Google has added the ability to make voice calls through its official video calling application Google Duo. It started as an application that only allows its users to make the video calls has now launched this voice calling feature.
This strategy of Google with its various chat and messaging android apps is very much confusing. Google recently in 2016, launched two new messaging applications, one for text messaging, which Google announced the chat app as a competition for the most popular android messaging app WhatsApp and the other one is the video calling application which can be used for making video calls over the internet.
But the Google Duo app now allows the users to make voice calls as well just like Hangouts which Google recently split into two Chat and Meet.
Google introduced both of these apps to keep things simple. If you already have the Google Duo android app on your device, then all you need to do is just update the app, then you will find a toggle button where you need to switch from video to audio for making voice calls.
Google has been launching and updating, making changes to its various apps, but sadly none of them is a big hit and none of them has gained popularity.
