Burnout Bruce - Duo Review
I am still a bit new to this app thought not that new to video calling I was fortunate enough to be able experience it as far back as the early 1990s using radio shack technology. I would prefer a not so cookie cutter response as thought generated automation is so conformed on this type of review. Using this app to be able to experience and enjoy the usefulness and convenience of being able to see the person on the other end is great but I always wonder who else is watching and making a mess behind the scenes of are personal communication devices as privacy and piracy are a huge concern , as long as are personal welfare and information is safe beyond the scope of what myself and the individual on the other end of the camera are safe I would say this app is great and I enjoy it. If this app is going and spying on us well I would have to say I dislike it and would not use it. In the mean time I will continue to enjoy it and hope it does not become bugged and infected and strung together were many people begin to become locked into what other are doing or else it may have to be disassembled.
Gacha lover :D - Good and now it’s getting on my nerves 😅
Ok so I have had this app for like, a few days? Not sure. But I haven’t had it for a month of course, I’ve had it for a while though, and so far nothing had gone wrong, until like 30m to 1hr ago where it wouldn’t let me open my camera in the settings, idk if this is ur fault or apples fault, and I’m not making this a hateful review, I just need y’all to see this cause I need help, so I’m trying to turn on my camera and allow u to get to my contacts, and in the settings it doesn’t say that, it just says “Notifications
Siri & Search
Background App Refresh” and that’s it, their isn’t a button to let me turn on my camera and allow u to get to my contacts, so I’m just wondering if theirs something I need to turn on or something u guys need to fix, I think abt hwo to fix this and realize that I prob need to update the app, and I do, so I update it but it still doesn’t work, so now I can’t get access to my camera or access yall to my contacts, just asking for help! ^^
Jfjfjdndk - I love it but a few things.....
I absolutely love this app and I use it daily!! My friend has a Samsung and I have an iPhone so I can FaceTime her with this app and also send videos and fun things like that, one thing I’ll consider is that I cannot flip my camera when I’m doing a message while my other friend can... please fix this
Edit: I just updated Duo today and I do t have the choice for Family or the doodle things. A lot of other things are updated but the one I am most excited about is not showing up!!! Does anyone know how I can fix this?
Edit #2: So, I am guessing that a lot of people have the same problem. I can’t share my screen or use the Family or Doodle options. Otherwise I love the app and it is very very nice to have. I have an iPhone 8 and I read that it needs to be a newer iOS phone. I am really bummed about this. My friend has a Samsung and she has the doodle and family options and I don’t. This sort of makes me annoyed when I want to share my screen but I can’t. Could you guys pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase fix this if you can 👉🏻👈🏻🥺
CarolRobert - Google Due - Excellent Video Call App
Google Duo is an excellent video call app! Video reception is crisp clear and audio has excellent quality. The app makes it very easy to make video or audio only calls using your contacts. I use Google Duo on my IPhone to make calls to family members who have Androids phones, as Google Duo is cross-platform. The App is very compatible with IPhone users and does not cause any conflicts with FaceTime. When you view your contacts on IPhone you will see that you still have the option to use FaceTime or Google Duo. Having family members all over the country across the miles, Google Duo has been a lifesaver to keep in touch and video calls is the next best thing to seeing family members or friends in-person. The only downside is that I would like to use the Google Duo app for international video calls without worrying about if the international caller is billed for data time use or carrier charges.
Lady Itonhead - This app drives me INSANE
My video freezes when I walk away from WiFi. That’s not the problem though. It used to do that to me all the time on this app. But now when I’m still on DUO and I turn the WiFi off, the video stays frozen even after WiFi is off. I still can hear the person I’m talking to but their picture is frozen. Then when I go to hang up the phone so they can call back, DUO doesn’t let me answer. I hit the accept call button for the face to face call and the app shuts down and disappears on me. I have to open up my app drawer where all my previous apps that I haven’t closed out yet are, and it’s there. I push on it to open the app and screen back up and try to answer and yet again it disappears. I again have to search for it in my unclosed app drawer and try to hit accept video call. I do that a couple times, it disappears on me a few more times, then finally I close out the app because it won’t let me answer the call. After closing DUO and all the other apps I had open I try yet again to answer and it won’t let me. I literally have to wait a few minutes to even TRY AGAIN to answer video call on here. It’s driving me NUTS! Fix! So frustrating! If it’s not one thing it’s always another!
Rily cool - Love it, use it everyday, amazing
Ok, to start off, this app is amazing! I use it everyday with my friends. I definitely 100% recommend this app. But there is one thing I wish I could do; zoom in and out. I like to sit in a chair I have in my bedroom while on the phone, and my dog has a spot on the other side of the room where she likes to nap. My friends love to see my dog so I always show her on camera, but in order to see her good, I have to stand up and walk to her. Which doesn’t seem that hard, but I feel like if you use this app a lot, you have tried to show something off and I think that it would be way easier if I could zoom in. But whether this gets added in or not, I’m very happy with this app and I hope that it does well business-wise. If you read this, thanks!
SLawton78 - Puts a smile on your face & twinkle in your eye
In this day and age, communication is no longer a simple phone call. So with the next generation growing up with all of this new technology at their fingertips, they learn to manage with bad connections, Skippy voice and dropped video feed. I am old school! If I’m on a video chat and the service drops or the phone is choppy or the app blinks in and out then I’m mad...I’m highly upset! I would just rather dial the digits and hear a voice.
I have recently switched to the Apple line of cell phones. And have had a little experience with FaceTime. I don’t feel like it’s any better than Facebook messenger which is a joke when it comes to video calling. The Google duo on the other hand has exceptional exceptional video feed message feed and it really does put a smile on my face and a twinkle in my eye to pick up my phone and have a video message that I can see just as clear as if they were standing in front of me from one of my children it just makes my day.
