Speculations doing the rounds that Google Duo, Google's video calling app, works on devices that don't have the app installed. The user to which the call has been made will see an incoming call with the caller's camera view even if the app is not installed on the 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. There is also a notification icon that is persistent and it can bring the call into view even on navigating away from the call. It is said that this feature works the same way it does with regular Duo calls including Knock-Knock. The person on the receiving end of the call is asked with a prompt if he wants to install Duo on his phone, which would allow him to initiate Duo calls instead of only receiving them. Besides, the recipient will also have an option to block the caller. Well, this is done via a feature of Google Play services called App Preview Messaging, which launched alongside Allo back in 2016. However, Google has been up to something brilliant and is now destroying that barrier with a newly added capability to its Google Duo app. However, it does not let you do activities like sending attachments or images and changing the text size by dragging the send button up or down.

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. One of the app's shortcomings has been an inability to call people who not on your contacts list and have not registered with the service. Google has been making the feature available to developers through an early access preview program with the promise of opening it up to all developers of messaging apps at a later date.
