Google Duo is fast and reliable so that video calls connect quickly and work well even on slower networks.
Video calling is the best thing to being with someone in person, but too often it can be a frustrating or complicated experience. Google Duo, a simple 1-to-1 video calling app launched by Google for Android and iOS takes the complexity out of video calling so that you can be together in the moment wherever you are. You shouldn’t have to worry about whether your call will connect, or if your friend is using the same type of device as you are.
Duo is simple from start to finish. To get started, all you need is your phone number and you’ll be able to reach people in your phone’s contacts list. No separate account is required, so you can sign up in just a few steps.
Duo is fast and reliable so that video calls connect quickly and work well even on slower networks. For video calls on the go, Duo will switch between Wi-Fi and cellular data automatically without dropping your call.
To make calls feel more like an invitation rather than an interruption, Duo has a feature called Knock Knock which lets you see live video of your caller before you answer, giving you a sense of what they’re up to and why they want to chat.
Duo has been built with an emphasis on privacy and security, all Duo calls are end-to-end encrypted.