Jupiiter077 - I like it
I like it that it has all video call services. You do provide privacy if not added, and if needed to call. It’s on point. Only problem is that as I’m calling I can’t snap a photo. I’d like that a lot more since I’m very nostalgic when it comes with memories. Only feedback I have is that, I used it so much and I’ve forgotten how to get around. So one, a Tutorial button if forgotten how and a little button to take photos, video of convo that I wanted to remember. But overall. You are on par with Apple, aside from group calling. You are on par with Skype aside from screen sharing. You are on par with discord. Just almost all expect chats. I understand this is for family or friends calls. I wondered how far it’d go if you expanded your world within google. There’s several apps I’m often confused with this to google hangouts. Thanks for taking your time to read this review and do hope that you take few things into consideration.
WafflepopTheWeirdo - Important request! Please bring these filters back!
Google duo is an amazing source of communication between friends and family, and i’ve been using it for years—however, i have recently been saddened to discover that a few of my favorite hilarious filters were removed from the app!! Even if they might seem low quality or have bugs, that’s what makes them good filters!! The humor factor!!! My favorite filters that were recently removed include: The lips filter (it adds a red lipstick onto your face), the filter that inserts your face into an animation of a character swimming, and a filter similar to the previous where the character is running on a track. I have heavily enjoyed using these filters while calling my friends, laughing and joking throughout our week from these delightful add-ons to the app. My week has been saddened by a very large portion due to the recent removal of these filters, though…Please fix it!!
Elephant #8 - Screen Share
Duo is great don’t get me wrong. I enjoy using it to talk to friends who use different devices as me. I use an iPhone and update the duo app and my phone when needed. I for some reason cannot ever get screen share! I open up the three dots with the options (in this order): Bluetooth, effects, portrait mode, and low light. I click around and swipe and never find screen share! I’m not sure if it’s because I am an iPhone user, but I go searching on Google and Safari for how to open share screen. It will say start call and click the three dots, so I do that. Then it says swipe left and you see screen share. Uh well I can’t swipe any directions! Please please tell me how to get screen share. I have even asked my friends as we were on a call to do a screen share and then show me how to do it. Please help me with this! No idea what to do or what I did wrong. Thank you for reading.

Cabeza7777 - Sound issues
Ok so I use this app a lot, and I mean a lot to talk to people, mainly because I have friends who don’t have the same kind of phone as me and stuff like that. It works great most of the time but there have been times where I’m trying to call someone and it won’t go through for them and they try and it won’t go through for me, or if I/the other person try to call each other if I try and answer it won’t let me, and same with them. Also sometimes I can’t even call the person! It just sends me straight to making a little video message. And, now it is sound I have turned my phone on and off and same as the other person we have tried EVERYTHING...well mot deleting the app, but I seriously don’t want to feel like I have to resort to deleting and reinstalling it. Not that it’s much work it’s just I feel these issues need to be fixed, I hope someone sees this because it is beyond annoying.
Cotton Candi 64 - Good reception !!!!.
My family member lives in Fredericksburg Virginia and I live in Washington DC the reception was so good I almost feel like they we’re sitting in the same room with me. I have a iPhone and as everyone knows that comes with FaceTime but My Family don’t and thisService is just as good if not sometimes betterThen a iPhone so if you don’t have Duo you definitely need to download it on your phone so you can reach out to your family and Friends.I would definitely recommend Google Duo to everyone .So don’t wait download so you can start having fun like I am !!!!!!.Tomorrow we’re having a Duo PartyWhat we’re going to be listening to music have a nice snacks and drinking a few cocktails don’t be left out You ,Your Family and Your friends can have the same kind of Party !!!!.
Hdhsbejjsnsisnakowndbd - Advice
You guys need to work on your video quality with only one bar of Wi-Fi on Facebook the video call is still great you have to have a full signal of Wi-Fi to even get a crappy video on Google DuoAnd it’s still blurry and has a lot of digital squares in it even with a full signal and I have a mazing Internet I have Cox communication I pay for high-speed data the best package they have and every app I use has amazing quality with your app is the only one that is not that way you guys are worth millions of dollars you can afford to fix the situation but you guys choose to just take everybody’s money and not spend money unless you have too The biggest problem with every company in this entire world even companies that aren’t Internet related is the fact that every small company puts their heart and soul into financing the best thing they can for a little company until they get big once the company gets big they provide less and less effort financially to fix things because they’re filthy rich already
Bugonica - Good app but a few downsides…
I really like this app for my friends that don’t have the same phone as me but there are a few things that can be annoying to a lot of people. They don’t specifically annoy me too much but they are frustrating sometimes. So sometimes I’ll be on the call and all of a sudden the whole screen goes green for like half a second. I don’t know why it does this, I thought it might have been my internet or something but then my friend said she started noticing that happen to her too. Another thing is, sometimes the sound cuts out a bit and freezes I’m not sure if it’s the app or just my internet though. Another thing is sometimes the mute button goes on for no reason and I hadn’t pressed it at all. My friend also said that was happening to her too. I hope this review was helpful for you!
Jim Snow - Solid program for video calls.
GoogleDuo has been extremely useful during the last year and a half for video calls. I have an IPhone but during the Pandemic I have needed a solid cross platform app that I could use with the non IOS users I need to talk with via video call. GoogleDuo has met that need and has become even better over the past year and a half. The video quality is noticeably better. I have very few dropped calls compared to FaceTime over the same connections. The cost is of course great and it is quite stable in start up and in use. FaceTime more than occasionally will need to be shut down and reopened due to ‘internal failure’. That never happens with GoogleDuo. Thanks for producing a great app.
Rtdf - Okay.. but a couple little thing!
