Now, it has been extended to the web users to make it easy for them to stay in touch with their family and friends irrespective of the device they use.

As of now, the web-based Google Duo service is works with Google Chrome, Safari and Firefox but does not work with Microsoft Edge browser on Windows. Notably, this service can place both voice and video calls with it. However, the recipient should be registered with Duo in order to receive the call that you are placing.
Google announced both Duo and Allo, the voice calling and instant messaging apps at the Google I/O 2016 conference. Though the latter did not get much success, the former has become quite popular.
Recently, OnePlus and Google teamed up to integrate the video calling service into the OxygenOS platform's dialer, contacts and messaging apps. Going by the same, Google Duo can be used to make video calls directly from the OnePlus dialer and call logs. And, talking about the Allo app, it will be shut down soon and Google Assistant will be brought to the Android Messages app.
