I downloaded Google duos yesterday, it has changed by FaceTimeing life forever! My second cousin Khloe has a Samsung, and I have an iPhone! We couldn’t FaceTime, until she told me about Google duoS! I downloaded it not thinking of such high-quality, not thinking of so many features, not even thinking about seeing the other persons point of view! I just can’t believe I wasn’t told about this amazing FaceTime in up earlier! This is the most amazing, phenomenal, interesting, and useful app for Samsung and iPhone users that aren’t at war! I am proud to say I am writing an amazing review on Google duos, to let others know how phenomenal this app is! I just can’t believe I wasn’t told about this amazing FaceTimeing app earlier! This is the most amazing, phenomenal, interesting, and useful app for Samsung and iPhone users that aren’t at war! I am so happy to say I am writing an amazing review on Google duo, to let others know how phenomenal and amazing and absolutely grateful I am for the creators of Google for creating a Samsung and iPhone app that both users can use FaceTime in and setting up stuff like meetings, video ideas, and even social media posts! Thank you for reading this review and I just want to say I am blown away by how phenomenal the creators of this app are. I love this app and I’m proud to say it!

My boyfriend has a Google Pixel and I have an iPhone, and this app is central to our relationship lol We send each other video messages throughout the day, and on nights we can’t be together we video call every night before bed. The video calling feature on its own is great, and we rarely have problems with quality. However, the video messaging is where this falls short. For one thing, it can take forever for the messages to load sometimes. For another, there are features available to him on his Pixel that I do not have but wish I did — namely, being able to flip the camera during a video message (I have to record an entire message either forward facing or self facing), and the ability to leave music running in the background, like Snapchat does (sometimes you want to send your boo a video of you singing along with a song!). Maybe these are features Google has decided to keep exclusive to their products, but I wish they wouldn’t. Also, speaking of the forward facing camera — it didn’t used to do this, but now it reverses the image! (Although the bf reports it shows up normal on his end.) It’s only happened recently so I’m hopeful it will be fixed soon. It makes it too disorienting for me to even bother using the forward facing camera.
It was you talked to your friends in groups ain’t gonna talk to all of your friends at the same time it’s so fun and everybody should get it I can talk to all my family at the same time and even when you have virtual Christmas you can talk to everybody they can all be at your virtual Christmas party and watch you open all of your presents you can see your mom your dad you can see everybody this is the best FaceTimeApp I have ever been on you can send messages just called regularly there’s filters so fun everybody should get it and if you have them in your contacts and they have Google duo then they can talk to you too and just like I said before you can talk to your family and friends whenever and if you can’t talk right now then when they call you can say remind me an hour in making groups is so fun like I don’t I love putting all of our friends together the one thing I wanna do is if you and it three other friends all fight together don’t put them in the same group but you can talk to just individuals two or two people it’s so fun it does glitch out sometimes But it is the best face timing app ever
I am still a bit new to this app thought not that new to video calling I was fortunate enough to be able experience it as far back as the early 1990s using radio shack technology. I would prefer a not so cookie cutter response as thought generated automation is so conformed on this type of review. Using this app to be able to experience and enjoy the usefulness and convenience of being able to see the person on the other end is great but I always wonder who else is watching and making a mess behind the scenes of are personal communication devices as privacy and piracy are a huge concern , as long as are personal welfare and information is safe beyond the scope of what myself and the individual on the other end of the camera are safe I would say this app is great and I enjoy it. If this app is going and spying on us well I would have to say I dislike it and would not use it. In the mean time I will continue to enjoy it and hope it does not become bugged and infected and strung together were many people begin to become locked into what other are doing or else it may have to be disassembled.
