With the announcement of latest Android operating system, Google also announced “Google Duo”. It is a video calling app. This app stands out of the rest because of the features that it provides. Google Duo has been under beta testing label for quite some time. It was released just yesterday. The interface is even more clean as compared to the beta version. The loading time is quick. It does not use lot of data. The calling on Google Duo is encrypted. Yes, the calls are end-to-end encrypted. This means that calls are way more secure than any other app available on market. Although is available for phones, you can connect with loved ones from PC as well. Download Google Duo for PC here. Then follow the installations steps below to install it. It is easier that you would think. Lets take a look at some cool features first.

Cross-Platform Google Duo

This is the highlight of this new app. Many iPhone users love Facetime because of its amazing video quality and strong connection. The app is secure due to end-to-end encryption. Sad part is that Facetime is available only for iOS. It cannot be accessed on other operating systems. Google has finally managed to release a decent app that will work on both iOS and Android operating system. Naturally one would think that Google Duo would be available to Android users only. But Thank God, we can use it on both devices. The installation is straightforward on both devices. By using this guide, users will be able to install Google Duo for PC as well. How cool is that!

Knock Knock

This is UI feature of Duo app by Google. This feature seems inspired by Sci-Fi movies where the video callers can actually see other person before attending the call. When Knock Knock feature is enabled, users will be able to see caller’s video before attending the call. This is possible only if other person has saved your number as a contact. Other person cannot see caller’s video if contact is not saved. Another possibility is if Knock Knock is disabled altogether. This will completely disable the video on call screen for Duo. This might be vital for those who do not want other people around to see who’s calling. TBH, this is a pretty cool and futuristic feature.
