Google Play Reviews

  1. Corey S-avatar

    Latest version not working for outgoing calls on my Galaxy S20. Not sure what was done but tried reinstalling the app. Clearing my cache and even resetting my network settings. Whenever I call anyone it just says immediately "person didn't answer". It only pops up the incoming call on the other end for about 1 second. The only way is to have them call me back to chat. Very annoying for someone who uses duo everyday. Please fix this Google!

  2. Alea Kuhfal-avatar

    android I started using the app recently with the last few days and highly dissatisfied. Everytime I receive a group chat invite I only get the option to "get duo" instead of being able to click on the notification and see/join group. The same thing occurs when an actual group call is being sent to me. I will get a notification for the call but instead of allowing me to join I get the option to either ignore the call or open duo. However when I open duo, it says group isn't existent. Wouldn't recommend.

  3. Travis Bleck-avatar

    windows Duo is a must-have for Android users. I have had iPhones with face time in the past and this app far exceeds it. better audio, better video, and does NOT drop the connection all the time. And a nice little fact is that you can DUO with people that have iPhones as long as they download the app as well.. Another quality product from Google.

  4. Mariah Woods-avatar

    ios I haven't had a problem until I updated my app and now whenever I call someone it will say the person didnt answer. I was sitting next to my friend and she wasnt on the phone or anything when i attempted to video call her on do it said "Vanessa didn't answer" but shes sitting right next to me it was working fine before.

  5. Rene' Jimerson-avatar

    wie viele teilnehmer This app used to work very well and I never had a problem. The last few days when I have tried to video call someone it shows a message "xxx did not answer". It doesn't even ring for a long time. The person ends up video calling me back. I ask them if the were notified of my call and they have reported that it is a short notification. I've removed the app and reinstalled it, made sure there were no updates, and my connections are fine. Is there another fix for this?

  6. Jeffrey Bernas-avatar

    gruppenanruf Someone called me using Duo. When I swiped to answer the call, it didn't answer. Instead, messages popped up asking me if I agree with the policies to use Duo. It said Google can record and use anything from the conversation. It left the option of either clicking that I Agree or not answering the call. Perhaps I misread or misunderstood, but I won't recommend this product until I get an answer. On the plus side, the picture and sound quality were great.

  7. Denise O'Neal-avatar

    kosten I love Duo! Quick and easy... calls and video are clear and video messages are fun with the special effects. No problems sending or receiving calls and messages. Better than Skype, Facebook and any other video messaging app I have ever tried! AND it's free!! Definitely a 5 star rating from me!

  8. Ian Walker-avatar

    web I have been using Google Duo for at least 3 years and honestly, this is the best Video chatting service out there in my opinion. However, ever since the update on 3/17, I have not been able to keep a drop down window open while using other apps. This may seem like a minor issue, but I've grown accustomed to having this feature for the past few years. Is this a feature that Google is ridding of? Please respond. Thank you!

  9. Gerri Lockwood-avatar

    videokonferenz I have Duo installed on my android and am attempting to use it on my computer once in a while. When someone calls, it rings on the phone but does not ring on the computer. There is no notification that someone is calling, nor is there any way that alerts me so I can press "answer" and pick up the call. I added duo into my notifications on the web browser as the HELP menu instructed with no luck. What do I do next?

  10. Bella Newlander-avatar

    Bella Newlander


    test I love Google Duo! This app has been helping me out with work and personal business communications throughout the day, much better than some other video call apps. The connection is always steady and strong, as long as I have a good WiFi. And I don't have to use my data. Thanks!

  11. Paulette Savage-avatar

    Paulette Savage


    Duo has been great to see my husband and family clearly. Once in awhile it would break down, but rarely. I had the Type A virus and was in ICU, isolation ward for 8 days. Having Duo helped me stay connected because no visitors were allowed from the beginning to the end of my hospital stay. Seeing my husband and other loved ones, kept me from feeling too alone. I saw friends and family from different states clearly too. Duo is great!

  12. Brian-avatar

    Can't remove from device. Thank you for your immediate reply. You have identified the source of my problem. I have a Google home app installed on my device that I didn't install and can't remove. This is not Duo's fault. Thank you for the article. PS: Any tips on how to remove a rogue G home app from a device would be greatly appreciated.

