  • I love it but a few things.....


    By jfjfjdndk
    I absolutely love this app and I use it daily!! My friend has a Samsung and I have an iPhone so I can FaceTime her with this app and also send videos and fun things like that, one thing I’ll consider is that I cannot flip my camera when I’m doing a message while my other friend can... please fix this Edit: I just updated Duo today and I do t have the choice for Family or the doodle things. A lot of other things are updated but the one I am most excited about is not showing up!!! Does anyone know how I can fix this? Edit #2: So, I am guessing that a lot of people have the same problem. I can’t share my screen or use the Family or Doodle options. Otherwise I love the app and it is very very nice to have. I have an iPhone 8 and I read that it needs to be a newer iOS phone. I am really bummed about this. My friend has a Samsung and she has the doodle and family options and I don’t. This sort of makes me annoyed when I want to share my screen but I can’t. Could you guys pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase fix this if you can 👉🏻👈🏻🥺
  • This app drives me INSANE


    By Lady Itonhead
    My video freezes when I walk away from WiFi. That’s not the problem though. It used to do that to me all the time on this app. But now when I’m still on DUO and I turn the WiFi off, the video stays frozen even after WiFi is off. I still can hear the person I’m talking to but their picture is frozen. Then when I go to hang up the phone so they can call back, DUO doesn’t let me answer. I hit the accept call button for the face to face call and the app shuts down and disappears on me. I have to open up my app drawer where all my previous apps that I haven’t closed out yet are, and it’s there. I push on it to open the app and screen back up and try to answer and yet again it disappears. I again have to search for it in my unclosed app drawer and try to hit accept video call. I do that a couple times, it disappears on me a few more times, then finally I close out the app because it won’t let me answer the call. After closing DUO and all the other apps I had open I try yet again to answer and it won’t let me. I literally have to wait a few minutes to even TRY AGAIN to answer video call on here. It’s driving me NUTS! Fix! So frustrating! If it’s not one thing it’s always another!
  • Good reception !!!!.


    By Cotton Candi 64
    My family member lives in Fredericksburg Virginia and I live in Washington DC the reception was so good I almost feel like they we’re sitting in the same room with me. I have a iPhone and as everyone knows that comes with FaceTime but My Family don’t and thisService is just as good if not sometimes betterThen a iPhone so if you don’t have Duo you definitely need to download it on your phone so you can reach out to your family and Friends.I would definitely recommend Google Duo to everyone .So don’t wait download so you can start having fun like I am !!!!!!.Tomorrow we’re having a Duo PartyWhat we’re going to be listening to music have a nice snacks and drinking a few cocktails don’t be left out You ,Your Family and Your friends can have the same kind of Party !!!!.
  • Puts a smile on your face & twinkle in your eye


    By bfhgi
    In this day and age, communication is no longer a simple phone call. So with the next generation growing up with all of this new technology at their fingertips, they learn to manage with bad connections, Skippy voice and dropped video feed. I am old school! If I’m on a video chat and the service drops or the phone is choppy or the app blinks in and out then I’m mad...I’m highly upset! I would just rather dial the digits and hear a voice. I have recently switched to the Apple line of cell phones. And have had a little experience with FaceTime. I don’t feel like it’s any better than Facebook messenger which is a joke when it comes to video calling. The Google duo on the other hand has exceptional exceptional video feed message feed and it really does put a smile on my face and a twinkle in my eye to pick up my phone and have a video message that I can see just as clear as if they were standing in front of me from one of my children it just makes my day.
  • Sound issues


    By Cabeza7777
    Ok so I use this app a lot, and I mean a lot to talk to people, mainly because I have friends who don’t have the same kind of phone as me and stuff like that. It works great most of the time but there have been times where I’m trying to call someone and it won’t go through for them and they try and it won’t go through for me, or if I/the other person try to call each other if I try and answer it won’t let me, and same with them. Also sometimes I can’t even call the person! It just sends me straight to making a little video message. And, now it is sound I have turned my phone on and off and same as the other person we have tried EVERYTHING...well mot deleting the app, but I seriously don’t want to feel like I have to resort to deleting and reinstalling it. Not that it’s much work it’s just I feel these issues need to be fixed, I hope someone sees this because it is beyond annoying.
  • Phenomenal call quality


    By M. Piela
    Downloaded this app because I have ZERO cell service in my house and apple didn’t enable WiFi calling. So instead of stepping outside in the rain or freezing weather whenever someone wanted to call me at home, Duo has solved that. Call audio is the clearest I have ever heard on a phone call, like the person is on the other side of your phone talking at your ear. I have strong WiFi so I can’t say how it would perform if WiFi is spotty. I noticed that when you are not on WiFi and take a duo call over your cell service there is a bit of a delay between accepting the call and when the caller can hear you which can lead to some confusion, but still great call quality. Very simple interface, no bells and whistles, just works, and works great.
  • Very good video calling app


    By Strip Weathers (Dinoco King)
    My mom is Deaf and so we have used Duo to communicate when we are not at home together, especially since I have an iPhone and she has a Samsung. In my family, we have used many video chatting apps but none have worked as great or smoothly as Duo, especially since there is the option to leave a video message! One feature that I wish the app had is to mute the other person— sometimes when I am on a call with my mom, I am in a public place, such as at a grocery store or salon, and I have to ask my mom to mute herself on the phone since lowering the volume and turning the ringer off from my phone does not actually turn the volume off. Other than that, Duo is really good for video calls!
  • Okay.. but a couple little thing!


    By Rtdf
    So I just got duo a couple days ago because my friend can’t FaceTime on her phone so we tried this. When I first got in the app it was very very confusing! I had no idea what I was doing maybe it’s cause I just got it! But I thought it would be a little easier! Second when I finally got on a call with my friends the audio is awful! I could hear a thing and it kept on freezing and breaking up and sometimes we would have to leave the call then I can’t join back unless they ring me! And I would like where I can see my friends the whole time! Because on my phone (iPhone 11) you can’t go out of the app and see them! But on the other hand on my friends phone (some none apple)she can go out of the app and see us! Please take this to mind! I think if all these changed this could be the one of the best apps!
  • Awsome but would change two things...


    By jgffcjnn
    This app truly saved my life. I have a very close friend that didn’t have a iPhone to face time and they live a million miles away from me. This app lets you turn your camera off and on and it is also free! I use this app almost every night to stay on call with my boyfriend witch I love that that is possible but my only complaint is that the app over heats my phone... I have an iPhone and the top right of the phone gets so hot I literally have to stop charging it and take the case off! I have even tried restarting my phone. The other thing I would change is that when your video chatting or voice calling that’s all you can use the app for so let’s say my friend messages me and I’m on the phone with my boyfriend I can’t see the message or respond to it. But other than that it’s an AMAZING APP!!! Thank you google!
  • Great app, but drains battery


    By Gmags23
    This is a great app and all, and I love it, but I was on it with my friend for about 5 minutes, and my battery totally almost died. Before I started this call I was at about 50%, but I had to end it because my phone was at 1%. I told my friend about it though, and she said her battery wasn’t dying at all. It may just be the phone company though because she has a Samsung and I have an Apple. Trick for Apple users: if you power your phone off, wait ten seconds, and then power it back on, it gains a lot of battery. I like now that you can do group chats. That’s a cool new feature that was just added. Also, I can Google Duo my friends that have Samsung’s. I love that you can send videos and I just love it!!
