Google launches Duo, a new video calling app for the Android and iOS platforms. The app offers simple one-to-one video calling, with an easy interface and call quality that adjusts automatically to changing network conditions.
Duo seamlessly switches between WiFi and mobile Internet without dropping your call, and offers a Knock Knock feature that lets you see live video of your caller before you answer.
We all know how it feels when a call fails to connect or when video gets choppy. We’ve built Duo to be fast and reliable, so that video calls connect quickly and work well even on slower networks. Call quality adjusts to changing network conditions to keep you connected — when bandwidth is limited, Duo will gracefully reduce the resolution to keep the call going smoothly. For video calls on the go, Duo will switch between Wi-Fi and cellular data automatically without dropping your call. You can start your call at home, and continue seamlessly even when you head out the door.
