We get information about possible new features that could arrive soon to Google Duo so you can make group video calls and more
It replaced Hangouts as a default Android app on many devices be they phones or tablets, so it makes sense that it's spread fast.
Shortly after rumors piled on about recent internal shakeups with Google's messaging clients, Google came to confirm the news: Allo is dead.
Video calls can be made through the app on Duo while Google Wallet can be used inside Android Messages to move money around.
Google's Phone, Contacts and Android Messages apps will link video calls to the Duo app on Pixel, Nexus and Android One phones.
At least you can't say Google doesn't take care of Allo and Duo, but its users and observers are moping about being stuck in the mud.
Secure, encrypted video calls only? No more. Duo gives users around the world the option to drop the moving pictures from the situation.
The phone starts at $229.99. If you decided to dawdle around on Motorola's site for a bit, you'll get a little discount worth your while.
SMS in Hangouts gets out of Hangouts soon according to a letter to G Suite admins. But you may still cling on if you have Google Voice or Project Fi.
As Google starts distributing a bevy of improvements to its services in Brazil, Duo and Allo users worldwide are looking forward to some good news.
And by roadmap, there IS no public roadmap. Just reassurances that features will be coming along and that visions are in place for Hangouts.
What once merged SMS and digital chat streams has faded into something different. Duo may take over for what consumers want in communication.
Only available in English as a "preview" right now, Google Assistant will before long pick up Hindi support in Allo.
Allo and Duo are Google's new messaging platforms. Adoption might be a challenge, so the question is, will you help Google spread the word?
More than a month after commercially launching Duo, Google has finally made Allo, its other highly anticipated chat app, available on Android and iOS.
Will Duo successfully be the Hangouts that consumers have wanted or is FaceTime still going to be the way to go for most people?
The core Google Hangouts app and the live streaming Hangouts on Air spin-off are up for big changes, as Duo and YouTube Live move into the spotlight.
Three long months after its I/O introduction, Google Duo finally rolls out to Android and iOS users in search for a simple and smooth video calling app.
When the Internet was coming into its own back in the ’90’s, we were migrating from “classic” uses (Archie, Finger, Ping, Usenet, FTP, Email, web browsing, etc.), to a more “modern” set. Chances are that you’ve heard of a couple of those, whereas the others have all but faded out of commonality. Today web technologies power most of what we do, and it looks like email is next on the chopping block. If that’s the case, will chat apps replace email as our preferred form of communication? And if so, why does Google think I need five apps to [...]
Yesterday, we asked Google a series of questions that weren’t answered to our satisfaction at Google I/O’s keynote. But we’re not completely negative Nellies here at Pocketnow. But while that list of questions is pretty long, the list of great things coming out of Google I/O thus far is pretty great in and of itself. So, to balance the negative with the positive, here are nice things from Google I/O that have impressed us here at Pocketnow.Split screen
It has been asked for for years. Samsung has been doing it, first on the Note, then on the S-series of phones. So [...]
Let's take a closer look at the Google I/O 2016 keynote and see what we really learned. Check out a recap of what happened!
Google’s keynote is over and we are left with a whole heap of newness to revel in. We have new features in Android N, Android VR/Daydream, Instant Apps, new messaging apps, Android Wear 2.0, boy oh boy! Good times are ahead folks. But as the announcements rolled out, I was left with a few nagging questions about some of what we saw.Why can’t you name your own damn product?
After months of speculation and thought. After website polls and scouring of recipe books from sea to shining sea, Google finally reveals…nothing…about what that darn “N” stands for. Instead, it’s [...]
Google's new messaging services will join two existing ones. Allo, Duo, Hangouts and Messenger all have plenty of medium duplications.
