New video calling app from Google has been released. It does not require any additional configurations, it just works based on the phone number. Quality seems to be very good. Hope it gets integrated with Android ni the future so we could directly video call straight from contacts.

Simple interface
Pick a loved one and jump right in, with a simple interface that brings video to the forefront.

High quality video

Video call all your friends across Android and iOS with just one simple app.

How is it not a deal? It's an app for free. Seems like a good deal to me... :{


​Because it's always been free. There's no deal here. Otherwise the whole appstore would be on hukd

cold. not a deal. should be moved to misc.
no idea why they didn't build this into the hangouts app which already does vid calls. and the idea of being able to see the caller before picking up is so dumb. I don't want the person im calling to know ive got my moobs out.

Google Allo will be out soon as well (for messaging) would be better if they were released as one app
#15
I thought Hangouts did video calling?
#16
so what's the difference between Hangouts and this?
#17
Also, how is call qualify compared to facetime? What about data usage? Any real world experience.. would appreciate some details.
#18

"You also allow Duo to periodically send your contacts to Google"

What exactly are they harvesting (name and numbers or everything in your Google contacts)?????

Used it today. My dad had a poor connection so hangouts had no video and voice was choppy. Duo had video (although was pixelated maybe 10% of the time) and audio with no drops. I only used Hangouts for video so have already uninstalled it.

That feature is called 'Knock Knock', you can easily turn it off in the settings.

Try We Chat then?, that's free video too, via either Telephone Number, OR We Chat I.D. :-)

I would have suggested Tango to you, but that's mainly via Telephone Number only ...

Facetime is Apple priority Software/Hardware right?.

Whereas this Google Duo App is not!.

Google Duo - The simple video calling app.

https://duo.google.com/

Being a form of 'Cross-Platform' App, it's therefore not restricted to just 1 priority Product/Hardware or whatever?, and in so doing, it therefore makes it a little bit more accessible to everyone. :-)

So the app knows which of your contacts are able to use it.

how you did that? just enter a correct number with start 7*******?
Google Duo saying: Unable to send the request. Please check the connection and try again. My mobile network is working fine and Wi-Fi as well. I really don't understand why not working?

It can do that simply by me allowing access to contacts. Question is, WHY does it SEND your contacts to Google?