You guys need to work on your video quality with only one bar of Wi-Fi on Facebook the video call is still great you have to have a full signal of Wi-Fi to even get a crappy video on Google DuoAnd it’s still blurry and has a lot of digital squares in it even with a full signal and I have a mazing Internet I have Cox communication I pay for high-speed data the best package they have and every app I use has amazing quality with your app is the only one that is not that way you guys are worth millions of dollars you can afford to fix the situation but you guys choose to just take everybody’s money and not spend money unless you have too The biggest problem with every company in this entire world even companies that aren’t Internet related is the fact that every small company puts their heart and soul into financing the best thing they can for a little company until they get big once the company gets big they provide less and less effort financially to fix things because they’re filthy rich already
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 👉🏻👈🏻🥺
Dear Creators and Moderators of Google Meet, This app is phenomenal. It lets me talk with my friends who don’t have iPhones, and it’s a lovely way to communicate with other people. Although I experience some difficulties along the way, this glitch started happening to me today. Whenever I’d receive a call, and even though I excepted it, it would glitch it would kick me out of the call before I could even connect. I found this very frustrating and annoying that I couldn’t join the meet. Also, even when everyone else was in the car, it would say that none of them were on a meet. Also, when I started my own, it said it was ringing somebody, but it never actually was. It and when I tried to end the call, it wouldn’t let me. It kept making this weird sound. I would either need to close the tab or hit the X button in a completely different tab. Please help with this glitch. Kindest regards. -Lilcringe
This app is really bad sometimes but I really like it but the only problem I have with it is that if I want to do family mold it doesn’t work and then if I want to do something else doesn’t work either and like it’s so annoying and one timeI tried to do some thing and it just wouldn’t work correctly and like I want to figure out how to share my screen with then she told me to go to click on the three dots but I was on a phone call it really didn’t work and like all that showed me it was like three things that didn’t help me at all and then like I like the game is really good nothing bad about it it’s just that if your new to the app it’s hard But I would use Duo instead of other apps because other apps they can track you down and they can go through your Wi-Fi and you know how I can I just don’t like that so I like using this app but I would prefer something better though but this app is an amazing app Thank you so much to do a creators for creating such a good app that has high-quality and you can even FaceTime but yeah this app is amazing
Google Duo is an excellent video call app! Video reception is crisp clear and audio has excellent quality. The app makes it very easy to make video or audio only calls using your contacts. I use Google Duo on my IPhone to make calls to family members who have Androids phones, as Google Duo is cross-platform. The App is very compatible with IPhone users and does not cause any conflicts with FaceTime. When you view your contacts on IPhone you will see that you still have the option to use FaceTime or Google Duo. Having family members all over the country across the miles, Google Duo has been a lifesaver to keep in touch and video calls is the next best thing to seeing family members or friends in-person. The only downside is that I would like to use the Google Duo app for international video calls without worrying about if the international caller is billed for data time use or carrier charges.
First off I use this app all the time. It’s a fun way to talk to my friends and I’m able to video chat with ones that don’t have iPhones. I do have some issues though. 1: Whether I’m calling or using video there can be an echo or a 7-10 second delay with words/video. This can get really annoying when my friends and I are trying to talk but we either have to wait awhile to respond or you hear yourself talking back at you and you can’t hear the other person. 2: This just happened recently but it’s a major issue. Usually when you go onto the app there is a list of your most recent conversations. You can click on previous chats and look through them. Now mine doesn’t do this anymore. I don’t have a recent activity and when I have to talk to someone or find out if someone sent a message I have to go through ALL of my contacts, whether or not they have the app, and find the people I’ve talked with. This is really troublesome and I’d really like if this got fixed. 3: i wish there was a way to text or have group chat threads. I’ve been in groups using the app and it’s hard to follow the conversations using the notes or pictures that people send. I do like that we can do that but texting would be and easier way to send messages. Other then these issues the app is really good. I do use it all the time and highly recommend it for anyone who wants to talk to people without iPhones.
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!
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.
I love this app so much I use it to talk to my friend all the time! But there is a little problem. My audio stopped working so I left the call and then joined back and it still did it. So I thought you know deleting the app would be a good idea because I’ve done it many times before and it fixed all the problems! But when I went to go download it again it wouldn't let me! It said it’s not compatible with my device! I got really sad because most of my friends have androids so they FaceTime with me and I haven’t been able to call them for three days! All I ask is if you could update it to make it comparable with the IOS 15 update. My friend recently got the IOS 16 update and it is still comparable with her phone. But I updated my phone to the 15.7 update and I haven’t been able to get duo/meet since!