  13. Lily Carey-avatar

    This app is terrible. Everything is blurry, fuzzy, and there is almost never a good time to call someone because the calls don't go through. I'm definitely looking around to find a better app that gives me what I want. Please fix the quality, you say this app has good quality let me see it then. Prove to me that this app has good quality.

  14. Megan Price-avatar

    It doesn't let me join calls. Cleared cache, data, and did a fresh install with no luck. Just says no video. Tried on both data and WiFi. The other people in the group have no issues, they can see and hear each other. Group chat didn't work. One on one calls didn't work. Latest version installed. #SocialDistancing

  15. Jason Venable-avatar

    The video quality and cross platform support is great. With that said there are a few really annoying issues holding this back from a higher score as of the time writing this. 1) You can't seem to add/invite people to an ongoing call. You have to exit the call, create a new group with all people, and the call that group. Really?!? 2) If you have a group call going and it dwindles down to two people it cuts the screen in half for each user instead of full screen with the person you are talking with and small thumbnail for yourself. Fix these two issues and this will be a 5 star app.

  16. Jen H-avatar

    Omgsh why didnt I know about this app sooner!! This has great video and clear voice! 100 times better than messenger video calling!! Thanks to my kids for showing me this!! Im still learning some things but love the group chatting, especially during this horrible covid-19 virus quarantine! I can still keep in touch with my friends and talk to my kids who dont live at home anymore! Highly recommend to anyone who can use this app!

  17. Ali Ahsan-avatar

    Excellent but..when ever my friends call me. They say that it shows error. and when i recieve any calls or video call. It's for short notification. I can't even accept the call. It also shows small dialog saying "unexpected call" maybe..i don't remember that dialog exactly

  18. Cynthia Lee-avatar

    Works fine when only talking to one person. Tried a group chat for the first time yesterday with 6 people and everyone's screen kept moving around. My sister would appear in the upper right corner, then give seconds later her screen would pop in the lower middle square. It did this the entire duration of our video chat..but with everyone's screen. And it was happening on everyone's phone not just mine.

  19. Ms MRL-avatar

    Really enjoy this app!!! It would be 5 star if it were bitmoji compatible, and if the notifications weren't glitchy. There are times I won't receive a notification when someone leaves a message. It doesn't pop up until I open the app to make a call or text, then, i'll receive notifications for messages from the day before. By that time the message is old... Please fix, and you'll get 5 stars.

  20. Nandan Rao-avatar

    I have a one plus 7t and the app is quite a disaster. When connected with a Bluetooth device, if this app gets used, unable to use the tethered device for other apps. Have to restart my phone. Surprisingly not to Google standard of seamlessness. Another issue is when my iPad and 7t have been connected with same account, the app goes bonkers!!!

  21. Starr White-avatar

    One on the best ways to practice social distancing. The quality was great for the entire call! Thank you for great video quality. I was on one call for over an hour and it worked out great! I love the ability to use the app with my phone contacts and to ability to invite the contacts that do not have this app. Is is a great help since I did not have video capabilities on my phone. I love to have the ability to talk to friends and family anywhere. If you are wondering if its a good app, it is!

  22. S. L.-avatar

    For the most part this app is awesome, PLEASE get rid of whatever keeps my buttons lit up when in use! It drains batteries and is completely unnecessary. It's also high quality when on a smartphone...on a tablet, not so much. Audio is tinny and quality gets pixelly.

  23. Katy White-avatar

    This used to work great, but recently only one of my speakers will go out in the middle of a call. This happens only with Duo. I've tried reinstalling the app multiple times, closing out of the app and going back in. The only thing that temporarily fixes the issue is restarting my phone and it doesn't even fix it completely.

  24. Shamar Sanker-avatar

    Very good quality, I can talk with loved ones for hours without no interruptions. But there are times where it lags occasionly, but it's mainly a wifi problem not the APP. overall 5 out of 5! "DUO" is a great app to keep in contact with your friends and family. The cool thing about it is that its contented with Google so if you have all your contacts connected through Google you don't need to worry about finding that one person you want to video chat with. Hope you all enjoy this app.

