    Let's me connect to all my iPhone and Android friends and family at once. Great video and audio quality. The quality comes at a bit of a price when it comes to battery life, but I'm at home on WiFi and can easily plug in 90% of the time I use it. The message feature is fun, and keeps things to a minute recording so folks don't feel obligated to come up with something prepared to say. Overall, I dig it.

  2. Melissa Craft-avatar

    android It was ok. It randomly hangs up on me and friends and it's annoying. This app takes all your battery like that. It usually takes a couple of hours for my phone to die. This app makes my phone die on an hour, and I would appreciate if you could make it to where it doesn't take so much battery. And when I get on the app the video is barely recognizable unless your in great light. Even in great lighting, it showed my face As it was black and my friend couldn't understand what I was showing her.

  3. Neil Butler-avatar

    windows Used to be pretty good but it's gone downhill. The first 5/10 minutes of a video call are fine, but after that the sound and video go out of sync. That's then followed by the sound and video frequently breaking up to the point that I have to just end the call. REPLY: That's the sort of response I would expect about 15 years ago! Wi-Fi connection and speed are fine, and I'm 2 metres away from my router when making calls.

    ios Excellent quality, duration, and connection. I couldn't praise this app more. I have a head prayer trio, that need to be able to reach each other at a moments notice. Thus far, no matter where we are, the quality of color as well as audio is great, the speed for connect depends solely on the people connecting, nor does it matter (thus far) how long we're connected, we're not disconnected for duration like other apps, and buffering quality is superb. There's absolutely no comments here.

    wie viele teilnehmer I have never been able to get Google Duo app on my Samsung Chromebook to work correctly. The app will open up properly, but when you atempt to make a call, it will dial the other party, but not connect. If I try to answer a call, it will not connect. The only way I have been able to use Google Duo on my Chromebook is through the Chrome browser, but the quality is not that great.

  6. Diogo Matos-avatar

    gruppenanruf On my phone, this app has proven to be completely unusable, even after trying every troubleshooting method I could find online. When I try to set up Duo with my phone number I keep getting the message: "Unable to send request. Please check the connection and try again" even though I have in fact an internet connection and a connection to the mobile network. I even tried using mobile data but nothing. I really enjoyed using Duo on my previous phone but now I can't, I'm deeply disappointed.

  7. Zoey Young-avatar

    kosten I think this app is great! You video call people and can send them video messages, notes (basically text messages), photos, and voice messages. You can also voice call. Another good thing is that you can only video call your contacts, so this app is pretty private. I don't think you'll have random people calling you. I would definitely recommend Duo.

  8. Ali Al Zuhair-avatar

    web Great video and audio quality! It is my go-to app for video calling. However, there might be two downsides: 1. During an audio or video call via Duo, the call gets interrupted when I receive a call on my number. Duo gets frozen from the audience's side. And I lose audio as the phone is still ringing, and Duo gets disconnected if I answered the call. 2. Enhance the web based video quality and allow group chat calls just like the app. Or even better, make a desktop app version.

  9. J D-avatar

    videokonferenz Constant trouble shooting, doesn't show all the screen shots, has issues getting past "dialing" when both ends have clear connection, darkens the image (it makes the room seem significantly darker than what it actually is), multiple other things as well. It worked fine the first two weeks then progressively got worse.

  10. Priyam Gulati-avatar

    test After the update, video quality has been drastically reduced. The video preview looks pixelated. This bug is reported by a lot of users and google hasn't fixed it so far. This app looks horrible at this moment. There's no way to add screenshot otherwise I would have shared it here in the review. I also reported this issue via in app feedback . I included all the logs in the feedback. I've reported this a lot of times but haven't recieved a response from the duo team. Please fix this ASAP....

    Hello, I really love using Duo. It always gives the best experience of video chat. However, there's one issue that happens frequently. The message feature (the one on the right side of video call button) occasionally disappears for some contacts, randomly. Today I can leave message for A and not for B, but tomorrow it's vice versa. I love Duo so much so pls fix it, thanks

  12. Tega Bolaji-avatar

    I really like the app, it makes connecting with friends easier and the quality is pretty good. The fact that you can send a message, video message, voice mail, it's a really cool feature.i think 5 stars will be nice. It's so funny to say that I discovered this app during quarantine 😆😆. I'll like Google duo's reply on features that I haven't discovered and share it with my friends.

