I use this app to talk to my fiance and sister when I'm not using messenger. Pros: Its a easy app to use for video or voice call. Doesn't drain your battery life too fast. Built into most Androids. No ads. Cons: Sometimes, the audio will mess up. Either I can't hear the other person or they can't hear me. Simply hanging up and calling back fixes it though. At times, My sister will call me and the calls won't come through and vice versa. Again, restarting the app helps.

Google is constantly creating new video and chat apps and discarding old ones with no rhyme or reason, and Duo is another great example. It works fine but doesn't play well with the desktop and is missing features we had in Hangouts - no way to add participants once you start a call, no way to share screen, etc. I imagine in a year this app will be shut down as well and we'll have to learn a new one.

Hi, Daisuke. To start a group call, you can make use of this link: goo.gle/3gLj8NL. Should you continue to have issues, please submit feedback within the Duo app by clicking the Menu button then the 'Support' tab and tap 'Send Feedback'. Thank you.

Video and voice quality can be kind of glitchy at times. That could easily be a network problem since I live in a small town though.( I know its not my phone its a new s22 ultra.) Other than that we've never had any problems that really matter to the functionality of the app. Works great and very convenient. We've used it for personal calls of course, but we've also used it for doctors appointments, especially during Covid.

Hi, Sheri. If you are experiencing poor quality video calls, consult the troubleshooting guide: https://goo.gle/2YZC2Kw This is especially important if you have an older device, are on a low-strength network, or have other software on your device that may interfere with video calling. Hope this helps!
