Google Duo Allows you to Call users who don’t have the App Installed

Google Duo Allows you to Call users who don’t have the App Installed

Google’s video calling app Duo users can now call people who don’t have the app installed and who haven’t registered with the service.

It works like any other Duo , except that at the end of any call, recipients who don’t have the app installed will then be prompted to install Duo. They also have the option to decline future Duo calls from that person.

It’s a good move for accessibility — and should encourage those who do have the app installed to use it more widely. Additionally, it will help expand the user base. Cody Toombs at Android Police notes, though, that he wasn’t able to reach all of his contacts through Duo. It’s unavailable for all non-Android phones, but Toombs reports there are likely more criteria that play into who you can contact. However, it’s unclear what they are.

This is all thanks to the App Preview Messaging feature, which allows Android users to use supported to contact people who don’t have said app installed. Google’s smart app has supported App Preview Messaging since its launch, but the design for recipients without the app installed was a bit clunky. Android Police notes that it’s been refined, giving a better preview for what it would look like if the person installed Allo.
