How to use FaceTime rival Google Duo app for Video Calling

4 min read


Google Duo is some other video calling app seeking to claw its manner within the video calling space. It’s free to use and permits you to make one-on-one video calls to compete in opposition to the likes of FaceTime, WhatsApp, and Skype. The app’s USP is its simple and problem unfastened interface (no need to take into account login details). It also gives encrypted communication and other nifty capabilities together with Knock Knock. Google unveiled Duo at its Google I/O developer conference in 2016. The app is now to be had free of charge on each iOS and Android.

Here’s how Duo works click site, which includes a list of steps as to the way to get began with the app.

• Download the app to your iOS or Android device. Once installed, just conform to Google’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.

• Once all the above is done, enter your cellphone number. Google will then send you a one-time code via SMS, input the confirmation code received, simply supply the requisite permissions and you’re suitable to go! Something similar to how WhatsApp works – no login required.

• Now you’ll land at the app’s most important interface. You’ll see a display screen break up into two, with the pinnacle showing the digital camera’s field of view, while the bottom half has a large video calling button. You’ll be asked to give the app get admission to for your contacts when you first see this display screen.

• To begin creating a video call, just faucet on the video button which opens up your contacts. You also can ship invites or just faucet at the video name button to start the video chat session. Your pals or contacts will also need to put in Duo with a view to use the video calling feature.

• Once both parties have Duo installed, just tap the video call button which throws up your contacts, and then discover your friend and tap on his/her name to make the video name.

• When your friend solutions your call, you’ll see the video calling screen which shows anything your friend’s digital camera sees alongside with 5 buttons. These five buttons permit you to alternate the audio source, a button to exchange between your rear and dealing with cameras, a mute button, a button for your digicam view and the give up call button.

I did strive the app and was pleasantly surprised with the aid of its sincere and easy to use interface. The setup is a breeze, while the app seems fast, sensible and responsive. If you’d like to try Duo, head over to the download links here and here depending on whether or not you’re an Android or an iOS user.
