    Google Duo's review

    Published: 2016-08-19, by .

    You can talk to iOS and Android users using your camera

    • Intuitive, clean, and organized UI
    • Multilanguage support
    • Not very heavy
    • Needs a semi-newer device to run
    • Decent video
    • Not a lot of customization options

    "Make free video calls"


    If there’s one word that can best describe this generation, it would be communication. With so many messaging apps and social networks available on mobile, it’s difficult not to keep in touch. Google Duo for your iOS or Android device lets you keep in touch with users on both platforms. You just install the app, open it up, register your phone number, select your contact, and start talking. If you’re receiving a call, you can see a live preview of who it is. You can also switch to your back camera to show what’s around you.


    Google Duo brings video messaging done right, with a solid, very intuitive one-touch design and controls. There’s also a huge list of non-English languages supported. This app also doesn’t weigh as much as you’d expect.


    On the iOS, you’ll need a much newer device to run smoothly, and on Android, a semi-newer device. Video stability is currently okay, but there aren’t a lot of customization options available, like custom ringtones or even to reject calls.