    Clear and crisp video resolution! I love how you can keep the video and audio rolling and you're able to minimize the video screen while browsing your phone. Every other video app, if you minimize the video, it puts the video on hold. I can check text messages, or go online on a browser at the same time as seeing the small screen of video at the same time.

  14. John Travell-avatar

    'Sort of' works OK for me, on both my ancient Asus K7 (5.0.1) and Sony L3 (8.1.0), but neither offer the effects menu item. As you may gather I am not one of those people willing to spend mega-bucks to get the latest device :-) I get no menu items at all on the K7, and only 'low light' on the L3. Probably due to the old Android versions that are the latest available for either device. Duo is the same version on both, currently 91.something... Video and audio is OK to good on both, depending on signal quality. It would be good to have a definitive statement as to which version of Android is required to enable specific features in this app.

    Hi Duo, I have used this app in the past and I love it, but for some reason the people I'm calling can't hear me anymore. I've already reinstalled the app, rebooted my phone and removed my Duo account altogether to create a new one. Non of that worked. Also, when recording video's or a Duo message, my microphone does pick up my voice, so it doesn't seem to be physically broken. How could I solve this? Kind regards, Yannick

  16. R Wade-avatar

    Very low volume when using video call. I really want to like this app but the low speaker volume makes it unusable when talking to people using video call. It's frustrating to see Video but not be able to hear. Messaging works well add I like the effect you can add. Lots of great potential but the primary function of it doesn't work. I have tried to increase the volume coming from the speaker in every way with no success. I don't have this problem with my phone or any other app.

    I love this app as it connects me with loves ones so easily! And I trust Google. My only issue is the effects - my 9 year old niece and I seem to have some of the same and some different. I had a specific eddect one day and it was gone the next. I'd even be willing to pay a reasonable price for extra effects, just to make her laugh! Please look into this! Thanks much!

  18. Eduardo Danisi-avatar

    The best video calling app. Period. There is one problem though: Devices that have pop-up cameras (or alternative ways for the front camera to show up) make the camera slide out right after the incoming call notification, before actually answering the call! You can see how this can be problematic. I do not want to risk the camera mechanism to break just for a Duo call, please fix this! ✌🏻

    This is a very good app and is very nice. I have a samsung tablet and is a great way to talk with my friends! Will warn you that is does glitch sometimes in a call for me and then got worse and I think that is is because of my low storage. I love sending videos to my friends and is a great app for kids. ,you boyfriend has it and he says it doesn't work as well apples but still works.

  20. Thom Christy-avatar

    I use it to record interviews for our local low-power Public Radio nonproft station because the sound quality is far superior to the normal cell phone sound. There is however still a problem with what I call "digital artifacts" - little crunches when a syllable is lost, or an elongated vowel sound. I'm sure this may have something to do with packet servers and internet transmission speed. Please keep working on "refining out" these occasional but annoying errors!

  21. Don Maclay-avatar

    We were delighted to find a Facetime quality video calling app that works seamlessly between Android (Google) and IOS (Apple) devices. Apple wouldn't do it so Google did! Installation is a breeze, and once installed on a mobile phone it migrates to other devices such as a tablet. I on!y wish that Google would develop a Windows version.

  22. Mannu Safr-avatar

    Very good app. Best quality calls. But to bring to the notice of developers last time when I called my sister my voice wasn't reaching her. Instead the tablet was echoing back my voice. It went like that for sometime and then my sister also had the same experience. Thank you and please make sure that it never happen next time.

    I tried to use Duo in the past but couldn't quite hang on to it. Now with the new features it's giving a rich user experience. The video call quality has been good so far and hope it stays that way. The reason for missing a star is due to effects not available on receivers phone. I believe it is due to phone hardware but if the feature could be made available for both parties irrespective of h/w it would be a great experience.

  24. Anastasia-avatar

    Duo is a very handy and useful app! It takes movement very poorly, it glitches, and freezes. I know all apps like this may do that but I would not recommend to do any movement that might affect it over the camera. I do like the fact it allows you to send video messages! Overall this is a really good app! I recommend this!