So I just got duo a couple days ago because my friend can’t FaceTime on her phone so we tried this. When I first got in the app it was very very confusing! I had no idea what I was doing maybe it’s cause I just got it! But I thought it would be a little easier! Second when I finally got on a call with my friends the audio is awful! I could hear a thing and it kept on freezing and breaking up and sometimes we would have to leave the call then I can’t join back unless they ring me! And I would like where I can see my friends the whole time! Because on my phone (iPhone 11) you can’t go out of the app and see them! But on the other hand on my friends phone (some none apple)she can go out of the app and see us! Please take this to mind! I think if all these changed this could be the one of the best apps!
M. Piela - Phenomenal call quality
Downloaded this app because I have ZERO cell service in my house and apple didn’t enable WiFi calling. So instead of stepping outside in the rain or freezing weather whenever someone wanted to call me at home, Duo has solved that. Call audio is the clearest I have ever heard on a phone call, like the person is on the other side of your phone talking at your ear. I have strong WiFi so I can’t say how it would perform if WiFi is spotty. I noticed that when you are not on WiFi and take a duo call over your cell service there is a bit of a delay between accepting the call and when the caller can hear you which can lead to some confusion, but still great call quality. Very simple interface, no bells and whistles, just works, and works great.
Celiamia31 - Pretty good app but many complaints
So don’t get me wrong I do like the app bc my friend has a Samsung so she cant use facetime so that awesome but when me and her are on call the video freezes all the time second it drains all of my battery bc I will have full percent and then in less than 5 min I already have 10% and I know it is not my phone bc before I used this app my battery wouldn’t drain for hours and I even have low power mode on third the audio is horrible like horrible and this isn’t the last thing but this last complaint I am going to put in the review my phone in the like 4 years that I have had my phone it has never overheated but when I am on the phone with my friend on only this app and charging my phone it always overheats for both of us and I know it is only this app bc when I am on any other app even on the phone on a different app it never overheats
Najwah l - App is so cool
Oh my God I could call my friend I can play Roblox but only you can change for Apple iPads to share their screen because I can’t see my screen on my Apple iPad I can only share my screen on my Samsung so please can you change this app is so cool I get to share my screen and play Roblox with my friend Addi oh my God it is so cool I love this app it’s so good oh my God I just can’t believe this I can’t believe this thing oh my GodI love this app is so cool please make more please I love you Google please make more make more please I got to talk to my friends for more like an hour my mom had it on her phone her old phone and now her phone is mine and I can talk to my friends think it’s fair my screen play Roblox it’s so cool yeah I love this app
Bestbasketballplayerever2345 - Get this app it is sssoooooo good
So I got this app December 3 the day after I got my iPhone so I was excited to see what it will bring. And yeah I liked the app it helped me stay in touch with my bestie cause she barley moved away 😭 and she has a Samsung so she can’t FaceTime with a iPhone so this app is amazing it is really good you can go to affects and mess around and you can capture moments and have so much fun the only thing that I kinda have wrong with the app 🤔 is that it freezes 🥶not actually freezes just the camera it only happens when WiFi is down no other problems I really recommend it please get it thank for creating this app and please put this one at the top so people can read it
Strip Weathers (Dinoco King) - Very good video calling app
My mom is Deaf and so we have used Duo to communicate when we are not at home together, especially since I have an iPhone and she has a Samsung. In my family, we have used many video chatting apps but none have worked as great or smoothly as Duo, especially since there is the option to leave a video message! One feature that I wish the app had is to mute the other person— sometimes when I am on a call with my mom, I am in a public place, such as at a grocery store or salon, and I have to ask my mom to mute herself on the phone since lowering the volume and turning the ringer off from my phone does not actually turn the volume off. Other than that, Duo is really good for video calls!
Gmags23 - Great app, but drains battery
This is a great app and all, and I love it, but I was on it with my friend for about 5 minutes, and my battery totally almost died. Before I started this call I was at about 50%, but I had to end it because my phone was at 1%. I told my friend about it though, and she said her battery wasn’t dying at all. It may just be the phone company though because she has a Samsung and I have an Apple. Trick for Apple users: if you power your phone off, wait ten seconds, and then power it back on, it gains a lot of battery. I like now that you can do group chats. That’s a cool new feature that was just added. Also, I can Google Duo my friends that have Samsung’s. I love that you can send videos and I just love it!!
Game_lover€3 - Just three things
I this is amazing there’s just like two things. First can you make it so you could see when your video messages are read because I want to know if my friends read it or I have to call them and tell them, Second and you make it so that if you want to remove someone from your group chat that you made you could because I by mistake put some people in the group chat that I don’t want. And the last thing can you please make the app so that you don’t have to use it with internet because sometimes I want to talk to my friends and I have no internet so I have to wait till I get home to call them and see there video messages so can you please please fix it!
Rezeski - Under rated
This is one of there most under rated apps of 2020. I know it’s very simple and doesn’t do much. However it’s super simple to use to the point where even a little kids can use it. And he usually works very well if you have a half decent Internet connection. I mean you can be in the car cruising down the Dallas freeway and still have a decent enough connection. At this point in the Covid crisis I’ve probably used about six different video talk apps. From zoom to FaceTime to duo and a couple others I can’t even remember the name of other than teams. And this just fits in there nicely for simple meetings. So anyway it’s just quite the app.
Littlebirdey - I dont know if this is a samsung update
First, the app is amazing it lets me facetime people on different phones so i can see my friend, and my friend looked in the extras yo get a effect and she saw the screen share button, now i would love to do that to though no complaints i don’t know if this is a coming update to all phones or only spacific phones or if its just an app she has to allow her to record her screen while showing me it but the quaity is very bad, its very low quality and i cant read anything and she starts to lag and gets cut off and speeds up alot, although all that its a great app i reccomend you to get it if your looking for an app like this.
Hleahd - Excellent app!
I’ve been using Google Duo since last year’s pandemic to teach piano. I’ve been teaching piano for over 30 yrs, but had never taught online. A fellow teacher recommended this app, and it’s been awesome! I’ve even taught piano while traveling in a car, when someone else (!) was driving. I love how there’s no delay between the student’s finger pushing down on a key & the sound the key makes from their piano or keyboard. While nothing replaces teaching in person, this has been a wonderful & welcome close second. I now have students who prefer using Google Duo, because of the convenience of not having to drive to their lesson. Thanks, Google Duo!
