Reviews From google play store

I want to like Duo. It's Google's only response to FaceTime, and I think Android users should have a way to video call with the same quality and finesse as FaceTime. Duo isn't anywhere close. Duo is clunky, unrefined, and buggy as all get-out. I consider myself a huge fan of Android and all things Google, but they've really dropped the ball on this, and it seems that nothing ever changes with each update to Duo. I wish they'd fix it, rather than add filters to try to imitate Snapchat.


What a surprise!! Really just like being in the room with someone. Better than a text... Better than a regular phone call when you just want to speak to somebody for a few minutes. If it's somebody you really like, you can see them and be happy. Singular problem: if you look at the phone camera you can't see them. if you look at the person you're speaking to, you and they are both looking down. I'll work it out. And I bet that Google, Lenovo, Samsung, Apple and everybody else will, too.


There has been improvement over the past year and the quality is better. During the call we did experience freeze frames and a little distorted/delay in video and audio. I would rate the app at about 80 out of 100, it's great for a face to face with people who are in the network.


The video quality was great, I just started using it, and now it's the only way I call my family. The only problem I've had with it so far is that the effects and filters won't load. It's not a big deal for me, but the fact that the option is there and I can't use them is a slight bummer, like dangling a treat in front of a dog and not giving it to him. Otherwise I'd say 5 stars


The app would have been better if video and audio quality were better. If messaging is included in the same app, that would make it more appealing to users and attract more ppl to use it. For now I have to use hangout for messaging and duo for video call. This app can help making WhatsApp the monopoly in the market..


We live in a very rural area with very poor cell coverage. When I'm outside my wife can call me and my children always access to me over WIFI. I have been using it for 2 years now and I am SUPER pleased with its performance. For a free app you cannot get any better. On the other hand I have not tried a "pay for app" and why would i? This app is perfect for me.


It's very good overall. Video calling works fine. But I found a serious bug. After you make a video call and close the app, if u restart the phone, screens of previous call (not just one call) pop up into the place where u can see currently running apps. It happened a lot of times. I don't know if this is a security or privacy issue, but it needs to be resolved soon. Please take it seriously Google.


Great app for video calling.. If you a have good internet connection the video calls will be super clear, HD quality. I love using this app to call my nieces and nephews and the love of my life, my girlfriend, I get to see them anytime I want no matter where I'm at as long as I have an internet connection.. Thank God for that and thank Google for that also, God bless you all and God Bless America.


Picture was clear. Like that I can switch front to back view. Use it lot and I would of gave it 5 stars but the one thing that bothers me is the delay when I'm talking. Gets very annoying. I've bought a brand new phone, I've switched services recently and still does it. Other than that 👍👍


sometimes the cell phone signal isn't so great where I live but I've got an excellent Wi-Fi running through the house so I use duo quite often. The quality is outstanding on voice and video calls. I highly recommend it.


I would love to see a text messaging client added to Google Duo. Google Duo is end to end encrypted and offers all the filter features that users already use in other applications like iMessage and Snapchat. Now with the Google Messages app offering RCS, why couldn't we have the instant messaging capability added to Google Duo with fallback to RCS/SMS if the recipient is not on Google Duo; similar to how Apple handles iMessage. With Google Duo already being available on every platform


Sick quality. No frills video conference app and it is great with the pixel line of phones and Google home devices that have screens. It makes quick video calls a breeze and is answered on the other end is as a simple phone call notification. It also works on multiple devices, so if you have a tablet and phone, just choose which to answer on. Mid-call device switching is not possible that I know of. Just hang up and call again on alt device. ***Hint - Feature request*** Overall I Love it!


I have an android phone and google duo always drops my call. ALWAYS. Meanwhile, the rest of my family has iPhones and the app works perfectly. So thanks google...your app SUCKS for the android OS but you've succeeded in creating a great alternative to FaceTime even though ios doesn't need this app and Android does. Will have to rely on another developer to provide a group video chat because Google Duo is an absolute FAIL for android


Great clear video and the sound is great as well. Didn't know this was an option because my grandbaby doesn't have Facebook so FaceTiming wasn't happening with him. But it's great he loves it and I love it.


