Google is adding new capabilities To Google Duo

What's more, they can also block a caller from contacting them again.

Google has made a very new and significant change to its Duo app.

Google Duo calls are working on Android phones without the app installed, report users.

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

Reports, however, say this ability to make Duo calls to even those who aren't using the app is now restricted to Android users.

This might be the most important Duo update ever. It was first spotted by a Reddit user. 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.

Anti-Mckesson Corp Institutional Investors Sentiment Runs Low in Q3 2017
Since September 7, 2017, it had 0 buys, and 16 sales for $1.80 million activity. (NASDAQ:KFRC) was sold by STRUZZIERO RALPH. The investment managers in our partner's database now have: 180.04 million shares, up from 176.11 million shares in 2017Q2.

The post notes that it could be either Instant app or Play Services related. That is because this feature will not work on iPhone and non Android users.

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.

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. If you see an invite button next to a contact, you're still only going to have the option to send a text message encouraging them to install Duo. With the latest version of Google Duo, you can still successfully call a contact on your phone even if they don't have Duo installed on their end.

You must definitely be wondering, how does Google make this happen?

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.
