Through one of its official blogs, Google announced today an important change in its offer of applications for video calls. Google Duo and Google Meet apps will soon be integrated into one.
Both were designed by Google with the purpose of providing users with a place to communicate with their personal or professional contacts. Now, in an attempt to simplify its offer, all the features of these apps will be integrated into a single offer.
Google Meet will be the video calling application for Android users
By the end of this year, Google promises to integrate its entire video calling offer into Google Meet. This will become the only video calling application offered by Google and the ideal choice for Android users.
If you have the Google Duo app installed on your smartphone, you won’t need to install Meet. Google clarifies that for this transition to take place, it will only be necessary to keep Google Duo updated.
As of the next few weeks, the American company will begin to integrate Google Meet features into Google Duo. In this way, the simplicity of the latter will be complemented with the more advanced options offered by the former.
This means that Google Duo will soon receive features such as virtual backgrounds, real-time file sharing or text chats. One of the most significant improvements will be the expansion to up to 100 participants in each video call from the current limit of 32.
This merger of Google’s offerings will be carried out with the belief that it will be the best option for all users. This is the reason given by the American for the decision to combine both applications in a single offer.
It’s also the latest chapter in the ongoing investment that Google has made to adapt to users’ needs and keep them connected. It will do so by offering a service that includes all the answers to your requirements.
The news of the unification of Google Duo and Meet does not come as a big surprise, since both have a very similar purpose. So, with the offer of a single app, it will be easier to find what you want in your video calls.