🌊🥀🍂🌻cloudy🌻🍂🥀🌊 - It’s ok
Good but I’m not a big fan of how do you like you know click on the screen you can get big you but it’s gonna make the other person in on the call small and I want it to be real I have a big screen of me and a big screen of her it’s because I feel like it’s too small to see and I don’t like it and I know you can do that with calls chat thing but what if we doing something nasty and then someone joined but isn’t supposed to join most of my friends don’t have Apple phones but overall great quality and I like the filters and all that stuff it’s good I love it except for that one problem and I hate how sometimes also the voice will really speed up that gets annoying and please do stop asking for the rating it gets annoying
Mikayla lanni - The google duo app that is amazing
I love google duo because I can call people on audio and video and my audio calls on my texts are broken so are use Google Duo because a lot of my mom‘s friends and my family members have Google duo and it’s really easy to call them and I love this app because it’s much easier to call people on the cooler effects on this app and this is a very cool app because you can send people text messages and voice messages you can call them on audio face video and it’s like the best app I ever used and FaceTime is good too but I like this app better and I would prefer it for my mom and dad and my rest of my family
Ljp63 - Connect with people who don’t have i-phones!
Overall so happy to be able to complete video calls with my sister clear across the country. I am used to using FaceTime for everyone else in my life, but she has a Samsung, and this finally made it possible to see her. Overall great quality, but sometimes the call will drop just sitting still in our respective houses and when we try to call back multiple times, it just says “connecting” with no explanation. An error message or explanation would be a very helpful modification.
I have no use for all the stickers and funny faces, but after our father passed away, group calling has been very important.
Thank you for this platform.
Ohlivia_W - Integral part of my long-distance relationship
The internet and cell service at my apartment is spotty at best, and my long-distance boyfriend and I had been continuously frustrated by this as it was difficult for us to skype, FaceTime, or Facebook messenger video call, and actually hold a conversation and be able to see each other, and even regular voice calls would drop or be noisy. Duo somehow has absolutely none of the problems of the other services, and my boyfriend and I are so happy that we can finally hold a conversation like we’re right next to each other instead of nearly 1000 miles apart. Since downloading the app, we haven’t bothered using anything else.
# punk - It’s amazing
We just grew up together This app is amazing I got to talk to my cousin that I haven’t seen in years wow I saw her just a little bit ago but before that I need to see her for years and I got to talk to my mom when she was going to West Virginia with her other boyfriend wow her boyfriend now not as your boyfriend but I got to talk to her while she was gone and not visiting us and this app is just so perfect I get to talk to family members I haven’t seen ever or that I don’t get to see all the time this is amazing I think God for this app and I think you business app I think this after everything that I’ve done to me and let me talk to my cousin we were
Kel_open_the_door - PUT NEW COLORS AND BRUSHS
Though I like duo there’s one thing that I wish could be changed, in the doodles there’s barely any colors and there’s only one brush. For the colors there is barely any colors there’s just purple, blue, green, yellow, and red there is no skin colors for those people with great art skills there should be more stuff for them so they can show their friends and family there great art styles. And there also should be a way to zoom in on the drawing so the people can put more details on there work. For the brushes there should be more types of them and ways to size it, it will be helpful for artist but also for other people too like for writing notes or for other stuff. It’s great that there’s doodles but it would be more helpful to have more stuff on it!
Challenger10101 - Truly amazing
I’m able to talk to my children from 1000 miles away! The joy the springs me in my life to be able to see their faces and hear their voices and they see their happiness and smiles brings me incredibleenjoyment and happiness.I’m very thankful for your technology!!!10 years ago we were not able to do this kind of thing so easily but now because your technology and all your hard work from all the people that built this app it’s made these things possible for me and my family And others like me great joy and I would like to thank all of you out there who work so hard and putting this together.
Popcirngrjsb - Cool
Google duo is so amazing even though my grandma and grandpa don’t even have Wi-Fi and far away you can call your families and your friends it’s cool because even though you have no Wi-Fi you can still call and still have fun by the way having Google duo makes you have fun and this is this this is my first time using it so it’s really cool and you can do a fax while you’re calling someone and I’ve called my grandma and grandpa millions of times and now it’s really cool because even though they don’t have Wi-Fi they can still call me and talk to me so you guys should probably get google duo and I would highly recommend it 100%
Fudgewick555 - Good but...
I’m giving Google Duo my honest opinion review. It’s a great app to use to video and voice call your friends, especially if you don’t all have the same type of phones. A group of friends and I use this app sometimes to video call and catch up. But there’s 7 of us, and sometimes one person would be talking and it would be too glitchy to understand them. So I don’t know if it was their connection, or the app. The final thing I’d like to comment on is the filters. They’re all pretty vibrant, and fun but in a way weird. Some of them just seem like they weren’t made very well, and move differently then your face does. Other than these two things, it’s a great app. 👍🏾
Cantare means To Sing - The quality felt like a movie
You know when they show video chats in movies and it's so clear, it's as if they're editing live? This video was super clear like that.
I like the Facebook messenger app video chat over FaceTime and Skype (anything is better than skype), but this Duo app is above all of that and way better than the hangouts iOS app.
I have an iPhone 6s with 10.3.3 software. It worked so incredible for my call with my sister. The app downloaded in only a few seconds, so it's super lean and doesn't take up much storage space. My phone is getting old, so the battery drains quickly with video; but that's a phone issue. Highly recommend this app.
MeKILLow - This app...
... has been a total game changer for me and my family. I have a lot of family that live in various states that I connect with on a regular basis. I love talking to my family but getting to see them is so much better. If I work late I can just call my husband and have a quick peek at my sleeping angel. The ONLY problem i have with it is, is that at times the connection can get a bit blurry depending on what kind of phone they have, phone service, WiFi connection, etc....