  25. joey krems-avatar

    It's really good 😊👌 I like it more than messenger on Facebook. . I still have not figured everything out on it. like how to call people. They call me and I answer. Lol But I like the. Clear quality of the picture when u talk. Anyway s it's worth using... 4 stars.... not 5.... because the picture sometimes freezing I don't know if it's the connection or if when u move to fast the picture don't keep up.... But all in all I like it.

    My brother lives 2 states away, so video chat is our only way to see each other throughout the year. When we found Duo on our phones, we were SO excited! Finally, a version of facetime for android users! Unfortionately, the app freezes on a very regular basis, and it usually takes between 5-10 tries to actually connect. I love that I can see my brother when I'm talking to him but, Duo really needa to work on their connectivity issues. For now, Zoom is the better option.

  27. THE FIXER-avatar

    Duo works great for work and personal use. I would recommend it to any one who works out in the field doing anything related to construction and repairs. Being able to show aspects of the job instead of having to explain it has sped up completion times. It also works great when your children or significant others wants to say hi when they miss you while you are out on site. Great app...I'm glad my son asked my to download it

  28. Will Rose-avatar

    Great app for video calling, but I'm not sure I can keep using it because it's finding a way to eat through my very limited data. If my WiFi temporarily drops during a video call, right now it automatically switches to my data which I DON'T want. I would rather the call drop entirely. Please include this as an option! It seems my last audio call used up some of my data too. An indicator as to what connection is being used would be useful.

  29. IAmRonni-avatar

    Pros: good quality & sound, easy to use, & an assortment of fun/silly video effects. Cons: the image of the person you're speaking with is obscured (to some degree) by your own image (in addition to a box next to your face) & the effects that are supposed to mimic the movement of your facial features can be pretty glitchy. Overall, really good app that can be used without a ton of set up & is a really good option for older individuals to use due to the ease of operation.

  30. Grant Dawson-avatar

    I am on a Google pixel so I am pretty limited on "FacTime" apps and this app heats your phone up like crazy. Sucks your battery away faster than you can say "good bye" to the person you are talking too. That is if you can see them. If you are more than 5fy from your router the video quality will either look like 6 pixels trying to make a face or shut off completely. With a bit of work this could be really cool but it isn't there yet.

    MAJOR FLAW!: You would think having the ability to delete members of a group AND to delete the group altogether would be a basic standard functionality...but nope - can't do either. So even if you create a new group to omit previous members, the rest of the group gets confused and your list is cluttered because you can't delete the 'old' group. Definitely needs to be fixed.

  32. Bertha Aguilar-avatar

    Love the app. It's especially important now that I have a daughter as an inpatient at a hospital and they wouldn't leave visitors in to see/be with her during this Covid19 time. She doesn't have Covid19 but had to have emergency gallbladder surgery. Thank you soooooo much your Duo helped immensely. ❤

  33. Annie Gant-avatar

    It worked amazing and was my favorite app to video chat with beating Skype by a long shot up until the most recent update.. The sound quality sucks, calls keep dropping and half the time I have to call multiple times before it goes through. I don't have any of these issues with any of my other apps and they just started when I updated duo.. I'm really sad about this and hope it gets fixed :(

  34. aaron willhite-avatar

    My sister lives 2 hours away from my son and I and we use Google duo on a daily basis so they can keep in contact. I absolutely LOVE this app. We get clear video with amazing sound and never get disconnected. My son sends video messages as well as texts and loves the fact that he has multiple ways to communicate with his Aunt Ber !!! Thanks Google for making long distance relationships a little easier on the us 💚

  35. D Griffin-avatar

    Hijacked my Direct Share menu the first time I used it and the only way to fix that is to clear storage on the app. Why? Because no matter how little you use Duo or Messages (both Google apps do this), the first time you do, they jack control of Direct Share. AndroidCentral and AndroidAuthority have both written about the issue and it's been going on for months with no resolution.

  36. Tish Mata-avatar

    I used to LOVE this app. It was easy to use over wifi and didn't eat much mobile data. My mom and I used it to stay in touch for over a year. She lives in an adult life stage facility in Texas. I also used it to keep in touch with my cousin in Cali. Then one day, it just up and quit working over wifi. I have tried everything!!!! I have sent multiple feedback requests asking for help. Gone to the help board and the community and can get no answers or help. Very sad.

