Created by Android developer Tommaso Berlose and spotted by PhoneArena, "Another Widget" will put the Pixel 2's homescreen calendar on your current Android phone.

That's about to change though, with Google announcing plans to do with Duo what Apple has been doing with FaceTime for years.

"We want to make it easier to start a video call from your Android device, so we're making video calling an integrated part of your phone", said Google.

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. You can now download the Google Play Store APK v8.3.42 from the link shared below, and don't forget to share with us if you do find anything interesting inside this latest Play Store update. Google has further assured that it will be adding a new feature which allows users to switch from voice to video calls without disconnecting the app.
