Google Duo, the app that launched last year and was exclusive only for video calls, can now be made to use for voice calls too, after the company introduced the audio-only calls feature. You can expect the update to arrive on your device in just a short period of time.
The feature will be available globally, as officially announced by Google through a tweet. Amit Fulay, Head of Product – Google Allo and Google Duo on his official twitter handle, posted information about the global roll out of the newly introduced Google Duo audio calling feature. The tweet read “#GoogleDuo Audio calls is rolling out worldwide now …”.
Duo was introduced last year and emerged as a tough competitor to FaceTime, Apple’s very own video-only app. It’s designed to work for anyone with a smartphone across all major network connections. Duo and Allo are a part of Google’s new messaging strategy, and they will be the main consumer-focused apps going forward, leaving out its very own Hangouts app behind, which is supposedly not going down and will be available on the PlayStore for download, but no sort of updates are expected there as of now.