  37. Mister GiGs-avatar

    UPDATE: Google your help article is useless. App was not preinstalled, app was not installed by me, app showed up one day and I cannot get it to go away, deleting account is great, but I have to make one first to then delete it (I never had an account). Keeps auto installing itself, even though I uninstall it, disable it, anything I can do to remove it from my phone. Hey Google, take a hint, I don't want this app, allow me to not have to have this app without continuously pushing it on me.

  38. Adrean Pinder-avatar

    App needs a lot of improvements. For one, I'd like the ability to add someone or to a voice or video call while in a call, instead of having to to do it before a call. I saw a couple people mention this as well. Also, I would like the ability to turn on and off the camera while in a video call, basically the ability to switch to a video call in a voice call, and vice versa. This would make the app perfect. In general this app needs more options while you're in a call.

  39. Waji M-avatar

    IMPROVE THE APP !!!!!! Terrible. Voice cuts out, glitches, video call drops, doesn't show notifications even though my settings are ON, echoing constantly, when people talk their lips move but the voice comes in seconds later..... the list goes on. Please fix this issue!!! With this quarantine going on, this is the only way people can see loved ones in hospitals, other countries etc. Google has the means to fix this issue...its supposed to be running with better quality than other apps

  40. Vicky Newton-avatar

    Duo a great way to actually see the person that is calling, so if you have multiple duplicate names in your mobile but not sure who is who - Duo allows you to connect through video chat seeing the person that's calling before you answer or accept the call. I really like this feature. I would like to suggest though some better effects to use...some at a more mature age level.

    Amazing app, especially for my brother and I. As we both use Android, we play around with the effects and if there is ever an emergency, he can always video call me on Duo! One thing to be fixed is the sound quality, but other than that, it is such an amazing app. Just like face time, but for Android. 😀

    Hi Duo, This is a Very bad experience while using this app. Did not expect this from Google. The effects option is not working. I am even not getting the three dots icon forg it. How do I fix this problem. This was a very irritating experience. No information is given on Google Duo Support or Google. I am using samsung galaxy Tab A Actually, I wanted to give zero star- rating but that is not possible. It would be good if Duo could help me out. very bad that duo hasn't responded within 5 days

    I love this video calling app it's literally the best one.... But it has a major issue with call control, audio routing and Bluetooth control. It's always switching the audio for the entire device, to the earpiece. It's very annoying and it does it 50% of the time. I have to constantly restart my phone after a few duo calls.

    Great App but the only issue I have been facing that is driving me crazy is when I use the after app after some time and make a call. The app makes the call in the background yet I cannot see the calling page so I am unable to cancel the call, change to load speaker - all those options are hidden. Other than is annoying issues I'm faced with. I like and enjoy using Duo!

    There is a bug in google duo app. The video of the caller is showing before we pick up the call (If I am calling my brother before he pickup I can see what he's doing there) I can see clearly what the caller is doing before he/she pickup their call. It will be good if you guys can fix this, other than that this app is awesome creation by google.

  46. Sudipta Ghosh-avatar

    It's a nice app to get connected. But a limit of 12 with no flexibility, unlike WhatsApp call - where you can choose your 'group for the day', is a serious disadvantage. In duo, you have to make new groups everytime, you wish a new person to join. Also, created groups without admin has no means of removal, if so desired.

  47. Danielle DeFoe-avatar

    Easy to use with my Google mini. Works great when I can't locate my phone and urgently need to make an important phone call. It also connects to my phone number so I don't have to explain to the people I call why I'm not calling from my device. It also gives you the option to use a different number if you would like to. I like this app so far!!

    Use this often more recently since it's best for me to remain home due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Wife and kids can call on duo a walk thru shopping for/with me. (And also helps so there is less yelling thru the house to talk to people, lazy tho it seems! 🥴) Only issue is call quality at times moat noted re within Costco and Sam's Club warehouses. This isn't entirely the apps fault, but maybe switching to voice only on a weak signal would be preferable.

    The app works well with low internet speed and the delay and video quality is acceptable. However the UI and UX of the app could be better. I also found it difficult to send a text message and emojis in text messages are so limited. Moreover, when you delete a sent message there is no option to delete it for the receiver, so the he/she will always receive your message even though you delete it.