  25. Reno Morrow-avatar

    I don't know why but Google Duo Preview is no longer an option in my Connected Apps in App Preview Messages. I really relied on that feature because I'm running Android Oreo Go Edition and I try to conserve as much storage space as possible. Now I'm being forced to install the entire Google Duo app which will use too much storage space. What can I do? For now I'm giving this one star but the video quality, connectivity and sound quality are actually great everybody.

  26. PIERINA RHODES-avatar

    I enjoyed using Duo and yes it has high quality visual reception. I do recommend anyone to try and use it. I did not download the App because of not havi g enough memory on phone but what I liked is that you can receive incoming video calls on the app without downloading. So Anyone who uses it and needs to do a video call with me I have them contact me.

  27. Kaitlyn Palatine-avatar

    This app used to work just fine for me and I don't know what happened since then or if it was an update but my camera has been stretched sideways. I've done everything to try to fix this issue; i have restarted the app, restarted my phone, and i tried deleting and re-downloading the app. Nothing has worked to fix this issue. I have an android and all my friends have iOS, and duo used to make things easier for us to be able to video call, but with this issue video chatting is not as easy.

  28. Krazy Keira-avatar

    I got this app, and every time i use it i cant here the person that i am trying to talk to. and a lot of times they cant hear me either. I gave it 2 stars becauase, yes you can see them and send messages, but there is not a point for the face call if u cant talk! This is not a good face call app. I would recomend if only used to message, but I personally would wrather use TextNow for messages if your phone is not on. If this was fixed i would give this a 5 star.

  29. Sufiyan .Challiwala-avatar

    Sufiyan .Challiwala


    This is a great video calling app and i use it for almost all calls. One thing i feel needs improvement is that it needs to add a widget or something for speed dialing chosen contacts. One click and voice call should be established. It will be very helpful to people like me who call selected numbers very frequently.

  30. Cheereo Bravo-avatar

    I LOVE Duo. It pretty much always works for me. And I barely ever have any connection issues unless I'm underground or somethin. The only reason I gave it a 4 and not 5 is because some features would be useful. Like a call log for recent and missed calls. Ability to record the video or take pics without the screen shot. That would be nice. Otherwise, great app. My "GO TO" video chat app.

  31. Tranquil Waters-avatar

    I'm so very grateful for Google's Duo phone Video service because I was able to connect with my daughter. During the Coronavirus outbreak, my daughter and I have been using DUO instead of Skype. There hasn't been any interruptions or dropped calls during our conversations. My daughter is now working 14-16 hour days at a hospital. My mind is at ease because I can see her face. THANK YOU GOOGLE FOR PROVIDING A WORRISOME MOM SOME PEACE OF MIND!!😘😷❤

  32. payash gaur-avatar

    The app is very good but it need some improvements like the number of members in the group video call can be increased and also we are not liking the feature of shuffling of images in the video call that feature is very irritating everyone in my contact is facing the same problem so I would highly recommend you should to do look into the matter and do something to cover the problem rest I'll say the app is good.

  33. Uncle Deuce-avatar

    That works fine, however I was wondering when making phone calls on my j7 Samsung if the calls are going out over Wi-Fi or regular phone and the same with the video is the video going over phone or over Wi-Fi? These are questions that I can't seem to find an answer to.

  34. Jacqueline Stankiewicz-avatar

    Jacqueline Stankiewicz


    I am very happy with this app. At this time in our lives when the world is fighting a ravishing virus, it is so nice that I can keep in touch with my family, and see the them in person. My husband and I are in the 70 year old age range and don't want to take any chances. My computer and cell phone already had this app installed when I got them, but I didn't use it because our family would come together on a regular bases. Life is different now. Although I found the app to a great asset, the only problem I found was the sound was not as great as I know it could be. There has to be a wee glitch to fix in the sound for this app to be five stars. So going forward, I am so glad I had this qpp. The sound has to be improved. That is all I would wish for. I thank you for the most helpful review for information. Jacqueline Stankiewicz

  35. Olivia J-avatar

    I had a very outdated version of the app on my LG phone which worked fine until I wanted to do group calls. So yesterday I updated it and the video quality got SIGNIFICANTLY worse. Before the update it was fine but now it looks like I'm recording myself on a 2014 ipod. Loved the app but am very disappointed with this.