This app is not working in my mobile. Whenever i enter the login details, It's showing "unable to send the request. Please check the connection and try again.", Even though I have a proper internet connection, it is showing the same. I have contacted the Google team, It's very bad that Google is unable to solve my issue.


Updated Review: I have had this app since day one. It was a new technology and very few phone or providers had the equipement make it work as intended. Now move forward several years and with todays equipment and providers this app has blossomed into an almost necessity with keeping in contact with family and friends. The perfect response to Apple's Facetime. And much better video quality that Whatsapp. 1 issues, filters have not worked since being added, just spins never loads.


Not too shabby, voice and video are always clear and without any lag, it does have its flaws like...doesn't always inform you when someone is voice/video calling you. So get the missed duo notification quite a bit. Can't use your flashlight and Video at the same time. Could have used some features with it too as this has none....


Duo is like FaceTime for Android... But on both Android and iOS. It's clean, simple, and just works. The features it has are strong and I like how the team keeps adding useful ones over time without trying to be loaded with unnecessary features just to claim it has them. Being on Android and having friends with iPhones, this app has helped communicate with them immensely.


Duo hasn't connected in weeks. This is an issue on both of my phones and my tablet, so it isn't the device. Incoming video call alerts work, but when I answer, it will not connect the call. The screen just shows the loading status, and never connects. There are no settings or troubleshooting options. Due to business obligations, our family is 3,000 miles apart for the next year, so we've relied on Duo. Extremely disappointing!


I love the edit/filter options and the ability to leave a video voice mail. I have never had any issues with Duo. One thing I would like to see is being able to use Duo to call someone instead of using video chat like we were once able to do centuries ago and be able to share media while on a video call instead of sending thru Google Messages app or some other companies software.


This started out being a great app for video calls. The picture was high quality and I like the fact that one can use this on both android and apple. I don't know what happen but now whenever I make a call or receive a call I can barely hear the person talking on the other end. I saw where someone else is having the same issue I am having. Sent an email regarding the issue but no answer. This product would be great if you fix this issue.


This has great quality. the reason why I like this app is because you can just type in the phone number and I had to add a contact and they used to contact as a resource of for the phone numbers and it's a great app for video chatting and having fun with your friends. I hope whoever uses this app has a great time of that like I am and I am I want to let everybody know that this app is appropriate for all ages and it's very fun and nothing bad happens on a Google do I was very appropriate for age


The app is WONDERFUL! It tells you when you phone is about to dye and ask you if you want to hang up the call or not. It also let's you join call so you can talk to a lot of your friends at the same time. I like to talk to my friend nataly while playing roblox so it delightful that it let's you go to different apps while talking to your friends. This app is not like one of those apps that you just get on and then talk to random people so I really recommend this for children.


Love it!! Makes being in many places possible, . From stuff errands to vacations, relatives without travel, and events without tickets. It has saved many days I couldn't be home to show my wife important service things or gather stuff to send me away from home on business. Cant say enough and its FREE!! HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE THAT!!


It's a great app for video calls with my kids. Never have any issues or frustrations. Most importantly I am able to see my kids every night before they good to bed, during the days of the week that I am away , which makes those nights alot less stressful and puts my mind and heart in a peaceful and comforting state............. THANKS DUO!


Would get a 5 star me and my husband use this app all the time sometimes it lags. And it also does not ring or pop up on your screen when someone is calling. My phone does nothing and I'll get a call from my husband wondering what's going on and then when I hang up to actually use the app and that's when my notifications let me know I missed a call when my phone never rang.


I used the application to video call my daughter on her i-phone, after she downloaded the application on her i-phone and the video and call quality was good. Of course we did not use the data saver option in the setting. I would say that the video and call quality while using the application is as good as the i-phone version.


