Google Duo allows you to call people who don't have the app

Alongside this fun rearrangement of pixels, there was also a very real, very significant change made: You can now call people that haven't installed or registered with Duo in the past. The user was also able to make a call on the Nexus 6P for the Duo app and it went through. On other platforms like iOS, if a user wishes to make a Duo call to someone else, they will need the app on their phone. Google's added a lot of new features and improvements since its release in 2016, but like any other communications app, it's faced the same issue of forcing you to encourage your friends and family members to actually download it so you can talk to them.

The popular video calling app Google Duo comes up with new features.

The new addition works exactly like a usual Duo call which includes the Knock-Knock feature through which you can see the preview of the caller before you pick it up. 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. However, this feature is now limited to Android phones and first spotted by Android Police. The second list assigns an Invite button in front of the users. One user wrote, "Yep I noticed this in the dialer the other day". It's starting to allow Duo users to initiate video calls with people who don't have the app installed on their device, according to Android Police.

This feature has now been spotted on Android phones. Of course, this might end up getting limited to just stock Android phones.
