Google has started rolling out it’s one-to-one video calling app – Duo – to Android and iOS devices. The video calling app Duo was unveiled by Google at its I/O conference this year. Google Duo is a simple video calling app that takes the complexity out of video calling about whether your call will connect on your internet connection, or if your friend is using the same type of device as you are.
Google announced in a blog post, “Today, we’re releasing Google Duo — a simple 1-to-1 video calling app available for Android and iOS. Duo takes the complexity out of video calling, so that you can be together in the moment wherever you are.”
Google Duo Features
- Duo is based on phone numbers, no separate account is required. All you need is your phone number to get started, and Duo lets you connect with people in your phone’s contacts list. Just an easy sign-up process and you can instantly begin a video call to your friends in your contact list with a single tap.
- Google Duo works well even on slower networks. Video quality adjusts to changing network conditions to keep you connected. It also switches between Wi-Fi and cellular data automatically without dropping your call.
- A feature dubbed as Knock Knock in Duo allows you to see live video of the caller before you answer the call. Google says “Knock Knock gives you a sense of what the caller is up to and why they want to chat. It makes video calling more spontaneous and welcoming.”
- Google Duo is an cross-platform app which allows to video call all your friends across Android and iOS with just one simple app. All you need is a phone number.
- Google Duo comes with emphasis on privacy and security, and all Duo calls are end-to-end encrypted.
