Google Duo changed my relationship
The Corona virus was the impetus for installing this app on my iPhone. My sister and I started talking many mornings about a year or so ago. We couldn’t do face time because she did not have an iPhone. Over time she upgraded her equipment and discovered Google Duo. She told me about it.
I suggested we try it and installed it in my iPhone. She got a friend to install it on her phone and our lives changed that day! Suddenly we were looking at each other as if we were in the room together. I could see her smile or laughter. I could also see her concern or sadness and a tear. Suddenly our hit or miss calls became a daily routine and the hundreds of miles physically separating us disappeared. Now we find ourselves googling at various times of the day to share news, show off the progress on projects, or get advice on how to handle a project or redecorate. It is just like having my sister living next door and coming over for a quick minute. Google Duo makes everything feel relaxed and normal not a big production, no codes needed to gain access — you just pick up the phone and voila! she’s there.
Because of our Google Duo experience we have now opened up a communication with our brother in Cal. Google Duo has brought our family together!!
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.
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.