I like it that it has all video call services. You do provide privacy if not added, and if needed to call. It’s on point. Only problem is that as I’m calling I can’t snap a photo. I’d like that a lot more since I’m very nostalgic when it comes with memories. Only feedback I have is that, I used it so much and I’ve forgotten how to get around. So one, a Tutorial button if forgotten how and a little button to take photos, video of convo that I wanted to remember. But overall. You are on par with Apple, aside from group calling. You are on par with Skype aside from screen sharing. You are on par with discord. Just almost all expect chats. I understand this is for family or friends calls. I wondered how far it’d go if you expanded your world within google. There’s several apps I’m often confused with this to google hangouts. Thanks for taking your time to read this review and do hope that you take few things into consideration.
Important request! Please bring these filters back!
Google duo is an amazing source of communication between friends and family, and i’ve been using it for years—however, i have recently been saddened to discover that a few of my favorite hilarious filters were removed from the app!! Even if they might seem low quality or have bugs, that’s what makes them good filters!! The humor factor!!! My favorite filters that were recently removed include: The lips filter (it adds a red lipstick onto your face), the filter that inserts your face into an animation of a character swimming, and a filter similar to the previous where the character is running on a track. I have heavily enjoyed using these filters while calling my friends, laughing and joking throughout our week from these delightful add-ons to the app. My week has been saddened by a very large portion due to the recent removal of these filters, though…Please fix it!!
Yes, there are some good improvements here from the (THANKFULLY) still available original version. But the new version doesn’t have one of the most important features for iPad users. THIS VERSION DISABLES THE CAMERA ON IPAD SPLIT SCREEN VIEW! Why is this not in here? Being able to have notes up next to my video screen was why I started pushing over to use Google Meet over every other broadly available option in the first place. I can’t glance at my agenda, take notes at a meeting, or anything on this app with my video disappearing and my colleagues staring at a static profile picture. WHY? Until this feature is fixed/implemented, this app is USELESS and I have to keep using the original. Add all the other features, upgrades, improvements, and other awesome things you want, Google, but please don’t DROP important features like this. I don’t care if you have to disable lots of “extras” like funny filters, AR masks, effects, and the like when in split screen but crippling my ability to conduct or participate well in a meetings is dumbfounding.
Duo is great don’t get me wrong. I enjoy using it to talk to friends who use different devices as me. I use an iPhone and update the duo app and my phone when needed. I for some reason cannot ever get screen share! I open up the three dots with the options (in this order): Bluetooth, effects, portrait mode, and low light. I click around and swipe and never find screen share! I’m not sure if it’s because I am an iPhone user, but I go searching on Google and Safari for how to open share screen. It will say start call and click the three dots, so I do that. Then it says swipe left and you see screen share. Uh well I can’t swipe any directions! Please please tell me how to get screen share. I have even asked my friends as we were on a call to do a screen share and then show me how to do it. Please help me with this! No idea what to do or what I did wrong. Thank you for reading.

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 !!!!.
I mean the app is great sometimes but like when someone is on an airplane or something the quantity is just terrible I mean do they have to be so so so I don’t even know really. And then once the sound just cuts off and I have to shut my device down and do it all over again and it was just annoying. But I'm not sure if I have anything to do with Google duo I'm not sure if I head to update my device or if it was just a Google do a technical problem but I think I had to update my device because the same thing happened to FaceTime but anyway that was really annoying. And then they go and ask me how was the call or something like that and so I thought if I just wrote a review this would leave me alone. So this is my honest review and I hope you won’t ask me anything else like that that is also super annoying. 😑
So many issues. There is so much about this app that just makes me want to beat my iphone to the ground and then find the creator of this crappy garbage and rub their faces in the dirt and mop my bathroom floor with their hands and then make them eat their hands. That misery they would feel is what I feel when i try to use this app. I can't even talk to my friends without constant bugs and getting kicked off calls. The only good part of this app is the goofy filters and that's not even important. The budget for this app should be going towards making the app work, not having features that are intended to be used by 5 year olds and 80 year old grandmas when they click the wrong button because they don't know how to hang up. There are so many apps I would use instead of this, but I will admit that this is better than adobe connect. Congratulations. You earned two stars simply because it works sometimes.