But overall love the app. Highly recommend to all who have loved ones who live far and way and would like to keep in touch and the best part is, you don’t need to buy on of the expensive iPhones just to what they call “FaceTime” lol.
GachaWolfGurl - Amazing! Get it!
This is the most best face time app out there! So I have an iPhone and some of my family or friends don’t have a iPhone. So when I saw the app I was like,Wow this is pretty cool! I decided to download it and try it I told my friends to get this app and family. So they did I have family that live to far away and I can’t see them! So I texted saying get this app! And it works so good! The only problem is that it don’t have good quality. So I can’t properly see the person I’m talking too. Also it glitches and I can’t hear the very well. But other then that this is a wonder full app I recommend Getting it!
Bigwnfan - Cumbersome integration with Google Home
Using Duo within Google Home suite of products gets messy with Google Assistant and Voice Match.
It used to be that someone could simply say “ok google, cal xxx-xxx-xxxx” or “ok google, call Mary” and you could make hands free, outgoing (not incoming) calls from the google speaker and your contact list.
Duo, which is great on it’s own, is crazy inconsistent when trying to do the same especially if trying to distinguish a video call. Again, this is specific to hands-free calling (my father-in-law is a quadriplegic so we were hoping it would work for him.) and is really a reflection of Google Assistant and Voice Match getting in the way rather than allowing Duo and Google Hub Max to do it’s thing.
Hope they can fix this.
Brookie.com12345678910 - Amazing
As a person with an Iphone that has a lot of friends and family with androids, this app is wonderful. The quality of the videos are really good, and so is the audio. It takes your feedback on problems with the calls, which i’m really grateful for. Google Duo saves a lot of time, too. You can send voice measages between Iphones and androids, and video messages are available too. Overall, it’s a great, fun, and reliable app. The only tiny thing I would change is the abilities during calls. If you turn off the phone, the call will end. Other than that, this app has been a really helpful part of my phone.
Ehgoo - From: Kayla
I love google due but there’s just a problem, okay here me out I love it in all but just like I think you should add like a real texting thing like message instead of just us having to take pictures and saying what we have to do! And it’s also very hard if we actually have a special friend and we need to tell them very important stuff but we need to tell them right away but we just have to literally take a picture and then start saying it like it’s just kind of not working out in that situation, so that’s just the problem and ofc I love google due that was just my suggestion for you guys to change up some stuff! Ty have a nice day!!
Sarah 157 - It doesn’t happen that often but I does happen and when it does..😩
Every once and a while it does this thing that it says erase it call history or it says access you camera than it takes you to settings and there is literally no option there to do so. So than you have to delete your app than turn your device off and back on. After that than you go to the App Store and you click the cloud and than it disappears for less than a second than comes back it does this repeatedly. I suggest turning off your device for a longer period of time than turn back on and clear up some storage.
LBindahouuuusse - Amazing, couldn’t get better!
Google duo is AMAZING. I have so many friends who cannot FaceTime because they don’t have iPhones and I can’t contact them on social media because that’s just not my thing. But anyways google duo has great quality, my calls always end up coming in great. And unlike other apps I’ve tried I actually get notifications on google duo. Google duo is just amazing for me and couldn’t get any better. One thing to make it even better is adding some fun effects to do while your on video chat. But other than that little suggestion nothing about google duo should be changed, this app is my phone call heaven 😇
Mississippi girl Jenny - Most preferred video chat
I am a huge Apple person. That being said you would think I prefer FaceTime over another app. After using Google duo I can’t go back. The video quality is amazing. Such a clear picture. So simple to use. The only thing that’s disappointing is my notifications are delayed. I’ve tried all the suggestions, but they still come in delayed. I still give this app five stars. My best friend and I chat all day on google duo. I love that you can download the Mac app too. If you like the idea of video chatting, but want a really good quality picture this is the app for you.
NovaStar⭐️🌙🌎 - This is awesome!!
Google Duo is a great way to access people who can’t FaceTime and my grandma can’t FaceTime my phone for some reason so Google Duo really came in handy! I’m so glad people decided to make Google Duo because without it, there is no way to FaceTime people without FaceTime. Thank you for creating this! It did take a while to download, but that’s not going to be affective to my rating. I love Google Duo and adore it!!! Please people, make Google Duo the best app you have ever had! Though I do find it hard to use because the app drinks and drains battery very, very quickly and I saw that it dropped at least 30% after I used it once. Please do something about this.
Owlee Hoots - Constant spam calls
I installed the Google Duo Video app to talk to my parents who don’t have FaceTime. They mentioned they had both installed it because they wanted to video chat with me and my daughter.
During the 3 months this app was on my phone I received about 20+ spam calls PER DAY. Sometimes less than 1 minute apart. I would block the numbers, but a new number would just show up a minute later. The same thing was happening to both of my parents. Once I uninstalled the Google Duo Video App, the spam calls completely stopped. My parents also uninstalled it and their spam calls stopped as well. This is the worst app I have ever put on my phone for that reason. This is completely unacceptable. I do not have this issue with FaceTime. I 100% do not recommend the app to anyone who says they are considering. There’s a huge privacy issue with this app.
Supersonic 3k - Great app to use
I downloaded this app to utilize video chat with family who don't utilize Facebook or FaceTime. It was very simple to download using an IPhone XR, my contacts synced for easy access, and the effects and filters worked great to add a bit of fun to you videos. I like the way you can send video or voice messages, I don't like the fact that you can not block the screen when calling someone. It's almost like having "video-caller ID" the person your contacting can see you as you call is coming through, they can either answer or decline it. Other than that it is a great app to use for video calling.
Phil bob cheesesteak - Easier to hide an affair!
