Duo is ok. Have a few friends i communicate with on it but i think WhatsApp is Champ for one on one chats..never used either Duo or WhatsApp for multiple ppl chats or conferencing. I think Zoom has seen major usability and downloads since the CV problem.

My pure android phone have this app too but I never even use it and can't uninstall it. Lol.

It IS well and alive. It got a front row seat on the Galaxies, being integrated in the phone and messaging app.

Anonymous, 28 Mar 2020First app that I delete in every phoneIn most phones, esp in those with stock or similar to stock software, you can't delete Duo.. only disable it (if you don't want go root way)

So its not usable in schools? Most got 30 minimum.

Sure, Messneger/Whatsapp ain't as foolproof and streamlined as Duo, but Duo has had a serious bug (for years now). In Duo, when one caller starts using speaker, the other caller will start hearing themselves... Really, really bad echo!

All Two Dozen people using Duo are happy :)

Anonymous, 28 Mar 2020If everyone realize if Duo is better than WHATSAPP.In my personal experience, I feel that Duo is better than WhatsApp, in both voice and video call. But almost no one in my contacts list use it.

Is it just me? Or no one else noticed that there's a portrait mode accessible in google duo?

First app that I delete in every phone

Im curious if it was 6 peopole max before because of the software or a hardware limitation?
