Google is working on a smart video calling app called Duo, it is a one-to-one video messaging app as the company announced today and this is quite the same as Apple’s FaceTime app.
Duo will appear on both iOS and Android smartphones and tablets very soon.
Well, this smart video messaging app is very easy to operate like Apple’s FaceTime just select a contact or mobile number, call them, and begin a video conversation.
That gives it a much more extensive potential client base — and a more extensive scope of individuals you can call. That could be sufficient to give Apple something to worry about.
One thing that should be mentioned is that Duo is not Google’s first app unveiling of the day, o there is also Allo which has highlights like Whisper and Shout. It is a messaging app which is said to learn more about you as you use it. Allo also works with Assistant, Google’s smart voice assistant.
It remains to be seen how the app will live up to the claims it makes, and whether most people would be convinced to switch to this new app. Let’s hope it fairs better than some others which have come and gone.