Been using this app daily for 6months now( as it is the only video caller i can find for my phone provider so far). However, often glitchy, freezes up constantly, and seems worse every day. Always "reconnecting" whether i am using my own personal data or wifi it doesnt seem to make a difference in quality of use. I am highly dissapointed in this app. Unfortunately its my only option at the moment. Im hoping something can be fixed to resolve its issue.😔 Video messages are a nice opt. though.


Very good, only had probs connecting a couple of times, most likely due to poor signal. Love being able to do this! I get to talk with my daughters and grandkids, who live 900 miles away... Need best thing to being there! Will have to try with my son's next , they're over 2000 miles away.. thank you,


Me and my husband just started using duo and he has a iphone and has filyers and effects and i have a andriod (it was already downloaded on my phone when i got it) but i dont have the option for effects or filters am i just missing something or do androids not get to use effects and filters??? Please answer back please!!!!! Its totally not fair. I would give it 5 stars if i could use effects and filters like he can....


I loved duo and ill rate it 2 stars for the past good experiences ive had, but im this close to just giving it a 1 star. For the past week this app has been closing on me in the middle of my videochat and it won't even load my screen which is extremely annoying. I love duo, but at this rate i better start looking for a new app!


Often the calls do not go through. I will just get a message saying that I missed a call. Then if the person calls me again, it still doesn't come to me and it says that I missed the call. It doesn't make sense. The call quality when it connects is much better than Hangouts, but the unreliability of the calls is maddening. From my experience, in cases where the other person knows the call is coming and is waiting for it, the success rate on the first call is less than 50%.


I realized that when you are around a lot of other electronic devices for example TVs routers computers modems sometimes will interfere with the feed between you and the other party especially if you're walking around and through the frequencies


I would have given this app a 5-star review if there was a way to check settings. Not sure why but for some reason my granddaughters incoming calls do not alert me when she calls. I love being able to see my family members, the app is easy to use and alerts you when someone downloads the app that you know.


Duo is a great App and I love using it. But Developer, I've had a problem with Duo once and maybe a couple times. But Developer, when I was Group Video Chatting with my friends, my Phone was dying and I was still trying to chat with my friends for a while. I put the Battery Saver on, and it started lagging and then I disconnected. Duo has been just lagging too actually. Plus, I would also like so more settings in the App, maybe one like how to change the Video Resolution. Please fix this.


So far so good. We only have been using this for 2 days in a row now and it works perfectly fine. The quality of the video and sound is great. It's amazingly clear. I only rate this 4 stars because I still don't know the other features of the app but all in all, very good. I'll try to update my review soon.


Never had a problem with the app. It's amazing to mingle with iOS and android at the same time! Only thing that sucks is the app wont tell you if your recipient has Duo or not downloaded so you could be calling your friend/family thinking they have duo downloaded when they dont


When person says anything while he records his action for that some not showing it is repeated or not just get the thing. While you get the thing to face then you will skip the reason. That I don't like it while doing Tech solutions made for record only not to share, I know how to share a unknown person. while if the person doing anything don't distract him.


It's a very good application but i am having some issues about inviting people to join Google duo application. I invited 5-6 people to google duo but as per google duo offer for inviting people i didn't receive any reward i have sent an e mail also but didn't get any reply from you. Please review it as soon as possible.


Fantastic great clarity best one yet so easy to use and contact friends and family Great job Google I'll continue this a app until Google comes out with a better one but for now this is a real fantastic app so hope everyone uses it I've connected the most my family so far and they all seem to be extremely happy with this. Also you don't have to be connected to other applications to be able to use this duo. So introduce it and share it on all the other platforms as well hope everybody Enjoys it


This Google Duo is fantastic yes like second best champion of the world except yet one thing the video calls should be able to be made without membership because it should be more like the Payphone on the street you call them they either answer or they don't but yet Google Duo blocks a lot of cell calls around the world that does not have a membership with Google Duo and it shouldn't be that way because yet it should be like the pay phone on the street more direct to any phone in the world.


