How to Make Voice Calls on Signal on Android

This wikiHow teaches you how to make voice calls using the Signal Private Messenger app on Android. Signal is a free open source encrypted communication app that maintains your privacy. If the person you are calling also uses Signal, the call will be secured with end-to-end encryption that doesn't go through a central server. If the person isn't a Signal user, a standard call will be placed using your phone's default calling app.

According to Android Police, Duo users can now call people who don't have the app installed and who haven't registered with the service. It works like any other Duo communication, except that at the end of any call, recipients who don't have the app installed will then be prompted to install Duo. They also have the option to decline future Duo calls from that person. We've contacted Google for confirmation.

There’s Allo and Duo (which can now make voice calls) and Hangouts (which has been split into Chat and Meet). And all of them do pretty much the same thing. However, Duo does have a cool new trick...
