Google Phone app is testing new features, like displaying WhatsApp calls and simplifying video call initiation, enhancing user experience

Google Phone app is currently testing new features, including support for displaying calls from WhatsApp and simplifying the process of initiating video calls.

For select users, the Google Phone app, commonly used as the dialer on Pixel devices and others, is introducing two notable functionalities. Firstly, as observed by a user on Twitter/X, there's an integration that allows the app to showcase previous WhatsApp calls alongside regular phone calls. While this feature has been technically feasible for some time, this marks the first instance of WhatsApp potentially utilizing it.

However, this addition seems to be in a limited rollout phase. It was noticed in Google Phone version 124.0.608164421-publicbeta, alongside WhatsApp version 2.24.6.6, though activation was not consistent across all devices.

Furthermore, some users, as noted by Mishaal Rahman, are encountering a new "Video Call" shortcut within the Google Phone app during ongoing voice calls. This shortcut seamlessly transitions the call into a Google Meet video call.


Although initiating a video call using Meet from the Google Phone app was already straightforward, this enhancement significantly streamlines the process of switching between voice and video calls. Similar to the WhatsApp integration, this feature also appears to be undergoing a limited rollout.
