Google unveiled Duo a new video calling app at it’s I/O 2016 event. It’s a simple, fast one-to-one video calling app for everyone- whether you are an Android user or iOS, whether you have a fast connection or slow, whether you live in India or US. Same as Allo, the app is based on your phone number so you can easily get in touch with anyone on your phone book.
Google sums up the essence of the Duo video calling app in four ways:
- it’s encrypted
- it’s reliable
- it has a smooth interface that fades away
- and it feature HD video and audio
There’s a feature of Duo “Knock Knock”, which shows the live preview of the person who is making the call. This will help you getting context about why they are calling and you can use this information to decide whether to pick his/her call or not.
The Google Duo video calling app will be available later on this Summer on both Android and iOS platforms.
