Google at the I/O 2016 came up with two new Android apps – Allo and Duo. While Allo is an instant messaging app powered by artificial intelligence, Duo is a one-to-one video calling. The Duo app is available from the last couple of months whereas the Allo is rumored to be available starting from September 21st. The Google Duo doesn’t require Google account; it works with the mobile number. It is available in most of the countries including India, but not in China. If you used iPhone earlier, then the Google Duo works same as the Apple FaceTime.
It is downloaded by more than 5 million people in the first week itself. The app uses less bandwidth so that call quality will be better even with slow internet speeds. Just like any other video calling app, Google Duo should be installed on both the devices to make a call. The Knock Knock feature of the app shows the live video preview of the caller even before attending the video call. The feature can be enabled or disabled from the settings of the app and most importantly, the user on the other side should have your number saved as a contact to get a live preview.
Now the Google has updated the Duo app to the version 2.0.132882665.RC2_RC06. Though the update is said to fix bugs, we found a ‘not so big’ feature in the newly updated app. Earlier, the missed calls showed with a red mark without specifying the date or time of the call. In the updated app, we will get the day of that particular missed call. Apart from that, we haven’t found any other visual changes.
