"We're working with our carrier and device partners to bring this experience to more Android devices over time", writes Google. When the video call is placed, it'll go through your carrier's ViLTE service (video over LTE). So, for making a video call via Google Duo, the user of the Android phone needs to have the Duo application installed in their phone.
