Google is working hard to make Google Duo the best messaging app it can offer. They have made support for two-way video calls on Android and iOS smartphones, the next step was tablets, then on the web for Windows and iOS computers and Chromebooks, and most recently the camera-less Google Home Hub. Now it appears two-way audio-only Duo calls may be possible soon on Google Home smart speakers, according to Android Police.
A reader who had been setting up his Home Mini saw the screen above and sent it over. It’s odd that this would show up in setup when it hasn’t been announced or spotted anywhere else, but it’s hard to dispute when the screenshot is right there. We’re not sure when the functionality will actually be released, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted when we hear more.
So far, Google is yet to make a public announcement about the feature, but you can check whether you are able to make Google Duo audio calls yet on your Home speaker by heading to the settings menu in the Google Home app on your mobile device.
