Truecaller has now added video calling feature with Google Duo support. This will now allow Android and iOS users to make video calls directly through the Truecaller app. It is being rolled out with the latest version 8.31 of the app and is available for download from app stores.
The popular Caller ID app announced on Tuesday that it had integrated with video calling app Google Duo. The feature will now make high-quality video calling available to over 250 million Truecaller users globally.
Truecaller integration with Google Duo will enable users to start a video call within the Truecaller app and even switch between WiFi and cellular data for the same. Users will see the option for video calling right along with voice call option and make a video call with just a tap.
Rishit Jhunjhunwala, VP of Product, Truecaller said, “We’re very excited to announce the next step in delivering a one-stop communication platform for Truecaller users globally. By having a fantastic partner like Google, we can provide a high-quality video experience to millions of users using Google Duo.”
The initial announcement of this collaboration came in March earlier this year. Also, to recall, the caller ID app’s earlier update has brought spam folder and themes for Android users. Now, apart from video calling, this latest update brings some other improvements such as reduced memory usage and option to paste a number on dial-pad.
Coming to the Google Duo, the calling app was launched at Google I/0 2016 event last year. Earlier, it was only a video calling app, but with an update in April this year, it also supports voice calling now.
Amit Fulay, Head of Google Duo said, “Video calling should work for everybody, regardless of what platform they are on. Our aim is to make video calling simple, fast, and available to everyone. With this Truecaller integration, we’re able to bring a better video calling experience to millions of new users.”
