Google announced Wednesday Link between Duo, its video calling application and Meet, its video conferencing application.
Later this year, the Duo processor will be renamed Google Meet, creating a free video communication service through Google.
Before renaming the Duo app, Google will add the features currently available in Google Meet. Duo users, among others, can schedule meetings, customize virtual backgrounds, chat during appointments, and use real-time topics.
Contacts and messages will not disappear
However, Duo users can be confident that existing calling features will not disappear, including the ability to initiate a video call using a phone number or email address. Chat history, contacts and messages are constantly stored in the app and there is no new app to download.
“This integrated experience will provide users with a single solution for video calling and meeting people from all walks of life,” wrote Google Vice President Javier Soltero in a blog post.
In recent years, as the Govt-19 epidemic has prompted people to search for new communication tools, Google has increased its investment in its video communication and digital collaboration tools. For the Duo, Google recently introduced new features such as group calls of up to 32 people, doodles in family mode and fun effects and video calls on tablets, smart devices and devices. Google has released over 100 features and enhancements for Meet, which will be available for free to all users by 2020.
