Google’s video calling app, Duo, is now allowing users to make calls to other people who do not have the app installed in their mobile devices or have not registered before with the service. This applies to both video calls and audio only phone calls as well. The recipients of Duo calls can answer by dragging up on the icon, put their mic on mute or shift cameras, and end the call by hanging up.
And if ever users accidentally navigate away from the app’s interface while engaged in a call, they can just tap a notification icon that instantly navigates them back. For those non-Duo users, they will get a prompt to install the app at the end of the phone call. Of course, there is also an option to block certain people from making calls.
Video calling is not a big problem these days, considering that there loads of mobile apps that easily allow users to make video calls, such as Skype, Facebook’s Messenger, Apple’s FaceTime, and Google Hangouts, just to name a few. T-Mobile, however, has plans to make video calls native on a certain number of its mobile devices.
Video calling is definitely a fun way to get connected with family and friends. Sure, you can always make a phone call, send a text message, or email -- but nothing beats talking to somebody face to face, even if it is just done through your smartphone's or tablet's display screen.
For iOS users, they already have a video calling service called FaceTime built in the operating system. But for Android users, they will need to make use of another app in order to facilitate video calling.
This brings us to the question: what video calling apps can Android users download in order make video calls?
