New Delhi [India], Aug 1 (ANI): Truecaller on Tuesday announced its integration with Google Duo, allowing users to make video calls directly through the Truecaller app on Android and iOS platforms. The new feature will now 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. The integration between Truecaller and 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.
