Duo video calls can now reach users without the app

For those who will receive a call for a Duo user, they will receive a notification and they will be able to receive by dragging up the phone icon and do most of the features found in Duo as if they have it installed.

Another comment on the thread noted that Google Duo compatibility is now part of the stock Android Dialer and allows calls to non-Duo users.

According to reports, the process did not change for the veteran users of Duo. Recipients of the call even have the option to block the caller from contacting them again once the call ends. People who don't have Duo installed on their Android smartphone experience calls just like Duo users: All the features of a normal video call and audio call such as Knock Knock, mic muting, and camera switching are present on and accounted for on the App Preview version of Duo.
