A user with username "turdbogis" on a thread mentioning that a Nexus 6P unit, without the Google Duo app installed, was showing up as having Duo installed on another phone. Head to the comments section below and let us know!

As reported by Android Police, the latest update in Duo includes this attribute to call users, with the spontaneity of an "Instant App" like experience called App Preview Messaging that's sported by Google Play services that allow Android users to receive calls through Duo.

It works nearly exactly like a normal Duo call, including the Knock-Knock feature.

Google's video chats mobile app was announced at the company's developer conference in May 2016 and began its worldwide release in August the same year. Users who received a call from a Duo user but do not have Duo installed themselves can answer the call by dragging the phone icon up. What makes this possible is a feature of Google Play services called App Preview Messaging. There is also a notification icon that is persistent and it can bring the call into view even on navigating away from the call.

Only select phones can make use of this feature.

This means, for users who do not even have the app installed on their phones, an incoming call can instantly fly over the screen with a view of the caller's camera. It's messaging app Allo is receiving a visual upgrade as well.