Love the idea behind the app but can we please be honest about the use of your hangouts & duo to promote secrecy in some relationships. Just wish it was advertised that way so that an unsuspecting spouse could at least have a bit of a clue when their spouse suddenly has chats on lock down which also doesn’t show up on mobile logs thru cell service. The app is great & def not to blame for snakes we have in our lives sometimes, but maybe mention it’s also used to hide conversations had with the third party in secret. Maybe just make a specific app for those types, call it , secrets safe! Play on safe! Lol love google! Thanks
BriBri 123_34 - I love google duo
Google duo is the best if you don’t have an iPhone it’s like the best thing to do and the best thing that has come through me and my friend since this Covid we have not very much been talking and I just want to tell your guys that it is the best and I really hope that you download this it is really fun and it’s a way to FaceTime your friends if you don’t have an iPhone SE I have an iPhone and my friend has a Samsung so we just kind of chat all the time on it and I hope you like this if you download it and if you don’t download it I would recommend you downloading downloading it so yeah
Sinfultorch - Could use some updates
I love this app and me and my friends really enjoy using this app to talk to each other. But the notes part of the messages option is one of my main sources of communication on this app and it’s starting to not send my messages and says I get notifications but shows no messages. My friends have problems as well and they send me messages at like 8 in the morning and I get them at 10 at night. I have the latest update for this app so I’m not sure if it’s just my device or this app. I love this app but if other people are having trouble I don’t want them leaving a bad review for an amazing app.

Steveman1243 - Room for improvement but still 5 stars
I love this app because I can talk to all my friends. But I do wish it had a screen sharing function. Having a screen sharing function would make it a lot better because for Example, when I am playing a game sometimes I want to show my friends what I’m doing, or add audio coming from my iPad so I don’t have to play music on a different device to show them. Or like on my phone, when I leave the app it goes into the bottom corner and I can still see, but it doesn’t do that on my tablet, if that was there I think many people would appreciate it.
JamesTrev - Good experiences on difficult internet links
Google Duo seems to outperform WhatsApp, Skype and FaceTime, especially over relatively “difficult” internet links such as to Pakistan and Indonesia from Australia. On some occasions I have had uninterrupted video calls on Duo when WhatsApp kept dropping out on a simple audio call. Well done! Just that it would be nice to have text messaging integrated with the App.
Luv iPad - Needs to be better
We used Duo for the first time today for a family get together video chat.
Other apps we tried failed to connect some participants, or the invite process was clunky. Duo was very simple and error free by comparison.
The video quality was much better than other apps we tried, which is a huge plus for us.
However we were disappointed that the participant windows 5-8 are smaller, it would be helpful if they were more consistent size.
Flipping windows around the screen to highlight whoever is talking is disconcerting.
It would be more useful if the ‘window’ showing ‘my’ camera view is always a small window in a corner.
this app has huge potential but these things need to be fixed as other apps provide a better viewer experience. We will use Duo again, but I expect we might be looking for a better app.
😂😂😂char - Appreciate
Me and my friend cannot video call on normal calling on our phones the I tried this and I could actually see her. Now whenever I want I can FaceTime her and see her and we can smile and laugh and cry and be mad with each other it is amazing and I just wanted to that’ll the person and people who help create this app and I appreciate them and you soooooooo much thank you by by!!!
Aussie Sunday's - Google Champions Face to Face
Best App Ever and cuts costs on top quality communication. Duo would have too be one of the most affective ways of speaking with people. If your not on duo then you are missing out completely. Face to Face is now and standard calling doesn't really cut it in these more modern times. Best App Ever. I can't praise this app enough💎
Jamileemarie - I wouldn’t even waste you’re time
This app constantly Glitches, freezes , audio is crappy and is always lagging ,video is crappy needs a total update and app needs re looking into I wouldn’t recommend this but as I have family that lives far away and a niece that calls me on this app and some don’t have FaceTime so I have to use this but every time i use it ,it is a horrible app and start to call their phone Normally as you can actually have a conversation
Haly2003 - No you cannot have access to my contacts
This app only works if you give access to your contacts and I’m sorry if I don’t want to see business contacts and trades persons in my duo contacts allowing them to feel it is okay to contact me using this app. There is no way to filter or sort so random people you hardly know can appear at the top just because that is the way the app sorts them and it only includes their name and not business association so they can be unfamiliar without that reference. It just feels wrong. Deleted.
Vish_B - App not tested properly
on my iphone x, a 10 min video call makes my phone back quite hot and consumption of battery is too heavy, 10 min video call consumes more than 20% of my phone battery life. something is not right, used to be good. until this is fixed i will minimise my usage.
Jeffdog54 - This app is AMAZINGGG
Hello creators of Google Duo!!
I just want to say how amazing this app is!! I can FaceTime all of my friends, either at or not at my house!! Thanks so much for creating this app it really helps a lot with my friends who don’t have an apple! Now I can FaceTime anyone I want, whenever I want! Thanks again!
Jesusonapancake - Fantastic quality video
Fantastic quality video, needs to be able to chat. Should be able to know if recipient has viewed video or picture. A little confusing where to go otherwise great
Belinda 88 - It stuck in dial tone and won’t connect
When I use google duo to call my mum it used to work now it stuck in dial tone and won’t connect how do I get it unstuck from dial tone I tried unstinting it disconnect my email from it but still nothing please help
Dance_56 - Awesome
This app is awesome the only thing I wish it would let us change the profile picture for when it is a group chat and more emojis to react to messages and also possibly filters/effects for when we are video calling but other than that it’s awesome.
Nasser_playz98 - Perfect for video calling
It was an amazing experience with this amazing app,I enjoyed and got really amazed on how they do these things but it does get a little annoying sometimes when unexpected errors happen but still a great app for video calling
Sunny Coast Girl - Please add static screens for group calls
As the name suggests, better for two to four max. Anymore than that and the screens jump around; super annoying and distracting. Would be good to be able to pin screens and also use the group function on the computer.
