    I updated to Android 10 and one of the updates I received is Google Duo June-9-2020 version 91.0.315322534.DR91_RC03.s and I do not have Google DUO installed on my phone. It does not show in my Apps.

    Why am I receiving this update ?

    Why am I showing a Google Duo update when I don't have it in my Apps list?-screenshot_20200614-031058_google-play-store.jpg

    Here are all the installed Google Apps

    It's named as Duo on the app list. If you find it you can disable it, as I did.Why am I showing a Google Duo update when I don't have it in my Apps list?-screenshot_20200614-220159.jpeg

    Go to Settings>Apps, then tap Menu>Show System if you don't see it where Javier P indicated. Google Duo has become Google's native video calling app (pretty much Google's version of FaceTime, but more inclusive -- iPhone users can install it as well), and is preinstalled on all of their Pixel phones.

    The app google duo cannot be found and this is a security flaw in google update system. the file is no visible when searched in apps or system apps. A search for duo which is not the name of the app also shows no app.

    this is the second time it has occurred. In Android 9, I had posted Samsung pay with the similar issue except it did not have a version.

    The update google duo has disappeared from the update list and was not installed because the recent installed apps does not show the app.

    Yes, it is on my S10+, but I disabled it since I don't use video calling.

    Not exactly sure how this could be considered a security flaw. A glitch, maybe, but security flaw? Are you concerned that Google was trying to lure you into installing a malicious app from Google themselves?

    Just so I can satisfy my curiosity, can you please show a screenshot of the Settings>Apps menu after you've also tapped Menu>Show System, and scroll down to the "D" section where Duo would normally be listed?

    I am concerned that an update that appeared for an appliaciotn google duo which I did not install and did not exist in my applications or system app after appearing then disappeared. This is a security flaw as no update should occrr for applications not installed on the phone.

    This phone was recently updated to Android 10. Also this occurrred before with Samsung pay which I did not use and cannot remove from the phone it showed an update and without installing it it also disappeared.

    Updates that are valid do not disappear as long as the application is installed.

    Is there another method to verify installed updates? How can a update for an app like google duo not be found in apps ?

    You can complain to Samsung, since they're the ones pushing the update. My guess is that this has to do with Samsung making both Duo and Samsung Pay essentially into native apps on their devices.. Your phone presumably didn't have these installed before, and one of the major changes with their Android 10 update was to include these apps as native.

    An easy way to find any app is using the Search feature in the settings. Open the settings, tap the magnifying glass in the top bar and type 'Duo' or any other app that you want to locate. It can find even the apps that you disabled.

    It integrates the Duo option into your Phone application, so when you look at a contact, you see the video call option.

    I don't accept the answer that google incorporated this app into another. The reason is this occurred before where Samsung pay update appeared then disappeared from my updates without me updating(See android 9 forum). Also the name clearly states Google Dua so any app that requires updating that does not match that name is nefarious and Google should be well aware.

    Why would the update disappear from the update list without me updating the app? Can anyone provide an example of any kind ?

    It's not Google that incorporated an app into another, it's Samsung that integrated Duo into their dialer and there were plans to do the same with their messages app.

    The behavior of the update is not correct. If I have any app and I cannot view the app in the google operating system that is a problem with google Android.

    Can you explain this little more?

    So give feedback to Samsung and/or Google about it. This seems to be a real sticking point for you, so that's really the best advice we can give. We don't have any control over how Google or Samsung code their systems.

    What do you see when you search for it in the Google Play store?

    Maybe I’m stating this incorrectly. Are you complaining that OEM for your device essentially pushed out new app to your phone as essentially a system app?

    How’s that any different than if the app was installed on your hardware prior to purchase? Either front door or side door, the maintenance guy is replacing something decided before you moved in.
