Happy Wednesday, Take cordial love from Mi Community Bangladesh Resource Team. This is the fourth week of our new series "Weekly App Study". Today we are reviewing of Google Duo which is the best video chatting app still now. So what are you waiting for? Let's begin!
Google Duo is essentially Google's answer to FaceTime. It's also one of the most simple video chat apps available. You simply log in, verify your number, and you're good to go. You can video call other Google Duo users like you're making a normal phone call. The app is cross-platform. That means it works between and Android and iOS. This is about as easy as it gets for video calling apps. It's really very good.
Duo is a little startling at first because you see live video of yourself up top. Underneath, you'll see your recent conversations, along with all the people you know who have the app.
To call someone, just tap on their photo. Another thing that makes Google Duo different: you can enable the option to let the other person see your live video while the call is dialing.
Once the other person picks up, Google Duo looks a lot like other video calling apps. The other person's video takes up the majority of the screen, and your own video will appear in the corner.
One feature that makes Google Duo superior to FaceTime: if the other person doesn't pick up the call, you can leave them a video message. All you have to do to leave a video message on Google Duo is press record. Then, the other person will get a notification that they have a video waiting for them. To watch a video message, just click on the person's picture. Once you watch it, you'll have the option to save it to your camera roll.
One other nice feature: Once you're done watching, a button will pop up inside the video that lets you call the person back immediately. When you scroll down, you'll see all your contacts who don't have Duo. If you see someone you want to chat with, you can quickly invite them to the app.
It’s a simple replacement for Apple’s FaceTime, which is especially useful for families with both Android and Apple devices, with a mix of smartphones and tablets. Other than the cross-platform benefit, it has a few enhancements over FaceTime, including:
So Mi fans, what's your experience is after using this cool app?
