Google Duo, the 1-to-1 video calling app which the search engine giant showed off at Google I/O 2016 has been released for both iOS and Android.

Google Duo Arrives For iOS & Android – Will Roll Out Worldwide In The Days To Come

When it comes to video calling, Google has tried a number of times to make its formula work. But so far, the company has managed to ruffle a few feathers if not more. But at Google I/O 2016 it was fairly evident that the company has figured out how to make things work, and hence Duo’s foundation was laid down, with the company promising to release the app to the public during Summer time.

Fast forward to today and Google Duo app for iOS, Android is finally available for download. And as you’d expect, it’s absolutely free.

Video calling is the next best thing to being with someone in person, but too often it can be a frustrating or complicated experience. You shouldn’t have to worry about whether your call will connect, or if your friend is using the same type of device as you are. It’s no wonder that nearly half of us never make video calls on mobile*.

Today, we’re releasing Google Duo — a simple 1-to-1 video calling app available for Android and iOS. Duo takes the complexity out of video calling, so that you can be together in the moment wherever you are.

Google Duo is packed with a lot of fun features that make video calling a worthwhile experience. For instance, Knock Knock gives you a glimpse of the caller even before you pick up the call so you know exactly what sort of situation you’ll be dealing with. Furthermore, things go straight through the roof when you realize Duo offers brilliant video quality that adjusts itself even on slower networks (WiFi and cellular both).

Those who are into privacy a lot will be pleased to learn that calls are end-to-end encrypted. This means no one will be able to trace down your bad joke. So we’ll give Google a double thumbs up on that.

Where To Download Google Duo

As we mentioned above, Google Duo is available for free on both iOS and Android. But do keep in mind it might not be available in your region as the rollout is gradual. Give it a few days and everything will be there for you to try out.