  36. Stephanie Robertson-avatar

    Convenient way to see and talk to my spouse when we are away from one another. quality normally is great easy application to use. I'm able to talk to him wherever I am at any time of the day wherever we are in the world so it's like we are never apart. I love that it comes already on my phone and is easy to use.

    I have used Google Duo to keep in touch with my family during the current covid-19 crisis. As long as you have good WiFi it works extremely well. It's fast to install and easy to use. Best of all, it works on Apple phones. I was in a conversation with my sister then suddenly wanted a visual. She hung up, downloaded and installed Duo on her iPhone and we were back talking inside four minutes!

  38. Abeer Salama-avatar

    I have a problem today when I make a voice call or video call to someone it shows message (didn't answer) .. and appear notification to this person that I'll try to call him .. I don't know what's the problem my connection is very well and I have removed the app and installed again but the problem is still .. please help and I hope to fixed this problem in short time .. I can't do any call till now just only received.. and I'm annoyed about this.

    The app is just not working for me.. I am receiving no calls and I am able to make no calls. The other person whom I am trying to call is also facing the same issue. It says unexpected error when I try to pick up any call and when I try to call someone it says "Mr. A didn't answer". Please resolve this asap.

  40. Kyle Hall-avatar

    I. LOVE. DUO. This is a perfect video chatting app with ridiculously good quality. It doesn't matter what kind of phone you have, as long as it's a smart phone, lol, you can video chat with all your friends. I also really love that I can "leave" video messages for people as well as chat with up to like 8 people at once! Easy grab if you like to video chat and all your stupid friends have iPhones lol.

  41. june paul-avatar

    I used this at the behest of my friend ryan. It was already on my phone but i activated it and was very pleased with the quality of the video calling. Much cleaner than Facebook messenger and less jerky than the built in video phone capability. By far the best video call app ive ever used. Highly recommend this for this purpose

  42. Kelsie Hoffmann-avatar

    Kelsie Hoffmann


    It was good I was able to hear very well The screen was a little bit fuzzy we did get disconnection but not because of the phone because the internet connection but other than that I really do believe that this is a pretty good app I had way better video chats than I ever did with Skype or even on the iPhone so I think duo is actually the best app there is to actually be able to talk to someone face to face

  43. Hugh Hyatt-avatar

    Cannot install. Keeps telling me to turn off screen overlay in app settings, which I do, but the message reappears. Duo support suggestions were terrible, including broken links. I found a YouTube video that explains the problem & solution clearly & succinctly. Following those instructions allowed me to install successfully.

  44. Natalie Fedder-avatar

    Everything is good, although the sound cuts out very often and I don't get group call notifications until they are done talking. Other than that I have no problems with the app and hope you can try to improve it, to make the experience better for the people who downloaded it. Thanks, have a awesome day!

  45. A Google user-avatar

    I have been trying to call my kids and my other phone today, but I cannot use this app, I can only receive Calls but are not able to call others not even my other phone. This just happened. I have not changed anything on my phone, It's just that it stopped working. I have looked online to see how to fix it and could not find any help. I guess no more duo for me then since it's totally useless to me. Cannot use it. It's broken

  46. Brooke Cartwright-avatar

    This app is really easy to use after you figure it out. When I first got it I was not sure how to send messages, but all you have to do is click on the icon of the person you want to message then click notes on the bottom right hand corner! Both people have to have the app, but you can also invite people on your phone to use the app.

  47. Randall Pittman-avatar

    Randall Pittman


    By basically every account, this is facetime, but for Android. It even has the same logo. That being said, it works really well. The preview you get when a call comes in is nice, the video quality is usually good (enough) and if not, it usually fixes itself quickly. I would like it if more people were on it, or if it had a screen share feature, but it is unlikely someone uses it if you don't tell them about it, and I have yet to see a screen share. Overall, I recommend using it, 9/10

  48. Jean Redstone-avatar

    Handy for the self-isolating crowd. Talked with sisters and their voices, faces, came through clear, though colors a little "off". You can interact, laugh together, just like a real visit. I even showed sisses my sleeping dog and cats who were looking particularly comical. Only problem I had is it's a bit hard to figure out how to talk to more than one person in same call.

