With Google Duo, you and your friends can have video calls as long as they have the app on iOS or Android. The app switches between Wi-Fi and cellular data automatically and offers end-to-end call encryption.

What is it about?

If you use FaceTime, then you know that the nifty video calling app only works on Apple devices. So, what do you use when your best friend has an Android phone? Well, now you can use Google Duo, the video calling app that brings you together, across platforms.

Google Duo

For those who...

  • Like to make and receive video calls
  • Have friends or family using Android devices

Not for those who...

  • Dislike participating in video calls
  • Prefer to only use FaceTime and iOS apps

Why we love it

With a minimalistic design, placing a call is super easy. Just open the app, select your contact, and that’s it. If your pal does not have Google Duo yet, there is a handy “invite” link that will send them a text message to obtain the app.
