Google Duo spotted working on Android phones without app installed

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

As the video above shows, the Duo app is not installed on the phone, but an incoming call can instantly fly over the screen with a view of the caller's camera.

Once you end the call, a pop-up message appears asking if you'd like to install Duo, in addition to blocking that person from calling you again. Duo users can now make calls to other users who do not have the app installed on their smartphones.

The ability to make Duo calls to people without it installed on their end should make it more accessible and reduce the complaints that "none of my friends use it".

As mentioned above, Allo has supported the App Preview Messaging feature since it launched, including two-way communication.

This might be the most important Duo update ever. It works nearly exactly like a normal Duo call, including the Knock-Knock feature. The post by the Reddit user says, "so I talked to my buddy. he runs a Nexus 6P, stock 8.1 and he DOES NOT have Duo installed (I double checked his phone) he was showing up as having Duo installed (he didn't have an "invite" next to his name) so I called him". But it's struggled to overcome the network effects advantage of apps such as WhatsApp and Hangouts: No matter how good Google Duo is, when all of your friends and family member use a platform, it's hard to get them to switch. Cody Toombs at Android Police notes, though, that he wasn't able to reach all of his contacts through Duo. The second list assigns an Invite button in front of the users.

The feature, powered by Google Play's App Preview Messaging, will allow non-Duo users to see the video call much the same as if they were using the Duo app, including a preview of what the caller's camera is displaying. This means Duo calls could be an option in the future Android dialer itself.