  49. Tina Work-avatar

    Good quality but lacks personality. I love that this app allows for video calling as well as individual video chat messages (think glide) but it lacks in allowing for creative personality. There are no filter or special effect options (think Snapchat or messenger) available, at least I am not seeing or able to get them.

  50. Tolu B-avatar

    I can't access my messages. I've been using this app since January 2020 to call Europe from the Middle East and it normally works well. It is often more reliable than using WhatsApp messenger or FB messenger to call. Recently though, I am unable to access messages friends leave me- it always says 'loading' but nothing loads up. I've tried alternating between using data and WiFi and I've also cleared my cache to see if it would solve the problem. Please find a resolution to this.

  51. Jes Harner-avatar

    A lot clearer than any other app. Used to use Facebook messenger for video chats and was amazed at the difference w this app being so much better, the picture quality is absolutely wonderful, I can see and hear the people I'm talking to and rarely is it choppy or glitchy- depending on the reception or wifi connection.. will continue using this app from now on as well as my loved ones! Thx!! UPDATE: used to be awesome now when making call or receiving one it just keeps saying "video loading"

    It's a really good app, but there are a few things that could be improved. 1 You could find a way to make it work without phone numbers 2 Sometimes the quality of the video makes it hard to see 3 Sometimes when I call someone I can hear my own voice, and it irritates me a little. Thank you for listening to my improvements, and I hope you make them 🙂

    My daughter and I use this to keep in touch with one another, and it is WONDERFUL. She has apple, I have Android, but we can speak and see one another with better picture and sound quality than FB Messenger! I absolutely love this, and am so grateful for Google Duo, helping me stay close to her. It's absolutely amazing. From the bottom of both of our hearts, thank you!!! -Chelsea and Clara

  54. Philip Starkey-avatar

    Doesn't respect do-not-disturb settings properly. If someone calls me through duo, the phone rings. I'm on a Google Pixel 2 so you would think Google would have this sorted but no. What a joke. Edit: I will report this issue as advised but searching online shows people have done this I'm the past and it is still not fixed. I'm not holding out much hope...

  55. Francis Moran-avatar

    Incredibly hit or miss. Have been using Duo for the last year or two, first on Pixel 3 XL now on a Pixel 4 XL. Both have had serious audio issues that come and go. On the Pixel 3 it was an echo. On the Pixel 4 the audio will randomly route through the ear piece instead of the speaker. Sometimes the audio toggles when I'm switching from WiFi to network. It's super annoying. WhatsApp never has these issues.

  56. Ahmad Ahnaf-avatar

    I really want to like this app. It have good features, like the low light mode. It works great. But it lacks some fundamental features that it shouldn't. If i made a voice call, i couldn't req for a vid call immediately. I had to end call and call again. If i was in a vid call, i can't change to fon call, and i can't temporarily turn off the camera if i need to. If the other side ends the call, there is no tone to indicates the call was ended. Minor features, but fundamentally important.

    I was using this application for almost 2 years and since the update that I have installed on the 20th of March my outgoing phone calls are not giving me any indication that it's ringing and it keeps saying no answer no answer it's really annoying I don't know what's going on people only see that I only missed their video call or voice call but no ringing whatsoever and this all happened after I did the update I'm disappointed so much since that's the only way I can contact my parents

  58. Sandra K-avatar

    Still asks for phone no, my mobile unable to receive certain networks, hence trying duo. Thanks for prompt response, however the new Duo isn't supposed to need a phone number but still asks for one so is there a different named version for use without phone no needed? If so, please point me to it as i'm using the latest one on play store...I thought that was supposed to be the latest version?

  59. Jess Jas3-avatar

    Barely works anymore. It's nice when it works although the video cuts in and out constantly. If it's the least bit cloudy outside there's pretty much no loading. Even when the weather is nice it still doesn't load the call half the time. That goes for incoming or outgoing calls. Wish it worked better cause i like using the app. Also if you call someone or vice versa, sometimes it doesn't let you know they even called until hours later when ur notified of a missed call..... Please fix the app!!!

