Google Duo has just eliminated its biggest drawback

There are several attempts by Google to create a high-quality messaging application for Android. Without causing too much fuss, messages for Android and Google Duo have turned out to be really convincing alternatives as basic Android tools.

Duo is really good for making calls and video calls thanks to its compatibility between mobile phones and Google Home speakers, as well as computers. Didn't you know that Google Duo worked on the PC? Well yes, and now it's better than ever.

Google Duo easier than ever, now without a phone number

In the last hours, Google has begun to display a very interesting feature of Google Duo, which is that It is no longer as dependent on the phone number as it was once. I remember with great discomfort that when I had to try a cell phone for an analysis I had to enter and verify my phone number. Each new device you had to receive a new SMS, something that did not quite convince in its implementation.

As they have in Android Police, this requirement was essential to log in to the computer. Now just have a Gmail account to start the web version of Google Duo and make calls and video calls.

In our case, I have tried to log in with my usual account and there has been no problem, appearing all my contacts. But you can also take a Gmail account that doesn't have an associated phone number and call Duo users that you have added to your contacts.

Something very interesting that We have discovered that once we have tried to make the call, it has begun to appear on all my devices with Google Duo and my main account in which I have not verified the phone yet, great news that eliminates an inconvenience that was still there.

To be able to call you it is still necessary to add a phone number to your account.

Ultimately, to be able to contact someone, andthe latter needs to have a phone number yet, it being impossible to make a call in Duo between two Gmail accounts without a phone. However, it seems that in the not too distant future it will be possible.

Google Duo is one of the best applications to make calls and video calls for both Android, iOS (Facetime exists here as an alternative, but is limited to iPhone users) and now on the computer. With just checking your phone number you can make calls, even if you left your cell phone at home or you have run out of battery.
