How To Use Google Duo Video Calling App On Your Phone

   
    Google Duo is an application from Google Inc. that allow users make video calls with the contacts on their phone using the app. The app is interesting as it makes use of your phone number instead of the traditional Google+ or Gmail account for authentication. So it makes it lots simple to establish communication with your contacts who uses the app also or you can easily invite anyone to use the app and communicate with you.

Another interesting feature of the Duo is its ability to consume less data during video calls which beats what other video calling apps like Skype, Facebook messenger, Imo and the rest offers.

The Duo application is Currently available on both android and iOS platform so users can easily head over to playstore and iTunes respectively to download it.

OTHER GOOGLE DUO APP SETTINGS
To go into the settings tab, just tap the three-dot menu in the top-left corner of the app's main screen and select Settings.

In case you don't want to use the "Knock Knock", (a feature that allows your callers to see your video first before picking your call), you can turn it off by "sliding the toggle for Knock Knock off".

Also you can setup how your data is consumed because at default, the app minimizes data usage by delivering low quality videos on calls with cellular data but full video quality when connected to WiFi. So you can toggle the switch ON or OFF according to your preference.