    Loving Duo BUT... 1st prize for me would be that it also allow text messaging. The thing is, I end up using another messaging platform to make arrangements to have a Duo call. I guess, not having text messaging was carefully thought out, especially with platforms like Hangouts and Hangouts Chat out there. Anyway, the thing I love the MOST about Duo is that I get to use it from my Chromebook too!

    Use to use this all the time with the wife because she has apple. Everything was great! Always great picture and great sound. But this month we cant ever connect with each other! NEVER! Doesn't matter if we have full service or on wifi. Won't connect you hit answer and it loads for ever then hangs up. Really disappointed because this was promising for us seeing we had apple and android.

    Ugh. Duo is good when it works. I've updated the latest version and it sucks. Constantly freezing, choppy, the voice cuts out. The picture looks like an 8-bit video game. Left many bad ratings when prompted saying these things. Hope the developers notice and get this fixed.

  63. Jess Papagni-avatar

    I am in a long distance relationship and relay on this app constantly to talk to my SO. Very recently we have been having troubles connecting, I've tried restarting my phone and even uninstalling and reinstalling the app (it only sometimes works) . It's very frustrating to not be able to get in contact with loved ones. Please fix this 😭

  64. Shantel F-avatar

    Duo is awesome! Really good quality & simple to use! Only thing that is a con is the battery life on my phone goes down quite quickly, & I have a brand new phone so I'm assuming the app uses a lot battery life. My family uses this app frequently

  65. Alice Nzo-avatar

    Its a great app. I call my friends on it all the time. There no disturings. But somtime's glitched out. And somtimes it ends the call when your still talking. But out of all of that the app is great. And it also ask's questions like If the app is good so they can update ut i like the app and so does my friends but can you guys add this when your friend doenst answer can it call them after they get back on there phone that would be great... Thank you and I Love this app by the way.💕

  66. Lilibeth R.-avatar

    Best of both worlds! I liked Google Hangouts for its clean UI but the video is awful plus it's getting phased out. So then I switched to Facebook messenger which has great video but I don't like the UI with all the gadgets and games. Duo, which I accidentally discovered when using Google Assistant to video call my sister, is the best of both -- clean, simple UI with great video quality. It'll probably be my go-to from now on.

    Google Duo is a video chat program that works with several operating systems. There are occasional disruptions, but not sever enough to cause me to disregard this application. There is room for improvement as the video and audio stall and portions of both drop out. This program has great promise and I will continue using it.

  68. Romero Family-avatar

    Awesome!! ENCRYPTED live video calls with up to *9* people ACROSS PLATFORMS (Android to iPhone to PC to Mac)!! Yet, you can also create pre-recorded one minute "video text messages" (similar to the Marco Polo app--although MP lets you leave videos of unlimited length) which family/friends can (re)view at their leisure). Apply filters and draw on the video text messages (similar to snapchat) for more fun! IT'S GREAT! ☆☆☆☆☆

  69. Jeanette-avatar

    This app is amazing, especially during the pandemic. I am able to enjoy video calls with my mother, who I otherwise would not be able to see. The nice thing about this app is it works well between Android phones and iPhones.

  70. Anthony Kay-avatar

    Duo : 5 stars except 1st call attempt NEVER works "Duo preview" : 0 Stars Preview version is killing me. Features are limited Can't relocate your minimized screen Hangs up when you leave the app The 2 versions don't recognize each other so they will overlap each other's audio Then causes my device's service to get Tangled between the real duo and the preview version so my phone won't receive incoming calls after they get Tangled. 5star app as soon as yall get rid of the preview nonsense.

  71. Patrice Roland-avatar

    Experience was excellent. Picture was very clear. Sound was 100% I could even hear the stupid bird screaming in the background. The clarity of things that were in the back of the video feed was just fantastic. I would definitely recommend this app to all my friend.

  72. Tony Oneal-avatar

    It was great, but now my calls wont go out,, I can receive them and receive and send messages, but no video or voice calls outgoing.. I need this fixed ,,,, thanks for the fast email back,,, I have tried all of the above and still nothing, I even uninstalled it and re installed

  73. Monica Garcia-avatar

    This app is really useful. I can communicate with my friends and family. Although there is some lagging problems but its just my wifi. I also love how you can start a group chat! I do that alot when im bored and I want to talk with my friends this is a great app that is useful. I suggest if you are thinking about getting this app just do it you will be in for a treat.

