When Google first launched the Duo app, it was an app designed to make video calls. However what about users who also wanted the option to make audio calls? Back in 2016 Google promised that audio calls would be coming to Duo and last month, the feature started to roll out to users in Brazil.
However the good news is that according to a recent tweet by Googler Justin Uberti, it seems that the audio calling feature is now rolling out to users around the world. This means that if you want to make audio calls, Duo will be another app that you can use, although we guess this only works if the other person has Duo installed on their phones as well.

In a way this makes sense especially when you consider that before this, Hangouts was one of the options that users used for voice calls. However with Hangouts now transitioning to a more enterprise crowd, those who want to make video or audio calls using Google’s services can now turn to Duo as being one of the many options available to them.
The feature should already be live but if you don’t see it yet, not to worry as we’re sure it will eventually be enabled for you.
