Google has announced that it plans to merge its two video calling applications, Duo and Meet, into a single platform. The company stated that it had invested heavily in Google Duo and Google Meet to assist users who rely on our technology for video calls and meetings.
“In the coming weeks, we are adding all the Google Meet features to the Duo app, so users can easily schedule a video meeting at a time that works for everyone or continue using video calling to instantly connect with a person or group,” the company said in a statement.
“Later this year, we will rename the Duo app to Google Meet, our single video communications service across Google that is available to everyone at no-cost,” it added.
Users will be able to use a single service for video calling and meetings with people across their lives due to this integrated experience.
For customers who use Duo as their cross-platform video calling software service, the business has also added additional capabilities such as group calls for up to 32 people, the addition of doodles, and video calling on tablets, foldables, smart devices, and TVs.
The company claimed it had improved quality and reliability to keep meetings safe and productive while introducing new moderation controls.
