Individual and group calls with Google Duo

With the Google Duo app, you can call other users of the application – with or without video. Calls with Google Duo are made either via WiFi or your mobile data connection. The latter may incur costs. The video telephony app does not need a high network quality; a 2G network should be sufficient for a stable phone call.

Calls made with Google Duo are end-to-end encrypted. In addition to everyday needs between two call partners, you can also start group calls with 32 participants. Each participant must have the app installed for this. A unique feature of the application is the “cuckoo” function: If this is switched on, your call partner will see a live image of you even before he accepts the call. The prerequisite for this is that he has saved you as a contact.

The “cuckoo” function can be found in the call settings of Google Duo.

Google Duo for Android, iOS, and browsers

You don’t need a Google account to use the free app on your smartphone or another mobile device. All you need is a telephone number and a mobile phone to receive an SMS for configuration. The duo runs on Android devices and iOS devices such as the iPad or iPhone.

To use the app on multiple devices, you need a Google account. Then you can also use the application on your computer. On the PC, Google Duo runs in Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Opera, and Safari. However, group calls are currently only possible in the current version of Google Chrome.

In addition to making video calls in Google Duo, you can also send voice, pictures, video messages, and notes to your contacts.