This is a great app for making calls and sending messages. I like that you can either send a voice or video message to others but it would make it much better if I can also send text messages to others from the app. Maybe add that to the future update of the app? Thanks.


i love using Duo. i am able to visit with my grandkids on a daily basis. it is so easy to use, my 6 ear old granddaughter calls me daily. sometimes several times. i am able to use it anywhere i am and i highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in contact with friends and family.


Is anyone else having this problem? I have android phone and the Duo filters have never popped up on my video message screen. I have uninstall to reninstall it, I have made sure its updated as well as my phone is updated as well but still have no options for the filters. Fiancee has iphone and didnt even know about the filter options until he sent me one


Google duo is great, the call are high quality, but only if you have good connection. But appart from that the app is really good. The UI is easy to use. The calls are good and the volume of the calls is good to. All around a good app for free video calling.


Won't connect. Was working fine until about a week ago. Showed someone is dialing and disappears. When calling out, disappears as soon as I press video call and says they didn't answer. I've cleared cache and uninstalled and reinstalled. Still can't use.


(I am using a Note 8 for reference) I really like this video chat app. The sound and images are really good. I know they've started adding filters and effects. I love leaving messages using the video effects especially. Can't wait for more!


I have Samsung S10e model and in my mobile I am facing below issue When video call is ongoing in notification Google Duo comes up. Now on clearing notification, Google Duo's ongoing video call will get disconnected. Similar kind of issue is not observed in other phone. Developer's team can you please confirm is it a feature or an issue.


Great app, brief pixelated moments with a bit of lag when long distance video call between Queensland, Australia to Adelaide, South Australia and that's with a premium carrier over 2400 km apart but overall not much really to complain about also quite good on the data usage I think. Awesome!


On 11/3/19 some one commented on the app having very low volume. Yes, this app is garbage if you need to buy [hearing aids] to use. And yes the volume is far inferior to other products on the market. I use one of the loudest phones in production. Sad!


Cons:It always freezes on video chat,voices sound robotic or choppy and cut in and out,its take awhile sometimes to call cuz it keeps saying dialing but isnt goin through, it always ask how was your call good or bad I mainly say bad rather then good n guess what they still havent fixed the problems even after I tell them why the low rating Pros:I can talk to people who are iPhone users on video chat as long as the download the app


This app is great! I use it almost every day. But I dont know if it is a glitch or if this is supposed to happen. Whenever I get off of the video and get back on it says my camera has stopped working. It might be something wrong with my phone. But it still deserves 5 stars!


Duo is a very versatile app. It allows me to not only describe a situation to someone on the other end of the line, but it allows me to show them what I'm talkin about. It also allows me to see my grandkids when I'm not around and I'm a truck driver!


Brilliant especially in wifi..... Crystal clear sound and pic quality.... no broken links. Nearly real time....... This can be used for business meetings, interviews as well. Excellent app. But needs good connectivity..... Keep it up Google 👍👍


Basic and it simply works, I have a Google phone and the app works flawless on it, I'm guessing most people who have trouble either have an older device or a lower quality device, as with anything quality matters and people who get stuff for free always expect more.


Hate the new option of video chat even without Duo. It's intrusive. If I wanted video calls, I would download the Duo app. And you don't even have an easy solution for disabling this feature. I shouldn't have to be bothered with deleting this just because I've signed up for other Google services.


Smooth and clear quality and easy to use. My family was able to call us from looking at the lights on Michigan Avenue, while I was sitting at home with our new baby. No loss of connectivity or loss of quality!


My friend told me about DUO so I tried it with him and it was good. I added more friends and it works great. Very clear and the audio is good also. I have an Android phone Samsung Galaxy 8 and to me the DUO app is much easier to use and better than facetime on the iPhones.