    I switched from using Skype to Duo because Skype kept dropping the calls and the quality sucked. With Duo I can video call my daughter in Traverse City, Michigan (I am in Phoenix, AZ) and we can talk and see each other and we don't have to worry about it dropping the call or having any other problems, for that matter.

  75. Aaron Heins-avatar

    love it! it's great for us Android users bc we don't have FaceTime and this is going to be ours. it's in all phones when you download the app but it comes already installed with the new Galaxy S20's or later when the older Android's ie: S9's and so on. it may be on the S20's but not sure! I love it!

  76. Jessica B-avatar

    The video chat has been very clear. The only time I have had difficulties is when the person I am chatting with or I walk too far away from our wifi. Otherwise the volume and video has been great. Way better than other video chats I have tried in the past.

  77. Troy D-avatar

    It's a very good app but need work on like video quality is no as good as the rest of app on the market, I love how the app is simple but on the next hand I need to can reply to a chat message with out afto keep on going out and in of the chat to reply I should be able to reply to a message when it come in not only read it then come out of the chat reply then send it then back in the chat to see what the conversation was. Last it need two different colour to show send and receive chat.

    The perfect answer for checking in with my family and to reassure my granddaughter that our cats are fine. I will definitely recommend this to the rest of my family and to my friends. For the humor part, I rarely take selfies so the idea of a 2 or 3 minute selfie was a little weird... and, for any oldies wasn't there an episode on the jetsons about camera phones, or was that twilight zone. Again, thank you for the service.

  79. Steven Sims-avatar

    I've had duo for a couple years now it has all pressure served me well. I've got all my friends to download it I if they don't have it. I've tried other video callers but they just didn't measure up to the quality that duo brings. Good connections clear video no dropped calls or those videos lags where people doing like there being chopped and screwed it's the best out there you want the best then download duo and you will have the best

  80. Hi There-avatar

    Today was the first time I actually had a conversation! It was fantastic, other than the times when the screen froze. However, I was familiar with those spots in the house of the person I was speaking to and knew them as dead spots. The call froze for a moment, buy didn't drop. I can't wait to use it again!!!

    Very good quality of call and terrific connection. It doesnt have all the addiotional features like fb calls or snapchat calls like filters and sending pics. But the quality and connection are a million times better and that is the most important thing. Group video chats are a great feature I love on the app as well. I highly reccomend this app.

  82. Mauricio Santiago-avatar

    It's great. Only bad side I guess would be that a cellphone is required. Software wise it can easily be used via a google account, internet and a google speaker. Ultimately that is the reason I purchased a JBL link view... I can video chat with family instead of calling the house phone. It was either duo via that speaker or an echo view or even portal.

  83. llafox-avatar

    I've noticed that only iOS can pause video, and mine will pause randomly. (it seems to be happening when I flip the camera) and I have to hang up to fix it. theres supposed to be a button by the mute button, but there is not. even pressing in that area doesnt work. is this just happening because I'm in call with an iOS user, or is it something that needs to be fixed? other than that I dont have many problems with the app, but it could be so much better.

  84. Rod Jerome-avatar

    I gave it 5 stars because the video quality as well as the audio quality was next to perfect. I truly enjoy my video calls with duo. No problems. Even using Bluetooth headphones, everything is good. No issues at all, on either end of the calls.

  85. Ven L-avatar

    One trick pony, but does that trick well! Yes, Google's messaging apps are a hot mess, but Duo is delivering where Skype used to and WhatsApp / Facebook Messenger do badly. This just does video calls (and video messages), and does them very, very well. Far better than WhatsApp etc. You don't even need to link it to you Google account, you be called on it just using your mobile number, but if you do link Google you can also use it via browser. Allo & Hangouts might be nonsense but Duo is solid.

  86. Sheryl Good-avatar

    This is only my 2nd time using this application but there are no delays with voice or video quality and I am absolutely impressed at how well I can see the other side, not only their face but, specific items that I need to see in person. it's almost like I am a person

  87. Traci Welch-avatar

    It is really nice to have this option since Facetime is not an option on my phone. It works well once you are connected but I find the call/answer process a bit awkward at times. Worth it, though, especially now when we are being asked to stay away from others!

