Android Wear 2.0 through the Play Store.

The initial video calling integration has started with Google-supported devices, namely, the original Pixel, Android One, and Nexus devices. As the flagship devices from the creator of the platform we know and love, the new Google phones are highly anticipated products.

Gone are the days when Android users had to wait months for an updated service or native app because they were tied to monolithic firmware updates. With that in mind, video calls are becoming an integrated feature of the Android experience. Primarily, Google's video calling app Duo will be the main app that will make video call to anyone with the app installed. The devices are now on pre-order, and in the United States, you can only get them from Google and Verizon. Charlston's comments would indicate so, but knowing Google's history of shipping devices, it's not a certainty; perhaps call ahead if you're thinking about making a trip.

Google also revealed that users will be directed to ViLTE video calls if both the parties are using a carrier that supports the feature.
