Google Duo

Back at I/0 2016 event Google unveiled a new video calling app.
 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. The app is based on your phone number so you can easily get in touch with anyone on your phone book.  

The roll out of this app begins today, the Mountain View, California-based company in a blog post. 

"Today, we’re releasing Google Duo — a simple 1-to-1 video calling app available for Android and iOS," the search giant said in the blog post. "Duo takes the complexity out of video calling, so that you can be together in the moment wherever you are."

Duo has a very simple interface which fades away when you are in call, so it's just you and the person you are talking to.

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 roll-out has just begun, and the app is expected to be available worldwide in the next few days.