  88. S.K. MISHRA-avatar

    Google Duo is the highest quality video calling app*. It’s simple, reliable, and works on smartphones, tablets, Google Nest, and on the web. Features: Group Calling Bring together all the people who matter most, even when you're apart, with group calling. Duo now supports up to 8 people in a group video call. Make Calls Between Android and iOS Whether you’re on your phone, tablet, or on the web, you can stay in touch with Duo. Low Light Mode Duo lets you make video calls even in poor

  89. Mark Santiago-avatar

    Very good app, I give it 4 stars cause occasionally I am unable to see the person I'm talking with, other than that, great app, I love it, keeps me in video chats with my grandchildren who are over one thousand mile away from me. Keep up the good work

  90. Razor Spartan-avatar

    This is such a great app. I use it to talk to my sister and my niece all the time. Great for making memories and not missing out on many. Love it. If I didn't have this I would have not been able to connect to my family as much as I have been able to with this app. Ty duo <3

  91. Nazmul Hasan-avatar

    Call quality and voice quality is great. But one problem, video call does not work in background. I mean to say, if I click home during video call the camera turns of and sometimes the call cuts automaticly. This is a huge problem. Another problem is when I call someone, duo shows the video is visible in my device but the person does not get any calls at all. This is really annoying. I dont expect this kind of silly connection problem from google. Really disappointing

  92. Joshua Nickens-avatar

    Was working just fine before, but as of a couple of weeks ago, I can't connect to anyone that calls me. The calls come through like normal but when I answer it keeps ringing and never connects. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Note 9, Android 10.

  93. David Mierzwa-avatar

    Awesome doesn't screw up literally every 10 to 15 seconds like Facebook Messenger video chats. Which is atrocious garbage when compared to Google Duo! I have not had Google Duo lag or glitch out on me once since I started using it specifically because of the constant failure and irritations of Facebook Messenger being hot freaking garbage🙏💪😎

    Horrible now, it used to be great. I try to set it up on my new phone with the sms message and it says "Unable to send the request. Please check connection and try again". My mobile data and wifi are fine. Please fix this!!!

  95. Mayra Focht-avatar

    We are speaking with our children in the USA, NZ and Switzerland often and so far it works well. We are having some issues with using the Nest Hub Max and group Duo calls. Not quite sure how to do that, and it would be most helpful.

  96. Renee R-avatar

    Had problems running the app on a UMX lifeline phone with talk/text but no data (connected to wifi). Switched to my LG Aristo 3 connected to wifi only (not registered on any network) and it worked perfectly. I think the video and sound qualityis bettdr than skype. No glitchy pixelated images or robo sounds here!!

  97. Andrea Goodwin-avatar

    The audio is sometimes choppy, especially when both people say something at the same time. I don't know if that is because you're basically on a video conference using speakerphone. Still really like this app for keeping in touch with my daughter when she's away at college, or when one of us is travelling.

  98. ACQUAH EMMANUEL-avatar



    The call and video quality is really good, but now if I want to call, it tells me the person didn't answer and it will tell me to leave a voice note while the call I made didn't even goes through at all. Later the person whom I called that it didn't go through will tell me he miss my call, mean while the call didn't goes through at all and it really bad, more over you have to make the text note like what'sapp or messenger where they can me a free-fro of messages in it ascending other. Thanks.

  99. Mike Guion-avatar

    I'm used to seeing my daughter's family three to four times a week. With the new guidelines keeping us apart, it's great to still see their faces while we talk. Until this situation presented itself, I'd never used this device. It's definitely helped ease the frustration of being somewhat isolated in our new circumstance.

  100. Cassandra OFee-avatar

    MUCH CLEARER than either Skype or FB Messenger. Impressive and surprised. I thought that ALL video calls had echoes, glitches and regular call drops. DUO HAS NONE, or very little. It's a fabulous app, my partner is 2200mi away & we chat, each relaxing on our couches - YET feel like we spent 2 hours together. Sometimes, it's three! Kinda wish I could record video, but, still my preferred choice. The video VMmessaging is cute, 60 sec w effects, frames, etc. Those are savable, interestingly.
