Duo Features And Review:
Duo is the fastest video calling app which promises to provide to you quality video chat even on slow networks. It has been introduced by Google in its I/O developer conference. Duo has been designed to make video chats and calls more reliable on slowest internet connections. Like its similar apps chat app, Allo, duo is mobile only app. It is also both compatible to ios and android like Allo app.The interface of duo is user friendly and simple like Skype and chat on. The basis function of this app is same like any other call app like opening of this app brings to you selfie cam video preview through which you can make a call and chit chat with your friends and family.1). Crazy fast app:
- One of the most exciting features available only on android is that a user receiving a call can see live video of person calling on the lock screen and when the other person answers the video call is already going on instantly.
2). End to end encrypted video calls:
- Lots of resources has been spent by Google to handle and resolve the technical issues such as dynamic automatic ability of app to adjust the video and audio quality to suit the connections whether low or medium.
- The calls are connected using QUIC over UDP for fast end-to-end encrypted connection. It means hassle free connection and chat is possible without dropping the call. It’s a mobile only app and faster and it’s cross platform.
- All over when compared to Skype and hangouts of Google itself duo is the app which brings another wave of fresh video call app which competes on the basis of its instant connection on lowest possible net connection.
Overall Allo and Duo needs to be better to really challenge the facebook, whatsapp and Imessage of apple which have billions of user to stay their foot in market. These two apps seems to be good with respect to the features, speed and security they have to their customer it will be not a bad idea to give a trail to these awesome chat and video app.