I really like this app for my friends that don’t have the same phone as me but there are a few things that can be annoying to a lot of people. They don’t specifically annoy me too much but they are frustrating sometimes. So sometimes I’ll be on the call and all of a sudden the whole screen goes green for like half a second. I don’t know why it does this, I thought it might have been my internet or something but then my friend said she started noticing that happen to her too. Another thing is, sometimes the sound cuts out a bit and freezes I’m not sure if it’s the app or just my internet though. Another thing is sometimes the mute button goes on for no reason and I hadn’t pressed it at all. My friend also said that was happening to her too. I hope this review was helpful for you!
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.
Ok, to start off, this app is amazing! I use it everyday with my friends. I definitely 100% recommend this app. But there is one thing I wish I could do; zoom in and out. I like to sit in a chair I have in my bedroom while on the phone, and my dog has a spot on the other side of the room where she likes to nap. My friends love to see my dog so I always show her on camera, but in order to see her good, I have to stand up and walk to her. Which doesn’t seem that hard, but I feel like if you use this app a lot, you have tried to show something off and I think that it would be way easier if I could zoom in. But whether this gets added in or not, I’m very happy with this app and I hope that it does well business-wise. If you read this, thanks!
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!
GoogleDuo has been extremely useful during the last year and a half for video calls. I have an IPhone but during the Pandemic I have needed a solid cross platform app that I could use with the non IOS users I need to talk with via video call. GoogleDuo has met that need and has become even better over the past year and a half. The video quality is noticeably better. I have very few dropped calls compared to FaceTime over the same connections. The cost is of course great and it is quite stable in start up and in use. FaceTime more than occasionally will need to be shut down and reopened due to ‘internal failure’. That never happens with GoogleDuo. Thanks for producing a great app. Jim S.
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.
I love this app because it is so much fun and I can talk to my friends that I’m not able to FaceTime with and it’s kind of stupid how different phones do not allow you to have the authority to call FaceTime your friends that have different type of phone Apple phones more like iPhones allow you to FaceTime your friends but Samsung galaxy phones do not allow you to FaceTime your friends that’s why my review is so much better with this app so I will tell everybody to get this app it’s the best one ever please get it if you don’t you’re gonna make my poor cat die and if you do get it then you’re going to help her live a long and happy life goodbye friends I took this all in one minute byeeeeeeeeeeee
I despise this app! Duo was great, and this one does not work!
I have been trying without success for almost two months now to get this app to work! And it won’t! I continually delete the app, reload it and try again, with no success. I try to establish calling and it says unable too. I have followed multiple recommendations I have found on line and none have helped. I am extremely frustrated as Google Duo is how I FaceTime my children while on the road. I now have to use google meet and it’s crushing me not being able to see their cute little faces. Unfortunately, this is the app their mother uses and as a divorced family, I am at the mercy of her and what she uses. The kids on her end can’t get it to work either, they too are extremely frustrated and saddened. I do not know what to do at this point. Duo was perfect and I never had problems with it, no matter where I was in the country. Please fix this app. God bless and stay strong!
Overall great platform and FUN! Really enjoy the backgrounds and my favorites “Panda -sprinkle 💕💕on my head⁉️”🤣 ohhh and the “Lightbulb😃” so clever! Hot dog!! I got it⁉️ Connectivity has been hit or miss and unlike “FB/Messi’Ngerr” you can not send multiple pictures at once!?? Unless I hadn’t learned yet, which is what you’ll need to be ready to do. Yes. User friendly only after you master the variety of long, short .. wait there’s a short cut🧐.. 🙄🤓 I had a headache teaching a friend- using only my screenshots and writing step by step instructions (like reading hieroglyphics) as they were not able to access their video, microphone is missing or muted⁉️ “Rut-Roww shaggy, I’m about to change my “Title⁉️”🤨 let’s do better Google, surely FB MESSY and “❓’s👩🏻💻” isn’t all we have⁉️
Me and my entire family had androids for the past decade. I recently decided to switch to iPhone when I moved across the country for the military. I didn’t realize I wouldn’t be able to FaceTime with my family anymore so I downloaded this google meet app that always came with my androids over the years. The quality is mostly good depending on the service obviously, but my family cannot initiate a video chat with me and it’s frustrating. They’ll call me through the app and it’ll ring on their end but it doesn’t go through on my end until they regular call me and ask me why I didn’t pick up. That’s the only downside. It’s not just with bad service it’s 100% of the time. Im glad I’m able to use it though ☺️
So I got this app December 3 the day after I got my iPhone so I was excited to see what it will bring. And yeah I liked the app it helped me stay in touch with my bestie cause she barley moved away 😭 and she has a Samsung so she can’t FaceTime with a iPhone so this app is amazing it is really good you can go to affects and mess around and you can capture moments and have so much fun the only thing that I kinda have wrong with the app 🤔 is that it freezes 🥶not actually freezes just the camera it only happens when WiFi is down no other problems I really recommend it please get it thank for creating this app and please put this one at the top so people can read it
The reason I give this a to is because sometimes you don’t have volume sometimes it glitches sometimes it just randomly hangs up there’s a lot of little issues that need to be fixed with Google Duo I mean once in a blue moon it’ll be working just fine and what’s the point of giving readings like how was your call good or bad and if I say bad it never fixes the glitches so I’m kinda like why would you ask me at the end of my conversation if it was good or bad because every time I rate the next calls never fixed or better like it glitches every single night I use this app to talk to my boyfriend my best friend my friend out of state and I have issues all the time just saying that you guys should fix the glitch it would make this app way better especially if I didn’t lose volume and I couldn’t hear or it didn’t glitch
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!
