Earn rewards for inviting others to Google Duo

Call your friends and family with Google Duo. If they're not using the app, you can invite them to download it so you can make calls with one another. 

Who can earn rewards

Rewards are based on where you live and the services you have. 

  • India: If you have an Indian phone number and bank account, you can earn cash rewards in Google Pay after you've made your first call.  
  • Philippines: If you're a prepaid customer on Globe or Smart, and not in a Bro plan, you can earn data rewards.