  50. Sherry pie-avatar

    I have not been able to use Duo for quite some time now..not sure if it's because of an update..but when trying to make a call, it doesn't ring at all goes straight into saying that the person didn't answer..also, when receiving a call it just says connecting but nothing happens..tried several times and many different occasions..tried clear cache, checked all my settings, etc and still nothing

  51. Vikster Bee-avatar

    Clear, easy to use, cool new " effects" which are totally awesome especially when you're having a bad face day LOL! I love it and my parents who are in there 70's AND are not fans of the tech world AT ALL; had no problems using this app! They also LOVE it cuz its easy and they get to see the fam ♡! Also it's FREE and AD FREE TOO ! So far so good, I recommended it to fam/friends...especially right now. NOT able to be with our loved ones sux so thank you Duo for this user friendly app! ♡

  52. Massimo Poggio-avatar

    Awesome app. Much better than Facetime. I have asked family members with iPhones to download the app and now we can all have video calls. As with Facetime, the calls can be made through WiFi and with the PC app, group video calls can be set up. I think this will also hit Microsoft hard with Skype and allow non-business related video calls tha t are more like Webinars, into a Zoom like "family videos". Perfect for these days of Covid-19.

    I had the app on my phone but never knew I had it and used it the first time today for a wellness check up from my insurance company. The video and audio was clear except for a few moments of hesitation as we were speaking, probably because of where I was sitting in my house. I know I'll be using it much more often. It works great on my Note 9!

    I have a major issue with the fact that I can not turn video off on my samsung galaxy s20 ultra. The option dose not show up on the screen. I have it install on other devices and I get the option to turn off video even on my iPhone. If anything the Samsung being android should function better but it does not. The is a problem that might force me to Uninstall it.

  55. Striker Squadz-avatar

    Awsome app. Since I dont have an iPhone I wasnt able to face time my Long Distance Dad but this app really helped. Although it can get glitchy it's really cool with the filters and the videos you can send. I really like it and would reccomend it to friends like I already have. Also I have a YouTube channel if you wanna check it out. Its is 'Striker Squadz' and my TikTok is @Silver_striker2000

  56. ToxicZombie-avatar

    Edit: The battery issue is solved, but now it's buggy to use, sometimes everyday, i don't get a notification when my group sends a note message, and when i exit out of the keyboard, the "Send" and the other options on the "Note Message" blocks the part of the message i want to send, and can't really see what i said unless i send, when i open up the Google Duo App, and want to send a message, i have to go back and try to send again... Is there any other way to fix this issue also as well?

    Video quality has gotten really horrible and this has been a problem on my Sony Xperia Z5 Compact probably since last year. The app is practically unusable since then but still I was hoping that it'll be fixed, but unfortunately the problem is still there. The image quality looks so overly-compressed, making it look rough and ugly. I don't know if it's an OS problem since the quality is okay on my ASUS Zenfone 4 Max running Android oreo. I'm on Android 7.0 in my Z5C and is on stock rom.

  58. Vincent McHugh-avatar

    Excellent Quality I really like Duo as it allows us to cross the Android / IOS species barrier. The audio quality is excellent and the video is clear and problem free. It is especially nice on overseas calls when I don't get to see friends as often as I can locally in the US.

  59. Reals Wife420-avatar

    When I first got duo I thought it was pretty awesome. The longer I have it the more I realize, the filters you get are based on how good of a phone you have(software). My friends are always getting new filters while I'm stuck with the one here one there. Why can't we all have just as many or the same filters ????

    The app was working fine and did the job pretty well. However, after the latest update it stopped working and when I logged out and tried to login to my account again using my number it just doesn't work saying unable to send the request check the connection, but the internet connection is working fine and all other apps were working. Followed the instructions given by clicking on the question mark icon, but the issue still persists. Also, update your developer contact email id.Team please help

  61. Justinius Ur-avatar

    In theory this is actually a good app and that's saying a lot coming from the monolithic Google, however in reality and practice I'm not sure how good the app is because it seems if someone does not have it fully functioning on their device they don't even get notifications for calls or messages... I do like the features though the funny 3D augmented reality features are pretty damn cool!