Other than that; sound and screen quality are excellent.
DOORS2122 - Quality calls
There’s never a disconnection when I call and no lag so it’s quality unlike FaceTime which disconnects and lags all the time. Only downside is not many people have it.
레피스테너 - Video quality is same as Facetime.
Andriod user and iPhone user cannot high quality video call each other.
However, the google made it that it is possible. Thank’s google.
Subhadra Nair - Hidden gem
I always had Duo and Duo Mobile on my mobile for personal and official purposes. Never realized it’s this simple and powerful to use. A truly inspiring example of being simple and powerful. Thank you Google
Ree ree92 - AMAZING!!!!
Google Duo is AMAZING.!
great for areas with low internet speeds or quality, well and truly better than what’s app,Facebook,Viber for video chat.
Would highly recommend to anyone and I take my hat off to google nor nailing this one.!
Unifun - Really good app
This app has really good quality calls and you can edit your pictures you can have filters when you are calling someone
TAMIZHANDA - Can improve
Overall experience is really good, quality is amazing than any other app I used. But, after a long duration connection starts to dropout.
#clear slime - Awesome
This is a fantastic app because it has great quality great sounds other people can call you and you can call them. I rate this app a 5 star ⭐️ rating.
Wynnum16 - Feedback
Reception is good most times,maybe it’s because of we’re I am, other than that it’s a good app to use, as I use it to keep in touch with my friend in Mt Isa,and were he is at times is in neva neva land reception sometimes bad sometimes good so the reason for my rate.
PixelatedYT - Needs messaging
Duo is a good video chat app but it’s missing a key feature that hangouts have text messaging how hard would it be to take that feature from hangouts and put it into duo
AwesomeAlex1949 - Due
This app is amazing when u have family u want to face time but they have Samsung is this is the app I like is very reliable and I think you should get this app.
EvaHaz - Great App that never fails
I adopted Google Duo as my communication app for all my voice and video calls with my family.
It is very light and easy to operate. I do not recall loosing the connection.
Savannah and Maeve - Good app
This is a good app because if you have a freeing or family member that has a different brand you can go on this app and be able to call and FaceTime
Dissident 19 - Video call
I had a chat with another GP and we talked for about half an hour and there wasn’t any problems
Mohit4frsh - Thank You For Your Serice
Thank you google for this amazing video quality services. I never seen this kind if video calling quality in my life.
Matth BME - Just perfect
Quite interesting! Perfect quality for both audio and video! I wish i could also send text by Duo.
RobPre - Why I love Duo
The app is easy to use, I can talk to family and friends. I’m in Australia and call USA without any problems. Daily for hours
You should try it it’s great
SpeedFlash789 - Please add
Google duo can you make it so we can change our ringtone when someone calls us
LMJunusco - Better than Any other Camera Video Chat app
Better than Any other Camera Video Chat app. More stable and clear sound
DaBurns1979 - Clear video
Needs an iPad version as well to make full use of the clear video on a larger screen
Zolfiqar313 - Best app so far
I have been using so many apps ( WhatsApp, Viber ...) to keep in touch with my family and friends overseas. By far this app is the best.
Sam joaq - Google call App
Great App, does what it’s supposed to do well.
However, as far as I know it overheats on IOS and drains the battery like no App I’ve ever seen before. I only use it while charging, come to thing of I don’t know if that’s a good idea🤔 there are records of phones explosions in similar cases.
)k)t) - Reliability
I’m able to talk with and see my kids when I’m at work or away from them.
Trevorwemyss - Excellent sound quality 👍
I don’t use duo often but I think I will as the quality is excellent
Good work google 👍
James ^__^ - Apple Watch
Apple Watch support would be nice.
If we can’t answer audio call on the Apple Watch and simple notification of incoming call would be great!
Deardesign - Clear if your connection is good
Wished there was a desktop version for the mac.
FromAdelaideAuss - Great! Audio & Video call works well in Middle East
One to one or conference call worked well. Even in the Middle East. Recommend the app. 👍
Aladdin🤩🥰😍🥳👏 - Mediocre
It’s good but i wish I didn’t have to have a google account I have an iCloud email and it doesn’t work and I wish it had more Snapchat like filters other than that it’s a good app <3
Bella Callinan - Google Duo Is Amazing
I recommend getting duo if you and your friend have no way of FaceTiming. It’s really handy, thank you for creating this 💕
Taylah- Rose09 - Why I like this app
I like this app because you can do group chats with your friends
YouthInRevoltt - Good
Good but needs options for group Calling. Simple and easy. Also think the mini window should be same aspect ratio as the other persons box.
Bmack164 - Goggle duo
Good and all but some phones and iPads don’t have that note book effect on a call like some do please make all phones and iPads to have that
Azza mohr - What an upgrade
Would be an amazing app if the developers allowed apple user’s the same ability that Samsung user’s have and allow us to is the phone in the background while still watching and interacting in a call or even screen sharing. Like Jesus pick your game up google
Mobikwik user - Multiple devices
There should be an option to use multiple phone numbers
Naish piv - Conference call
Conference call from Australia to Scotland never dropped out once, much better than Skype ..
Kang890 - Awesome app with few glitches
Need proper call history and a favourite list Every time I am searching for contacts to dial again. Thanks
Gadgetgirl111111 - Overheated phone really quick
Overheated my phone, couldn’t answer my call on partners pixel 4a until 3rd attempt, then couldn’t stop call on the pixel!! Scarey! Deleted app off both phones there are better options out there

Bluediver79 - Speaker phone does not work
I live in Eastern Canada & called my cousin who is in the US Navy based in Florida. To my surprise, the speaker did not work & we tried using the app back & forth 4 Times but had the same non functional speaker issue. A minor bug I am sure but an important issue just the same!
Perrypetri - Nice app
Sound quality is great but I can’t put a voice call on speaker for Some reason.
