Google Duo is one of those apps that can save your friendship or a relationship by working its magic. It allows you to make high-definition video calls with your significant other, friends or relatives. And what’s best, it’s really simple and works great. The interface allows you to see your contacts in circles and allows for an easy call switch. The video calls are of 720p HD quality, which is good enough for a great conversation, but also efficient. Google Duo has been optimized for low-bandwidth conditions or areas with a bad signal.
Your mom told you not to talk to strangers, and Google Duo agrees with their Knock-Knock feature. This one allows you to see a live preview of a person calling you, and help you decide whether to take the call or not. The boundaries are non-existent, because the app works on both Android and iOS, allowing you to talk to friends regardless of the device. The video can be automatically downgraded with their algorithm if it detects network problems. If video just isn’t an option for you, you can still do an audio-only call. You can be absolutely sure your conversation is private, as Google Duo has an encryption enabled by default. So why wait, give it a try!