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!!
You don’t like people who have androids don’t have FaceTime in it’s really hard to get in contact with family or friends. This apps really helps me understand how there’s other apps and other ways to contact with your family members or friends, or any kind of people that have androids even iPhones can get this this is how I found this is you should definitely download it. I really love this app and it is so. And you get to send your friends and family videos and emojis which is so fun download this game right now takes a few click of a button and to get this in your phone it’s very fun to do I love this game Kendall White. ❤️❤️❤️❤️💡❤️
I this is amazing there’s just like two things. First can you make it so you could see when your video messages are read because I want to know if my friends read it or I have to call them and tell them, Second and you make it so that if you want to remove someone from your group chat that you made you could because I by mistake put some people in the group chat that I don’t want. And the last thing can you please make the app so that you don’t have to use it with internet because sometimes I want to talk to my friends and I have no internet so I have to wait till I get home to call them and see there video messages so can you please please fix it!
I love Google duo my friend has a Samsung phone and I have a iPhone and I could FaceTime her ever and I was voice calling and she sent me this app it is amazing and she said now we can see each other and face time I love it and how I can see her the only sad thing is I can’t share my screen but she and everyone else can do idk why but it just won’t let me but other wise I love this app I get to FaceTime friends that don’t have iPhones I get to see my grandparents through FaceTime too!! So thanks to this wonderful app I get to talk to family and friends! I give it 9.5/10 I 100% recommended getting if you can’t FaceTime friends bc of they don’t have or you don’t have the same phone so get this app it’s a life changer!!! ❤️
Thia is a great app! It allows me to video chat with friends that don’t have apple phones and cannot facetime. The only thing that will not make this review 5 stars is that when I went call my friend that had Google Duo if said they did not have it and that I would have to send a suggestion to them to have them download the app. I myself watched them download the app and I know for a fact they did not delete it so I want to know why it said they did not have Google Duo and why I was unable to call them. This only happened one time and the app has gone perfect since with clear calls and direct messages that are always delivered. This is a wonderful app but I have no idea what happened that time.
So don’t get me wrong I do like the app bc my friend has a Samsung so she cant use facetime so that awesome but when me and her are on call the video freezes all the time second it drains all of my battery bc I will have full percent and then in less than 5 min I already have 10% and I know it is not my phone bc before I used this app my battery wouldn’t drain for hours and I even have low power mode on third the audio is horrible like horrible and this isn’t the last thing but this last complaint I am going to put in the review my phone in the like 4 years that I have had my phone it has never overheated but when I am on the phone with my friend on only this app and charging my phone it always overheats for both of us and I know it is only this app bc when I am on any other app even on the phone on a different app it never overheats
This is one of there most under rated apps of 2020. I know it’s very simple and doesn’t do much. However it’s super simple to use to the point where even a little kids can use it. And he usually works very well if you have a half decent Internet connection. I mean you can be in the car cruising down the Dallas freeway and still have a decent enough connection. At this point in the Covid crisis I’ve probably used about six different video talk apps. From zoom to FaceTime to duo and a couple others I can’t even remember the name of other than teams. And this just fits in there nicely for simple meetings. So anyway it’s just quite the app.
