Google Duo Users can Make Calls to Smartphone Without Duo Installed

Well, that's not a problem anymore, as now you can make Duo calls to even those who don't have the app installed on their devices. The update has brought an updated look to the contact list on Duo and a fun rearrangement of pixels as well. People who don't have Duo installed on their Android smartphone experience calls just like Duo users: All the features of a normal video call and audio call such as Knock Knock, mic muting, and camera switching are present on and accounted for on the App Preview version of Duo. Some even mentioned that it comes as a part of the stock dialler and lets users call non-Google Duo users. Users who received a call from a Duo user but do not have Duo installed themselves can answer the call by dragging the phone icon up. Well, this is done via a feature of Google Play services called App Preview Messaging, which launched alongside Allo back in 2016. However, it is easy to say that the Duo video calling app was a huge hit because compared to so many other solutions available in the market, this one provided the best video clarity over the internet.

The new update of the Duo that makes its video calling different from other apps promotes hassle-free connectivity between people, as goes its tagline - "Your closest friend, closer". Also, it will display a pop-up that lets the person block the caller from contacting again.

Google loves to introduce new apps from time to time and sometimes they become standalone options. So, we're also opening up this feature to developers with an early access program, allowing them to extend the reach of their messaging app. However, Google has been up to something brilliant and is now destroying that barrier with a newly added capability to its Google Duo app.
