Google Duo, the latest app by Google has topped the Google Play Store “Top Free” ranks within 3 days of the launch.
According to Android Police, the video chat app is now occupying the #1 spot in the Play Store top free downloads. Given the strength of its competitors, it looks like Google Duo has managed to raise a significant amount of interest among Android users.
In addition, Google intends to add audio calling to Duo as well. Users whose handsets are sporting Android 4.1+ or newer can tap into Google’s new video chatting app, no matter where they are located.
Video calling services keep bonds strong; not only can you hear their voice, but you can virtually be face to face. The pitch for Duo at I/O makes it quick and easy. Third, a feature called Knock Knock allows access to your caller’s livestream before you accept the call to see their surroundings as a hint as to why they are calling. The app smartly switches between Wi-Fi and 4G network. “You can start your call at home, and continue seamlessly even when you head out the door”. Google Duo is now available globally.
