Truecaller an Android and iOS application which started with just a basic thing to identify the unknown caller and since then the journey of truecaller have been amazing. The company has been since then adding new features that actually add more value to the user experience. The application has evolved over the years and has been very much useful to the users. Expanding its feature set, Truecaller today announced its integration with Google Duo, allowing users to make video calling directly through the Truecaller app on Android and iOS platforms.
This will allow truecaller to make high-quality video calling available to its 250 million plus users globally. This update enables users to launch a Duo video call with a single tap within the Truecaller app, and switches between WiFi and cellular data for uninterrupted conversation on-the-go. Truecaller integration with Google Duo is available for Android and iOS users as a permission-based service, by which users will be able to opt in and out at any time. Google Duo has also been rated as the highest quality video calling app recently by an NDTV Gadgets 360 study
