Thanks to this new feature, over 250 million users of the app will be able to make high-quality video calling. This update let lets users start a Duo video call with a single tap within the Truecaller app, and switches between Wi-Fi and cellular data seamlessly for uninterrupted conversation on-the-go. As mentioned earlier this feature is available for Android and iOS users.
However, since it is a permission-based service, you can opt in and opt out at any time. Following the addition of Flash Messaging in April, the Google Duo-Truecaller integration will now enable video-first users with the communication mode of their choice.

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," said Rishit Jhunjhunwala, VP of Product, Truecaller while commenting on the launch.