  62. Coco punch FUN-avatar

    I love this app because you can FaceTime the people you miss that's far away and you can call your friends and other kind of people and you can also create a group chat you can add 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 or you can even add 1000000000 So this app is super cool so you should download it and tell your friends to download so. Enjoy The app ٩(ര̀ᴗര́)ᵇʸᵉ

    Google and it's Messaging strategy is a mess for sure. Duo is Good but they could integrate all the message features into a single platform which would improve Duo further, so in a single platform which can voice , video and text chat. Maybe change the name to Trio.😜 But I think I may be missing the point of this review. Duo is good and simple for voice and video chat, love it with its emojies and various effects which my kids use very much when the speak with their grandparents.

  64. Destinee Hurd-avatar

    The app works ok with some problems. The app at times will just hang up randomly and tbh its really getting annoying. If i could use skype instead i would but my camera dosnt work with skype. And other times it will just start badly glitching to the point were i cant even understand what the other person im on call with is saying, we call it "going robot" but its more of a robot with its voice mod taken out. And then with it the call would freeze. So i hope this issue can get fixed.

  65. Karen Chambers-avatar

    When a tower went down and i couldn't use me regular cell phone service to make calls, my son suggested i use this program to remain in constant with him and other gamely members and to access emergency services. Now that my regular service is working again i still found myself using this program to call my son so i could see him as well as talk to him. It was fun and allows me to feel closer to him. Thanks Google!

  66. Mack Mckinney-avatar

    I use Duo with family members who also use Google products and can easily accept my Duo calls without actually having the app. At first, It was bothersome when I received a Duo call, every device in the house would ring and alarm the dogs. After channeling calls through the Chromebook, and receiving notifications only when I am available that problem has gone away. I used to use Messenger for these calls but Duo has made life better. Thank you Google!

  67. Mani Deep-avatar

    Love duo but lacks major features like 1) adding a person in the middle of video call. To do that i have to disconnect ongoing video call and create a new group to add that person/s which is very inconvenient..whatsapp does really good on this but they lack quality.. 2) when i do a group video call. I notice people mentioning the phone is not ringing on android devices when app is open. It just shows a join button instead. I use duo for group video calls, so these drawbacks are a major setback

  68. iC Dragonfly-avatar

    Great app for video calls IF YOU CAN GET IT TO WORK!! Something it glitches out and has to be uninstalled and reinstalled.... One other issue I have with the app is sending pre-recorded video & audio messages. One they are too short at only a minute long & two it's hard to tell if your messages go threw as there is no count down or indication that it's actually sending except the word sending witch is static aka not moving leaving myself wondering if my messages got threw!

  69. Sandeep Madan-avatar

    The App is good for calls - voice & video, but has a terrible problem of not having options for setting ringtone. You need to be seeing the phone to notice the call. After a lot of struggle (googling for solutions did not help), I got a ringtone to work - but can't increase it's level or change it to a louder one.

    The previous version was much user-friendly. My realmepro does not show me the family option however my husband's Vivo v5 does. Even my contacts are not getting synced. Nevertheless, the video and audio quality. I have very good reception at my place but it just doesn't work well. However, it works fine for my husband.

  71. Shou A-jah-avatar

    I can't video chat with anyone with an iPhone. It starts the call and I can hear them, but the video won't show. I have a OnePlus 6T that is not rooted or flashed. NOTE: it does work with iPhones on a group video call. Also, I have cleared the cache, cleared the storage, and restarted my phone multiple times as a heads up.

  72. Justin Luke-avatar

    As of the last week or two I've had a problem with the audio in my video calls with duo. Consistently every very time I get an incoming duo call, the volume is limited only to the earpiece speaker at low volume like a regular voice call, so I can't hear. But every time I place an outgoing duo call the volume is loud like expected from a speakerphone call. There doesn't seem to be a setting to turn on or off speakerphone. I've tried un-installing and re-installing, didn't help.

    App is awesome and works good. The reason I gave 3 stars is bcz of these issues. One thing is u cannot do a conference call neither in audio nor in video. This is indeed needed as call quality in duo is superior than other apps that have this functionality. The other thing issue is even though I have a strong wifi connection call drops frequently and after a clear cache and storage it works normally until the next restart. These are the hindrances I faced. Plz fix these issues asap.

