This update enables users to launch a Duo video call with a single tap within the Truecaller app and can switch between WiFi and cellular data for uninterrupted conversation on-the-go.
Before this integration, in June 2017, the Truecaller Flash Messaging Feature has rolled out for iOS devices after android to provide a shorthand way to communicate via pre-defined messages, phrases and emojis.
Apart from this, in March 2017, the new Truecaller 8 has rolled out many smart features for better user experience such as smart SMS Inbox, flash messaging, high quality video calling, UPI payments service, and partnerships with Airtel, Google Duo and ICICI bank to expand its network across the world.

Amit Fulay, Head of Duo at Google, said
With this Truecaller integration, we’re able to bring a better video calling experience to millions of new users.
The Truecaller integration with Google Duo is available for users as a permission-based service, by which users will be able to opt in and out at any time. In order for the Duo integration to work, both users must also have the Google Duo video call app installed on their phone.
Rishit Jhunjhunwala, VP of Product, Truecaller, said,
Sometimes voice and text just aren’t enough and nothing beats the experience of communicating face to face. We’re very excited to announce the next step in delivering a one-stop communication platform for Truecaller users globally. By having a fantastic partner like Google, we can provide a high-quality video experience to millions of users using Google Duo.