If your friends or your family members have a different friend than you and you don’t wanna download the WhatsApp app or you don’t wanna download what they have Google duo you can share your screen you could draw with them and you can turn on captions if you’re hard of hearing and you can even call your friends you can put on filters you can’t and have a phone number or do you have an email or you can have anything you don’t just need a phone number so get it it is amazing I love it my best friend has a different phone than me and we can’t text I can send filters videos Photos so get it if you can
I am new to Chat as well as Meet. However I’ve use Voice in the past. Somehow they seem to work together but I’m not sure. When I was first requested to download the Chat app my friends were calling me on video chat but on my iPhone I could not find the icon to chat it took me over a week to figure out that I need it to use Meet in conjunction with Chat and somehow they just worked together. Perhaps if they could be a very clear statement that chat does not allow for video calls on some devices it would save a lot of time and maybe even frustration. Someway somehow chat in Meet is working now but I don’t understand why or how.
Have loved using Google Duo to video call my fam members who are not on iPhone. It’s easy enough for my mom to use and she calls to see my kids daily. After the latest update, my rear-facing camera image is ALWAYS mirrored. There is no setting in iPhone or the Duo app to change this and it is INCREDIBLY ANNOYING. Have you ever tried to point a camera at something and track it while the image is mirrored? It take a little extra brainpower under normal circumstances…as a sleep deprived mom it is a monumental task. I have two kids under two who want to run and jump and show Grandma all sorts of fun things and I can’t keep up with them on screen ever since this setting changed. CHANGE IT BACK! Or at the very least, give an option to change it to a preference. Also if you’re a person who wants a mirrored image when using an outward facing camera, you’re a monster. Lol
Good but I’m not a big fan of how do you like you know click on the screen you can get big you but it’s gonna make the other person in on the call small and I want it to be real I have a big screen of me and a big screen of her it’s because I feel like it’s too small to see and I don’t like it and I know you can do that with calls chat thing but what if we doing something nasty and then someone joined but isn’t supposed to join most of my friends don’t have Apple phones but overall great quality and I like the filters and all that stuff it’s good I love it except for that one problem and I hate how sometimes also the voice will really speed up that gets annoying and please do stop asking for the rating it gets annoying
I’ve been using Google Duo since last year’s pandemic to teach piano. I’ve been teaching piano for over 30 yrs, but had never taught online. A fellow teacher recommended this app, and it’s been awesome! I’ve even taught piano while traveling in a car, when someone else (!) was driving. I love how there’s no delay between the student’s finger pushing down on a key & the sound the key makes from their piano or keyboard. While nothing replaces teaching in person, this has been a wonderful & welcome close second. I now have students who prefer using Google Duo, because of the convenience of not having to drive to their lesson. Thanks, Google Duo!
I downloaded this app and the first time it was like amazing. I love this app so much and but one thing I don’t like about this app is that I need to hang up to send messages or to look at the messages that’s the only thing but I would like I would love it if you guys can I please fix that and like let us be able to like call and look at the messages at the same time and another thing is that for me it doesn’t let me send the pictures I tried to like send a picture a picture from my album and it didn’t let me so if you guys could please pick that fix that but but anyways, this is a very good app
Overall so happy to be able to complete video calls with my sister clear across the country. I am used to using FaceTime for everyone else in my life, but she has a Samsung, and this finally made it possible to see her. Overall great quality, but sometimes the call will drop just sitting still in our respective houses and when we try to call back multiple times, it just says “connecting” with no explanation. An error message or explanation would be a very helpful modification. I have no use for all the stickers and funny faces, but after our father passed away, group calling has been very important. Thank you for this platform.
So guys I love this app but when I have math classes it’s glitching so if your reading this please stop the glich I don’t mind glitch’s but it’s to much I can’t hear my teacher and when she’s wearing headphones I can’t hear her but she can hear me perfectly so please make the glich stop also one more thing the screen is not clear like sometimes her video is off and I can’t see her video idk why but she does not know why to but when her camera is on it’s not clear and I wish the the camera is clear but it’s ok if you can’t do it and sorry If this was to much it’s my problems of this app and hopefully you can do the things I said but if you can’t it’s ok thanks for reading this