  74. N_ Nic.-avatar

    Video chat is fine. What's truly irritating me is the alerts that someone i know "is on Duo". I've turned OFF the setting in the app, but still get these unwanted notifications! I also don't want others notified I have Duo. I only want to video chat w/ppl i'm close with & don't want to feel pressured to video chat w/casual acquaintances if they initiate contact. Make it stop! Phone is Moto e4. Update: So weeks ago i sent the in-app feedback as recommended...Got another alert today. UNINSTALLING!

  75. Sarabella Jane-avatar

    Gotten much better over the years. My only issue is if one of the callers gets a text message the screen goes blank and you can no longer see the person you're calling until they close the text. I do love the leave a message feature if the recipient doesn't answer your call, it's very well thought out.

  76. April Kiett-avatar

    For some reason I can not get a Duo call to connect for the life of me. This is absolutely frustrating especially when this is the way i connect with my children and other family. Ive restarted updated forced stopped, im not sure what else to do being as though i cant uninstall it all together. 6/2 I can connect fine on my laptop the issue is my Phone

  77. Erol Gudul-avatar

    Audio issues continue to be unfixed. Will not play audio thru Bluetooth headset when connected to Bluetooth. Instead it plays quietly thru the phone headset instead of speaker phone which defeats the purpose of doing video calls. There should be a better solution to having to turn Bluetooth off for every call to hear the other callers. Please add an option to pick audio output like in normal phone calls.

  78. M. Watts-avatar

    This is supposed to be a video chatting app, yet Instagram which is just an all around social media app is doing it better. I video with my girlfriend for an hour on both. Google duo was worse quality and it used twice as much data on my phone. The only thing I can say in it's favor is that there was hardly any lag.

  79. michelle polen-avatar

    This seems to be a good app. I got this app because my son and daughter-in-law just had a baby and are still at the hospital and we were unable to visit due to the restrictions because of covid-19. The only issue I have with this app is the camera is on before you even answer the phone and you can see the person please fix this so the camera does not come on until after you answer the phone.

    I love this app and I definitely recommend it to anybody. It's a really easy way for me to keep in touch with my friends and family. It helps me be able to see family that I haven't seen in awhile. It helps me to keep in contact with my babies when they are with the babysitter and I am at work. And they like to call me a million and one times using duo during the day while I'm not home. Lol. The quality is good the pictures good the. The sound quality is good. Everything about this app is good.

  81. A K-avatar

    Awesome better video call quality than any other app like WhatsApp or jio calls. The great unique feature is that it does not junk your gallery, with shared photos or videos and automatically takes care after 24 hrs, like auto garbage collection. New themes are awesome. Group calls are so good, u can walkin and walk out without disrupting the call. Keep up the great work duo team.

    Hi Guys, Duo is crashing my phone 8/10 times whenever I receive an incoming call either on data/WiFi, This started a month ago, it was less severe initially, but has crashed (turned off) my phone 6 times straight. As soon as phone starts ringing the sound breaks up and within a second phone is off, I'm using latest Duo, with latest firmwares on my phone (Lenovo K8 Note 64 GB) Have a look at this, Unfortunately I have to uninstall this app till this issue gets resolved, Regards,

  83. Nate Miller-avatar

    Please add the ability to share my screen and I will give you all the stars! It's great for video calls because you don't have to take turns talking, meaning if someone interrupts; you can hear what they are saying and respond like normal, unlike FaceTime- where you can't talk like humans! So, ok 5 stars... but add screen share! Please!

  84. Raymond Makau-avatar

    I find Duo to be quite reliable and smooth. I'd have given it 5 stars but I am missing in call effects. Various forum threads have another users with the same issue. Both my sister and I have Huawei phones, and she has effects. The discrepancy is worth looking into (for many users who otherwise think this app is awesome 👍).

    Google Duo has alot of promise, but due to high video lag it falters. It is otherwise a very good, and simple to use app. I love Google and the company itself, I'm sure they will take care of the issues on this app, but until then I recomend users waiting on this app for future fixes.

