Google Assistant can now make Duo video calls for you

Google Assistant will now help users to make video calls via Google's own video chat mobile app, Duo. The feature would enable users to make video calls from their phones, contacts and messages apps using the mobile video chat app.

Google wrote in a Google Duo support post as
"If you use the Google Assistant: You can start a Duo video call by saying or typing, Video call [name]," 

The update was released on the latest version of Duo for both Android and iOS-based smartphones and tablets. For users, who do not have the app installed, the call would get redirected to another one of Googles messaging and video chat platform, Hangouts. The feature has started rolling out, but it may take some time to reach all users.

Duo app on Android also received a new interface on tablets. The tablet-centric interface shows the video window almost on the entire screen - with the right side featuring the video call and voice call tabs and the unified contacts search bar.
