"Users will continue to have access to the traditional carrier video call option. The feature is already available in Open Beta builds of OnePlus 6 and 6T devices," the company said in a release.

Duo is Google's popular video calling application with over 1 billion downloads on Play Store. The WhatsApp-rival is expected to add multiple new features ranging from group video calls to support for desktop.

The web version of Google duo will be compatible with all popular browsers including Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari. The application is also rumoured to succeed Hangouts which is set to be phased out by the end of next year.

Prior to Google Duo, OnePlus integrated Google Lens in the camera app on its smartphones. The AI tool allows users to look up information about an object by just pointing the camera at it. The tool that uses cutting edge image recognition tech can also be used for scanning QR codes.