  86. Faith Johnson-avatar

    Very clear, not fuzzy and good sound quality! Very pleased! I had a 4 hour conversation with my bestie- actually she was teaching me a difficult oragami project and had to give me very clear directions and Duo never failed to get the message through! With many video chat apps they glitch, break up very easily and are overall very poor, but Duo is not.

  87. Pandagirl _633-avatar

    I love this app it's amazing you can see if he remembers not to like talk on the phone without seeing them use you get to see them and actually look at them I love this app there's really nothing wrong with it maybe sometimes it can be a little glitchy but it's a really good at you guys should all buy it it's amazing and I wish there was like more faces so for the video or like when you're on a phone call you can put like little faces on that would be cool but love this app

  88. Stehpen Gray-avatar

    That's what it says on the box excellent experience highly recommend it for anybody very easy to use once setup sound and picture fantastic 😀😀😀😀😀👍👍👍 my mum and dad could even work it from there iPod as well and they are in their 80s just a pity we couldn't get it it on the big TV we can't wait if Google will lunch something like the Facebook camera please please think about it.

  89. Pallavi Raj-avatar

    I love this app and the video quality is amazing but i have a few suggestions for more convenience : 1) it should be eligible to sign from multiple accounts as it is sometimes needed 2) we should also be able to send text messages on it as well I hope that these suggestions should atleast will atleast be thought of other wise a lovely and very convenient app

  90. Tyrel Mobley-avatar

    Call quality is fantastic and does it's job for the most part but this might be because of my device but when on a call I can't turn on my video at all. Only a minor inconvenience since it is a video calling app but It would be better if that option was available.

  91. Abie Vicky-avatar

    The video call is incredible But the only thing I find annoying is that in a group call of more than 4 people the video of people in the video call keeps on moving and changing frequently on the screen. It is really annoying and irritating when it happens in a group call If the change happens once in 30 minutes or after an hour , that's ok But frequently changing every minute is very annoying and everyone decided not to use it because of this feature Kindly please see through it

  92. Brandi Riley-avatar

    The quality is excellent with 2 people, but the more people you add, the worse it gets. I WANT to give it 4 stars but even with only 3 people the quality just isn't that great. I DO still use it all the time for group chats and it DOES serve the purpose I need it to. Just not in the best way. Lol

  93. Michael Polly-avatar

    This is the first time I've ever used duo and the only reason that I am using it is because my brother who is an airborne school right now has been calling me off of it and let me tell you it is phenomenal it is a must-have a highly recommend getting it. P.s. not a paid actor....

  94. My Name J-avatar

    Every time I call a friend or a friend calls me it just says connecting and it never connects. On the other person's end it keeps ringing so they eventually hang up although I have answered and am waiting for it to connect and visa versa. Google ya'll need to step up. I am really thinking of going to apple since facetime does not have these issues. I've been with android over 15 years and I will switch to apple so that I can video chat when I want unless ya'll get this together!

    Good. On voice call, the sound is pretty clear, but lags a little bit, I guess due to the poor quality of network. Developers should enable low data usage in a call. I also noticed a lot of echoes during calls, quite inconveniencing. As for picture, top quality. More review later.

  96. Petra Aragon-avatar

    My tablet only allows calls to go out or be dialed out to ONLY registered Duo users. Somehow it changed my regular calling telephone numbers about 1 week after I started using my tablet.

  97. Aliyah Perez-avatar

    I have a Samsung s20+ & I am unable to receive call notifications unless the app is physically open on my phone. On my s9 I was able to see the other individual before answering the call and I was able to answer the call while my phone was locked. With my new phone, even after updating and doing all the recommended suggestions, only when my phone is unlocked will I see an icon for duo but I have to drop down my notification bar to click answer resulting in many missed calls. Please fix!!

DUO has been an integral asset as a communication tool used with relatives visiting with their health care providers. You are right in the room with everyone to ask questions & work as a patient advocate.

    I love this app, but I have 2 issues with it. Callers go mute at random times and the ringer notification needs to give you volume options. I always miss calls from my son because I can't hear it when he calls. He's in the military so those calls are important to me!!

Dad's very computer literate since the early 80s with his cheap commador64 and Vic20 LoL...but ma needs easy userware and this perfect we enjoy it anyway. I use the phone but its wifi so it's fine. A tablet is better to show things off. Otherwise it's a decent person to person videos call app.