I love Google Duo and honestly the quality and the flow is usually steady I would really want to chat or texting my precious love, my ultimate partner in life for millennia within the same app but I won't complain and to be honest Google is my favourite when it comes to technology and Google Home & Assistant is immensely genius I wish to one day see Google develop hardware as state of the art capacity running it's centralised software, apps and SaaS...


Excellent picture quality. Sound quality also good. Could not understand the difference between light and dark modes well. The pixels on video call does not break, unlike other video calling apps. Can improve on contrast and brightness of the picture, perhaps.


i'm currently on Android 10 Beta version (Asus Zenfone 5z) and i'm facing lot of peculiar issues.....like echo and i'm able to hear what i speak.... even the person on the other side of the call also complains the same..... everything one fine when i was on Android Pie....but these started after upgrading to Android 10 beta....... please fix the issues.


I love video Duo I get to spend so much time with my brother and they letting me know that he's okay and that he's going to be able to see me on my birthday and also it shows clear and it's very nice and I just gave it five stars because I get to spend every last minute of my time with my brother and it will show you when someone is called you or when you miss the video call it'll give you a chance to read video call them it is just amazing download video Duo it is the most best app ever🥰🥰😊


Oh my gohd, I was able to see my best friend clear as day!!!!!!!!! This is the most amazing app ever because you don't even need a Google phone to use it well and if they don't answer you can send a video message which is like a video voice mail. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟


One needs a good average net speed. Fluctuations in network disturbs alot. Video quality remain good till the time call is connected. If once your connection get disturbed, don't wait for reconnection, cut the call and call again.


My husband works out of state every other week, this app is our favorite way of staying in contact with each other. Thank you so much! ( Only reason I didn't give a 5 is because we do have connection issues occasionally.)


Good service, quality at first was meh, choppy, but it corrected itself and was better. Its excellent for talking with non local family so everyone can see each other. Kids really enjoy seeing out of state family and talking in real time. We enjoy it and it does what we need when we need it.


So far i like it. If it really is end to end encryption. What feature does it need? 1. We would like to see added to tne app an encrptyion that the apps on the phonr csnt record resrnd youre discussion to google or anyone else. You cant turn them off i settings.


the voice volumes are maintained. in another popular app the voice was loud on one side but low in other due to some app issues. voice is more important than video quality, duo prioritizes voice quality i feel and as such the experience with duo is better than others.


Sometimes my calls don't go through at all. I have to uninstall and reinstall the app at least once every couple of months. Other than that its the only facetime app for androids and I enjoy being able to talk to my family and friends while I'm at college.


When you can't be face to face, Google Duo is a big plus! It can't be helped, but I wish the camera could be where the eyes are on the screen -- then Duo would be perfect!


A little choppy at times, but likely due to connection. Seems to switch back and forth between WiFi and data too easily. Nothing major. Really like the app.


Been with apple since the first iPhone. Just switched to Samsung galaxy note 10 plus. I loved apple's facetime when I would talk to family. Using Google duo is Great and I dont even miss apple or apple's facetime. Outstanding app. Also my family members call me on duo even on their iphones. Not one beat missed!!!


When the app says it could make other apps misbehave it does do just that. Not to mention the clear video they say you'll get, not a chace unless you don't mind freeze frame... My phone has not been the same since i installed it. I uninstalled after tree days.


Didn't get the filter option or encryption option even after updation in my device. Moreover, the user can be given a notification if the recipient is online or not. Emojis can be made active during the video call.


Extremely easy, very reliable! I would give it a 5 but it uses data LOL! Everything does though. Really its a 5 Star app. I live out in the country though, so im giving it a FIRM 4 and 1/2 Stars. Highly recommended!!!


This app was working perfectly fine until the last update. There is no dialing tone when audio calling a contact. Which is annoying since I can't tell if the call has gone through or not until the person I've called starts to speak.


I absolutely LOVE this app. The sound quality & video quality are as close to perfect as it gets. Minimum pausing or blackouts separate this video chatting apps from the rest. I highly recommend Duo!!


