Google Duo Spotted Working on Android Smartphones Without the App Installed

Google Duo Google Duo integration Google Duo Android Google Duo services How to use Google Duo

With this ability, Google Duo app could successfully establish a connection on phones that don't even have it installed. The user to which the call has been made will see an incoming call with the caller's camera view even if the app is not installed on the smartphone. 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.

As reported by Android Police, the latest update in Duo includes this attribute to call users, with the spontaneity of an "Instant App" like experience called App Preview Messaging that's sported by Google Play services that allow Android users to receive calls through Duo.

The update that lets people make calls to those who do not have Duo installed in their device is meant to reduce the complaints that "none of my friends use Duo". However, Google has been up to something brilliant and is now destroying that barrier with a newly added capability to its Google Duo app. It works nearly exactly like a normal Duo call, including the Knock-Knock feature. But it is not going to work with everyone on your contacts as the report shows that only some legitimate contacts are being listed. Well, this is done via a feature of Google Play services called App Preview Messaging, which launched alongside Allo back in 2016. It's not clear if Google has done that yet. At the end of the call, the person will be prompted to install the Duo app if interested. Additionally, these users will also get a notification, which will allow them to block a caller from contacting them, or if you choose to continue receiving calls.
