Duo video calls can now be sent to Android users who haven't installed the app

Ever ask a friend or family member to install Google’s video chat app Duo so that you can stream live video to him/her? No longer is that necessary, thanks to an update pushed out by Google. Duo will now send video chats to those with Android phones who have yet to download the app on to their handset.

If we date we’re playing ‘the floor is lava’ in random public places.
