From the Lab: Google Duo

Hands-on testing of a free mobile video chat app and service

In December 2016, the WR test team had the opportunity to test Google Duo - a free mobile video calling app.  Essentially, Duo is Google's response to Apple FaceTime.  Pros and cons include:

  • Duo is available for both Android and iOS (better than FaceTime)
  • Duo is available for mobile users only (not as good as FaceTime)

To be clear - like FaceTime, Duo is NOT for advanced corporate users.  It offers a very limited feature-set, but what it does it does quite well.

 From the Lab - Overall Rating 3.75 (out of 5)
