Ratings and Reviews
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!
Duo for online music classes
My use of DUO is v frequent for calls with friends and family, it works quite well.
I regularly use duo to learn music online from my teacher. Classical music requires a tanapura or harmonium playing in the background. However, when my teacher sings and plays the instrument at the same time, DUO goes awry- the person at the other end can either hear the instrument sound or the vocal, never both together. Can this be rectified with any settings, or is this an engineering gap?
Also DUO usually works well for 30 mins then the call quality drops, not sure if that is attributed to the network though
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.
