Samsung adds Google Duo to the Galaxy S20 dialer

You'll be able to chat with up to eight friends.

Samsung has confirmed rumors that its Galaxy S20 lineup will integrate Google Duo. From the dialer, users will simply tap Duo to start a video call in Full HD with 5G. And, since Duo works across operating systems, you won't be limited to who you can video chat with.

Samsung announced the integration at its Galaxy Unpacked event today, basically eliminating the need to download a separate video messaging app. Samsung says it will bring Duo its phones "starting with" the Galaxy S20, so with a little luck, we might see this on older phones, too.

Last year, Google made Duo available on the web and launched Duo group video calling (first in selected regions, but now available worldwide). On the Galaxy S20, users will be able to talk with up to eight friends at once, and they'll be able to use the wide lens.
