Google to launch web version of Duo video calling service soon
Date: 27 January 19
Google's one of the popular app Duo is set to join web version for video chat in coming weeks, 9to5Google has reported. “This development ultimately means a much wider reach of devices that can access the growing service. Google Duo has, up to now, only been available in the form of an app from the Google Play Store or the iOS App Store, and on its Smart Display platform,” report.
Also, the web version of Google Duo said to work with Google Chrome browser as well as other browsers too. “It’s unclear as of now how much of the current functionality from the mobile version of Duo will be available on the web at launch, but it’s likely to, at the very least, include fundamental Duo features such as ‘knock knock’ and the ability to leave video messages,” the report added.
For now, the upcoming version is said to support up to 7 people at a time. Users need to first create a group with the contacts they wish to video chat with on the platform and then they can start a call with all at the same time.
