Hello, it seems that native video calling gone missing from dial menu on my G781B. I mean that by tapping the video calling icon in a contact, a message pops up which says "make video call with". I have Google Duo ready set with my Gmail account. I know that by tapping on that icon, it should transfer me to Duo but it won't. One other strange thing there is no "make video calls using" option on phone calls settings. But I can make video calls through Google Duo app. Can someone explain what is happening?
google how to 'set up duo with your phone number'.
Or just open the 'Duo' app and in top right cornet open settings, on top the first thing 'Account' , there your google account email and mobile number should be visible, if it's not, then add it.
Also, make sure Duo has all permissions (you probably not allowed it to make calls?).
If you are set up in Duo, your friends will see your number under 'connect to' and not under 'invite' , bcoz you can't invite someone who already activated Duo.
Funny, that i didn't have to activate or do anything on my Xiaomi phone, and it was already working.
But on my S20 Ultra(G988B) i actually had to type in my phone number and activate it.
No you seem that my question wasn't clear enough. Native video call missing. When ever i tap the camera icon in any contact, nothing happens and message pops up saying ''make call with''
ahh this " When ever i tap the camera icon in any contact, nothing happens and message pops up saying ''make call with'' is what you have supposed to post as a question 😉
hmm, well, i actually use the google contacts app, bcoz the one from samsung is too fancy, i like it simple, but i just checked and both apps work fine with video calling, it immediately switches to Duo.
But from what i see you got S20 FE and i have S20 Ultra, if that makes any difference.
How about you uninstall Duo, if you can, and install google contacts app, then install Duo, set google contacts as default app, and set up Duo; - it's worth a try.
if that won't work then there is a different problem than just settings, in that case i would send feedback with the screen of the message you get.
@skepasti_21: Can you try heading to Settings > Apps > Tap the 3 dots in the top right > Permission Manager > Telephone > Duo, and make sure that 'Allow' is selected here. If it is, go back to Settings > Apps > 3 Dots > Reset App Preferences, then open the Phone app, select a contact and tap the Duo button. Does this now prompt you to open the video call with Duo?
one last thing, if you have one google account, but multiple phones/numbers, you can use only one for video calling with Duo
That gave me a hint and the fact that my device is a dual SIM device I came up with the idea to deactivate the one SIM slot, well I did, and it did work with one SIM ,then I crossed my fingers to work with both sims enabled and IT DID!!!! 😁😁😁
Thank you guys for your time!!!
@Kris G @AndrewL unfortunately it works only if i set as default only one SIM for calls, if i choose the option "ask before call" that causes the issue with video calls. Its a bloody bug and SAMSUNG should be aware of this!
