Ratings and Reviews
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.
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 👉🏻👈🏻🥺
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!
