OnePlus today announced that it will soon introduce the Google Duo as a native function for video calls on its smartphones. Over the coming week, this feature will roll out with stable OxygenOS 9.0.12 build on the OnePlus 6T & OxygenOS 9.0.4 for OnePlus 6, OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T followed by OnePlus 3 & OnePlus 3T with the Android Pie update.
In this upcoming update, Google Duo video calling capability will be integrated across multiple native functions such as Call Logs, Contacts, Dial Pad, and Messaging. Apart from native support, users will also be able to use the traditional carrier video call option. The feature is already available in Open Beta builds of OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T devices.
Back in 2018, OnePlus had announced the integration of Google Lens functionality on OnePlus’ native camera app. The integrated Google Lens Mode uses the phone camera to surface information about the objects through machine learning to provide more details and provide relevant search tags. Users can use the camera to scan QR codes and use the image recognition tool to get more information about things like books, buildings, and works of art, by simply tapping on it.
