Google Has Rolled Out Its Video Calling Application Called Duo for iOS and Android

Google had earlier announce that they are working on a video calling application that will be free, have user friendly user interface (UI). 

In my previous post, i talked about two new applications, Allo and Duo that was teased by Google at this year’s I/O developer conference in May read more here. While Allo is supposed to be Google’s new smart messaging application with an assistant built into it, Duo is a brand new one-on-one video calling app made to be used across Android and iOS.

Google has started running out its duo application to the public, its only available for download for some countries for now and other interested users from other country can preregister so as to be able to receive notification when they can download the application.

Duo is a 1 on 1, end-to-end encrypted, video chatting application that aims to make video calls as simple as possible. All you need is your telephone number to get started, and the app allows you to connect with people in your smartphone’s contacts list. Using the app, you can reach anyone else based solely on their number. The app is built to work even if you are on a slower network. It also switches between Wi-Fi and cellular data automatically without dropping your call. Duo can also automatically reduce video resolution so that your important personal and business interactions are never interrupted.

Further, the application has a feature called “knock-knock” that allows the recipient of the video call to see the person calling right from their lockscreen before even answering the call. Google says it “makes video calling more spontaneous and welcoming,” giving you a sense of what the caller is up to and why they want to chat. However, the knock-knock is an Android-only feature.