Explain the users what type of bug is identified and what are the changes made to fix it. If this types of explanation are given to the users that may bring high hope on the app and it's rate of users can be increased accordingly. I hope that you may read this comment if the comment is noticed as a acceptable point you might take action regarding this comment and it might personally bring me a great help full too.


Great app. Excellent way to see my grandkids when im not around. And talk to and see my grandmother 2000 miles away. Makes me feel like were not so far away from each other. And its so easy i taught her and my grandpa how to use in minutes.


Great, can call anyone as long as they have duo and are your friend but it is awesome I love this it is on of the best things but there is one thing I don't like about it is that you can't have face filters while video chatting.


Clear video, and easy to set up. Only wish there was a way to use gmail instead of phone number to call people. You may or may not want someone you video call to have your phone number.


Clear visual connection. Audio good also. Makes me happy when I'm able to speak with my family and see them clearly. Especially when I am using an Android phone and they have smart phones. 5 stars!


whenever I go to answer, I keep hearing this weird sound I've never heard using this before, and when someone else answers that sound keeps up. This needs to be fixed


Great app! Calls are clear always. You can use the video calling or voice calling option. Can be used with iPhone users along with Android devices. Much better than Skype, Facebook calling!


Very clear and good quality video call ..but some time its taking time while connecting call. Kindly fix it. One thing more. before it was good in calling without vpn.. now its not connecting without vpn. Kindly resolve this issue also.. overall its good. Thankyou


Perfect for andriod users like me. Since I don't have an iphone, i had to find another way to video chat with my friends. Google duo is the easiest way since it already has your google account connected to it which is just cool.


The video quality is very good, although there is a green light that flashes sometimes. Unsure about why that may be. Also, it does cut out a little bit and my voice would echo. All in all I still feel that it is worry using. Thank You.


The call quality is always great and it's very easy to use. I like that I'm able to move the smaller video (my video, although they can be swapped) around if its blocking something in the feed.


This app is so great for calls. Voice is so much clearer than cellular calls. The only problem is the connection is very volatile even walking through my house will cause connection issues. Hope they can figure this out. This doesn't happen on FaceTime or wifi calls.


Big overheating issue. My phone overheats a lot while im using google due, which is a problem as i work on the road and it the only time i can talk to my girlfriend while im away. I absolutly love the app just please fix the overheating issue


Great video and audio quality that is complemented with a noise filtering software. I just wish there was an option to switch from an audio call to a video call without hanging up.


I actually enjoy it it's one of the best video great quality it's perfect Google could have done it any better I would add a couple features to it but it's excellent this is something that everybody should have on their phone to be able to communicate with family members friends and everything great job Google


The reception from his phone was the one that was bad he can see me perfectly I could see my screen perfectly but every time he moved his whole screen and everything would be disruptive, but it's awesome it's only my second video chat and show a RV for sale really cool


Easy to use. I love how I can use it to call my Google Home! Very easy to set up and get going. Great for business and personal use!


Problem is that.. 1 thing= Last Seen. 2 thing=Online... 3= chat.. Msg.. Video sending... 4.. Stuck in video.. And break voice... Sometimes need off camre during video call... But no options...


Video quality is really good! Only problem I get is that sometimes I don't receive calls. But when I plan it out to talk to someone before (through a messenger) Duo has been the best one, and I tried many!


So far it's been an amazing app. Definitely better than Facebook video chat and that's a big plus for me, since 3 of my kids live in different places. This app gives me the ability to talk to them and be able to see them face to face. Love it 💖💖💖💯👊


Works easily and without trouble for me. Make sure you make your duo contacts while you still have cell service because you can't easily make new contacts with just wifi. Once your duo contact is in your directory though, wifi alone is enough.


This app is amazing. your contacts are instantly on Google duos. The quality is very good and you can also easily invite people to join you on google duo's. I recommend everybody to get this video call app.


I have had some issues with duo in the past. But I but I think it's doing a bit better now. Would recommend this app to talk to people to my friends and family. It's also good for networking.
