Google Duo Spotted Working on Android Smartphones Without the App Installed

Google Duo lets you make calls to contacts who don't even have the app installed

With the update, Google Duo users can now call people that haven't ever installed or registered with Duo in the past. If they receive the call without even having Duo installed, then at the end of the call they will be asked whether they would like to go ahead and install Duo on their device. The update has brought an updated look to the contact list on Duo and a fun rearrangement of pixels as well. If the user navigates away from the call while still connected, there is a persistent button that will put the Duo caller back into view.

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. It works nearly exactly like a normal Duo call, including the Knock-Knock feature.

Another comment on the thread noted that Google Duo compatibility is now part of the stock Android Dialer and allows calls to non-Duo users.

What's more, they can also block a caller from contacting them again.

National Football League to consider knee injury during concussion protocol investigation
Newton echoed coach Ron Rivera's assessment that Newton was poked in the eye . "So that's what that was". Newton also said after the 31-26 loss he was dealing with an eye injury and not a concussion.

It's worth noting that Google could make this feature possible with App Preview Messaging API that works in the background of Google Play Services.

It's worth noting that the App Preview feature works only if you've added your phone number to your Google account and enabled App Preview in Settings. Until now, one of the major requirements for it other than a working internet connection (obviously!) is to be using the same app or software to make the call. Talking about Google apps, the search giant's newest app to launch is Google Pay. 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.

Google has made a very new and significant change to its Duo app.
