great alternative to Skype, if your friends are not in your network for free video calling built into your phone this app is AMAZING. It ties right to your phone book, no need to create a username or get assigned a user number, once your friends are in the app and your in each other's contacts toy cam video call them with no extra steps. I recommend this app! First 5 star rating I have given in a LONG time.
What's wrong with you people? I saw in Google duo help forum and and got to know that we cannot verify non US number.... And many people complained and still you people didn't resolved it.... It will be great if you resolve it soon or it going to damage Google's name...
For some reason this doesn't work with BSNL. The moment I call anyone from Google Duo, my mobile is disconnected from internet. But works perfectly fine with Airtel. Duo team, please collaborate with BSNL as well. You will be surprised to know the number of BSNL users. You will be connecting with rural India as well.
Quality was good enough to see the face on 8mp camera ..but if you go for 5mp or lower than that then maybe it will be more hazy .. and when it comes about data usage. It is much more higher than Imo WhatsApp and other video call apps. Still it is best for quality as it's consuming more data. Even though it's best among all.
Video frequently gets choppy even with a strong connection on both sides. I never use it unless my phone is plugged in because of the rapid battery drain, which makes the calls awkward. Still, it's the most reliable app I've tried so far for making calls between my Android phone and my Sister's iPhone.
The best thing about this app is how simple and easy to use it is. I've been using it to talk with my 7 and 8 year old daughters almost daily. They know how to call and how to answer and we've always had really good picture and voice quality.
