Clear Hearted

I keep on moving from one place to another on account of professional engagement. While being away from family, only way out to burst your stress is to clear your heart while seeing them face to face. Old application I used was not receptive, visual were blurred, voice was unclear however Duo has truly helped me to bring my family closer to me.

You have become that part of our family which can never be apart.

Fix camera issue for 5 stars!

Unless you're the type who's circle is full of apple users and you use Facetime by default....this is the go to video calling app for personal use.

It's better than WhatsApp and easier to use than the likes of Skype and zoom, the app is simple and comes with a nice clean UI. The video quality is clean and works surprisingly well on relatively patchy connections which is probably the most important thing in India.

The one problem I keep facing is the random camera jitter / blur when I switch to the back camera rendering it effectively useless during video calls. I've checked and confirmed that this is NOT a hardware issue. Fix this and you're golden. Cheers!

I don’t need to know when someone contact is now on Duo, please!

Great app, and I want to keep it installed on my phone and make calls to people through Duo, integrates well with by google Home. Yes, here comes the big “but”. But, in a world where we are constantly notified of unimportant things on the phone, Google, I would love it if you please give me the option to stop notifying me when some contact of mine, “Amy is now on Duo! Say hello with a video call”. No, thank you! If I don't want that notification, I have to unfortunately disable notifications which would also stop me getting notifications of incoming calls, making the app worthless.

Can you please help with this, Google? Thank you.
