Hello Everyone. Google Duo Allows to Call your friends and family Even Without the App Installed on their phones. Thanks to a new update just pushed out by Google. Now, you’ll be able to receive calls made by the Google Duo app on some Android phones, even if you don’t actually have the app yourself. Check it out for more info.
Here is Why Google Duo Allows to Call People Even Without the App Installed
Android Police spotted the update, which means audio and video calls will pop up on some Android phones even without the app – it’s not clear exactly what the criteria for this is, but having your phone number registered with Google seems to be part of it.
It all happens through something called App Preview Messaging, which works through a background Android app called Google Play Services. The tech allows some basic bits of an app to essentially operate as part of Android, so you can get in touch with people no matter what messaging apps they’ve got installed.
How Does Google Duo Knock Knock Feature Works?
Some of the best parts of Google Duo, including the “knock knock” feature that lets you see who’s calling on screen before you answer, are added to this new option.
At the end of a Google Duo call, users are suggested if they want to install the app, if they don’t previously installed the Duo App.
Clearly, this won’t work when doing calls to iPhones, but it gets the life a little easier for Google Duo users – you don’t certainly have to fret about whether your communications have Duo installed before placing a call.
Google hasn’t said anything officially about the update, but it continues to push Duo and the text-based Google Allo as its messaging apps of choice, even with the likes of Google Hangouts still waiting around in the background.
