Google Duo Spotted Working on Android Smartphones Without the App Installed

Share

According to a report by AndroidPolice, an incoming call will fly over the display with view of the caller's camera even if the recipient has not installed the Google Duo app on his or her device.

The Reddit user also claimed that a sudden increase in users in the first list indicates that this feature is relatively new and might be because either Google Duo is now an Instant App or is a part of Google Play Services.

Ever ask a friend or family member to install Google's video chat app Duo so that you can stream live video to him/her? It's exactly how the Duo works but without it running on their smartphone.

Reports, however, say this ability to make Duo calls to even those who aren't using the app is now restricted to Android users. And yes, you can even decide to lose the audio portion of the call by muting the microphone. 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. Well, this is done via a feature of Google Play services called App Preview Messaging, which launched alongside Allo back in 2016. For now, it is not clear whether there are any requirements attached to this functionality, but having your contact number registered with Google account could be one of those requisites or maybe the only one.

The increasingly tech-savvy user base of the 21st century is quite hung up on messaging apps, and Google messaging apps are high up on the popularity list of such apps.

In the latest update of Duo, Google brings some exciting features. Also, it will display a pop-up that lets the person block the caller from contacting again. To each his own, we say.
