Google Duo So Far
Google Duo is now one of the highest quality video calling app for smartphones, tablets, and other devices. You can also use it via Google’s Chrome web browser on laptop or desktop computers.
Google Duo lets you make video calls in high definition and is optimized for low-bandwidth networks. Notably, the end-to-end encryption is enabled by default.
The app is based on your contacts list. It automatically switches between cellular networks and Wi-Fi. A “Knock Knock” feature allows you to see a live preview of the user who calls you before you answer. Google described such functionality, as “more like an invitation rather than an interruption.” Google Duo uses WaveNetEQ for packet loss concealment, a generative model based on Google/DeepMind AI’s WaveRNN.
You can quickly leave a message up to 30 seconds for the contacts who are unavailable. The messages can then be listened to by the other party, with the option of calling back.
Unlike Google Meet, Duo is a more consumer-focused and mobile-friendly app. You can download the Google Duo version 91.0.315322534 update using an APK file. Enjoy the app and explore great new features!