Somzara - Crystal clear
Calls are always crystal clear.
Ke3oo - Easy lite and fast
I love this app. Made it easy to communicate with parents overseas

As of today, it’s best of all web based voice / video call tool.
Ttdelta2 - Perfect Duo:)
Easy to use, crystal clear sound, an joy to use!
Frag-a-holic - Garbage
Constant connection issues between other phones, at least it was free 🤷♂️
Aruveer666 - The app opens every time someone calls
I’m always I’m the middle of a game or something like that, then someone calls and then it opens the app, and then after the call ends it just stays on the google duo app, meaning I lose any progress I made in a game. Please fix this, I find this happens on my iPad, and just make the call like a normal call, when it ends it goes back to the previous app.
Elocha ❤️ - Les appeles
On ne peut pas appeler des adress imail on peut seulement appeler avec des num 😕🙁
Dou user - B.samoel
Perfect for long distance calls and video calls…thank you google team ❤️
Adri the big boy - Cool
This app is dog waters it’s for idiots
Sachink80 - Does not have speaker phone option when dialing
How stupid is that
Marchi1957 - Image
Quelques fois l’image fige
Mais en général j’adore cette application
Flowerpower971 - Great but...
It’s everything you would ever wish for specially when you have and Apple iPad and your parents have a Samsung phone but to sign up you need to put a phone number so I used my dads but now I can’t call him and my sis used the same phone # so now e can’t call each other but I can call my dad on HANGOUTS an other wifi chat thing by google but overall that’s all u could ask for.
Pathmavathy - Re the phone call
Very clear and had a very good conversation
Crow1 - Nice
Clearest video chat I’ve ever experienced, hard to focus sometimes when looking at text, but all in all a great experience.
Gibbs50 - Possibly the most annoying app I have downloaded
This app routinely prompts me to call random numbers out of my contacts list. Like I can’t decide who I want to have a video call with on my own. I had to delete it
Crazyreedhead - I have no clue what the hype about this is......
Really disappointed. I see all these ads saying that is the best video calling and to be 100 % honest its horrible! I can never stay on a video call without it either failing, the audio being horrible or the entire thing freezing in the middle of a conversation. Would rather make a phone call and describe what I’m doing or what I want to show to ther person then use duo.
Olivia does cupcake queen - It’s very very
So it’s OK maybe can you not make a glitch because it’s kind of like sad because I can’t call my friend Julia without it glitching thank you
Huguyguyguogvigyvyitcy - Stinky
It promised good quality video calling and all I got was disappointed. :(
Scotsman in Calgary - Creepy app. Camera started up sitting idle on desk.
App wasn’t even in the foreground. Email was and phone idle screen off on coffee table watching a movie. Phone lit up. Camera on, phone obviously looking right up so image of ceiling. Picked up and closed google duo. Weirded out. Uninstalled. Wants access to contacts. Wants too much access. But too creepy for my liking. Bring back google talk. You didn’t need to hand over to google everyone you know before being able to use it.
Nhokars - Có nhầm lẫn gì chăng
Ứng dụng không phân biệt được số điện thoại các nước. Tôi gọi cho một số ở Nhật +81 lại nhảy ra cho một người ở Việt Nam cùng dãy số đuôi nhưng đầu số +84
Nick_W - No tablet app (iPad)
No use for larger devices than a phone.
Annick St Jérôme - Excellente qualité d’image
Image de très bonne qualité , très stable , c’est parfait !
Jorge Paulo Arruda - Google Duo
How do I get dark mode on my iPhone XS Max and I like more dark mode on my iPhone and can you fix that problem too my friend please and let me know if you can do it
Erreddfftg - Trash
garbage app never works and wastes 30 minutes of your time DO NOT GET
Young Explorers Co-op - Good soup
Sonal0141 - Unable to register
Every time I am trying to login it’s giving me this error.
SilentDevilxx - Best app for video calling
Best app for video call
Jon mls - Normal fully Functional Video/ Call/ Msg
This app is great and straight forward. Email, password is required for use of the application. Ultimately, data is required like personal info name, age, etc.
Snacks 🐷 - Awesome 🤩🤩🤩🤩
It’s so cool
2011aerruda - This is the best app I’ve ever used is great for talking to your friends around the world
Liamsianna - Great 👍
Great way to talk to someone across the world, sound was very clear, picture was very clear and very happy with the app keep up the good work !
A person🙄💅🏾✨ - Y’a mama
I honestly fell like we should share our screen
家有学童 - Nice and convenient design
It is nice and convenient to use for a video call between 2 people, but there are some bugs that needs to be fixed, and also sometimes it might cuts your voice out suddenly for the other people if he is also speaking, or making some sounds. However, still recommend if you do not care too much about details. Just keep in mind that Google is not good at making mobile/tablet apps, IMO.
Yoimapilot28 - It’s okay
Great Picture Quality Terrible Audio
Fuyangel - Phenomenal
Great way to keep in contact with loved ones . Next best thing to face to face
Amer 1234 - Comments
Very good App. Thank you.
I noticed that there is an interruption in voice if both Callers speak at the same time. Otherwise everything and all tolls are perfect.
Dylan Pattyn - Better Than FaceTime
Apple may have better hardware but Google always makes better apps…. People should be more aware of this app
Abdulbakt - Very good thanks
Very good thanks
Lelo7828 - Works perfectly
It doesnt lag at all. The only thing I dont like is that you cant chat while videocalling
Uncleleo65 - Family time
It’s the best way to have for me to visit family and talk to my Grandson and he can see me .
Meow!!!? - Love
Do you always run for it do you let it run you what is love waiting for God to show me
FsjsjIndjdLsjjsiiik - It made me reenter my number twice
It works perfectly and is a very good app but it randomly made me reenter my phone number. It isn’t a big problem just inconvenient because it deleted all the information and saved screen shots from my calls.
