A Short History First, a little context about Duo and where it fits into the universe of Google apps.
The Silicon Valley company announced in May at its annual developer conference that Duo would be coming.
When more people use Duo, we can expect the picture quality to vary depending on network traffic and internet speeds.
There is a minor difference for Duo between Android and i Phone users.
Google has fought back with its Android operating system and a series of mobile apps that are more flexible and compatible with a broader set of devices than Apple’s apps.Duo Versus Face Time The Duo app is downloadable and free through Google’s Play store and Apple’s App Store.When you open the Duo app, there is just one button: video call.Crystal Dahlen, a Google spokeswoman, said the name Duo conveyed that the app was designed for one-to-one video calling on mobile devices, in contrast to Hangouts, which lets groups of people make video calls over mobile devices and computers. Jobs, Apple’s co-founder, said he had dreamed of mobile video calling since he grew up watching “The Jetsons” and “Star Trek.” Apple later expanded Face Time to work with i Pads and Macs, among other Apple products.The company has not published statistics on Face Time use, but the technology helped make mobile video calling mainstream.
