Great app by Google...but need improvements I downloaded this app as soon as google released it and had a great experience so far. Its a nice answer to Apple's FaceTime. I also faced some issues when I made a call using Bluetooth headset. I was able to hear their voice but they couldn't hear mine. Also, sometimes my friends tried to call me but all I got was a missed call notification rather than a ringtone. I hope google would fix these issues in the future updates. Nice job Google... Superb!
Excellent quality! But i have an issue (or is it according to specification?) 1) Connected to WiFi at home. 2) As soon as i open Duo, WiFi + LTE labels appear on my notification bar. 3) Make a Duo call no problems 4) End the call - WiFi + LTE label still present 5) Exit Dup - WiFi + LTE label still present 6) Close Duo from my recent apps tab - LTE label dissapears. Does Duo somehow use 4G while im using the application? Just wow
It's OK. But no-one will use it. Not much different from Hangouts, yet another app. Absolutely nobody I know is interested in this app. If they could somehow figure out how to disable WhatsApp, FaceTime and Facebook messenger, there would be a slim chance for this. Otherwise, it's now uninstalled. LG G3 Verizon MM. Marvelous
Great video calling app but needs better contact management Video calling is great and involves a simple, intuitive interface. However, the contacts management features within the app are basically nonexistent, which is unfortunate. If you have a contacts management app that will link with Duo (automatically open Duo and initiate a video call), then you are probably going to love Duo; I don't, so I “only” like it. Worth a go!
Well done Google - very pleased. I've been waiting for something like this for a long time. Excellent quality audio and video and reasonably stable (so far). Particularly good for using the back camera to show where you are and what's going on around you. Must have soon: 1) Alternative ringtones!! 2) A way of rejecting a video call with a (preset) messsage for environments that might not be appropriate to make a video call. 3) A way to leave a video message if the person you are calling can't/won't answer. Surprisingly
Needs some more work I have used Duo on three separate days for testing. The first time was in my apartment with my wife who was also in the apartment. Quality of video and sound was perfect. The next two times were with my mother who is in alabama. The video quality was great. The sound kept cutting in and out. The connection was weak. Obviously this is a new app but I just want the developers to be aware of issues. I would like to be apart of the beta if possible. Not bad
Simplicity of video chatting at it's finest. When google said that they were making Duo as their main video chat application, I was a bit skeptical at first. But after using it for a while, it's a actually very easy and intuitive to use. And best of all, living in Indonesia where the cell service isn't top notch, I still get decent video quality which is a sure plus! Superb!
Simple and beautiful! Okay, at first I was sceptical - nobody I knew was on Duo. No multiuser video and no web/tablet support. It seemed like such a step backwards from Hangouts and Skype. But after convincing two people to use it and trying it a few times, I'm sold. It's such a better experience - the video and audio quality is superb! It may take a while to get our parents to switch to Duo with their grandkids from their iPads and PCs, but we can get our friends to try Duo one video chat at a time! Fantastic
Excellent but facing issue I think this is a great app and much needed Google step taken. Just one issue though thus far, is that I'm unable to see the video of any iPhone users who call me or I call myself. Despite they have allowed the app access to their camera, they can see my (android) video perfectly fine but not the same the other way around. Maybe a bug? Brilliant
Excellent Loved d app, simple to use no need to login or create unnecessary accounts like skype n other apps...try to increase video quality...loved da option where you can use your rear or primary camera to show your home or surroundings n other things n watch all d expressions of d person u r talking to...just keep it simple n improve audio video quality...no need to put options like 'DP or Ringtones or Statuses, last seen all those bullshit things'. U can add Conference Calling where we can talk to 2 ppl or more. Perfect!
Perfect But is not as you said high quality on 3g. What are minimum internet speed for upload download to be able to receive HD video. Also i think that audio quality needs to be improved and also i miss the option to turn off camera, to turn off headphone, and ability to see missed calls. Also a littel information tab that the person who i'm calling that is watching me while calling him because i'm not sure that all of my contacts have my number on their contact list. And free invite via sms from google servers. Flawless
super simple the app wins award for being simple. however as a note, would love to have few options: 1. call reject msgs, 2. profile pic option, 3. audio only calls, 4. ringtone change option, 5. on screen buttons to be more transparent and or movable so they dont come in between video, 6. video msg option if call is not attended, 7. online offline status of the contacts Marvelous
Stunning It's a absolutely brilliant application, unless google uses it's poor force marketing tactics on this app, no one can beat it. It consumes far less memory; almost 1/6th-1/7th ram as compared to Skype or Even Hangouts. I think this is a modified version of Sony Ericsson's original video call app for java based phones back in the 2004-2005 so easy to use, which lately copied by Apple and named as FaceTime. Now again Google refurbished the concept with Google Duo. Excellent! Works great
I love it This app is pretty amazing. If only you could just add the video pop up while we are in the call and want to do other works. Like Skype does. It would be pretty amazing and a conference calls to. I'd suggest to do this app a default app for Android platform. Like face time in IOS. It's way better than that and with it too. Highly Recommend.
Tweak it Google!! I don't like the fact that the person on the other end can see much more than I am showing on my end. My screen should be more accurate about what the other party is seeing. Other than that, it's one of the nicer video chats. Not bloated like Tango or Viber. Would get a 5 if they fix the accuracy of they little circle display on my end. Great job
Better and Simple, needed Group Calling. Yes it's late from Google, but better late then never. Hangout was really old and needed this change. Other apps were not bad but, brand image is what we needed. So thank you Google for this. And 4 stars for this app because I hope to get group calling with this in next update.. Pretty good
Good, but could be better Compared to Viber in terms of data usage on mobile network connection and was disappointed, because Viber used about 2 times less traffic. Video quality was visually the same. Both app had "Save mobile data" option turned on. Also, the white bottom sheet used for starting call could be used during call to highlight face in case of dark environment. User could just pull it from the bottom of phone's screen during a call and it would make his visibility better for another participant. Enjoy it!

The best video call application ever Speed - lightning fast, Simplicity - crystal clear, Design - minimal, . Although i noticed some animation bugs when you pull up the contacts from the bottom. Groups calls should be enabled. Not sure if we need stickers and animation but it will be a good addition for next update, because you know, millenials. More integration with other Google Apps like 'Contacts'. But for now, this one is superb. PS , that knock knock thing is a breakthrough Awesome
Love the idea Great app! Video quality good! I wish the camera would stay focused better. I also wish my camera was a rectangle not a circle. Also noise cancellation still is an issue both hangouts and this. It just tries to cut out the conversation on the other end if some noise happens on my end. Very frustrating with two young kids. Worth it!
