How to make Google Duo audio calls on Home Speakers

Google Duo could see a user base boost after Google Assistant integration

Google Duo is becoming an ever more popular option for those wishing to video call someone — especially now that you can make videos calls from the web. But now, Google is expanding Duo’s audio calling feature. As spotted by a user on Twitter, Google Duo audio calls can now be initiated and answered on Home speakers.

The expansion of Google Duo’s audio calls shouldn’t be too surprising. After the Home Hub was released, owners noticed that they could place Duo calls despite the Smart Display, not including a webcam. Google confirmed the audio calling functionality at that time.

As long as you already have a Duo account, you can set up audio calls for your smart speakers within the Google Home app. The setting can be found in Account > Settings > Services > Voice & video calls > Voice & Voice Apps.

From our testing, it appears as though the Duo calling feature does not work on third-party Google Assistant speakers. The limitation means that you have to own Home smart speakers to place calls via your phone number or Duo.

What do you think about this new feature? Do you think you’ll ever call someone on Duo over your Google Home speakers? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!
