As announced in June, Google has updated the experience of Duo to include the functionality of Google Meet and make the two services one. This gives users access to new options such as scheduling and joining meetings, virtual backgrounds, in-meeting chats and more, as well as current video calling capabilities. So let’s go to understand more in detail what it is.
Google Duo becomes Meet: here are the new functions
Google Duo and Google Meet become a single service available to users, with really interesting additional features. These include the possibility of start an instant video call with the study group or work colleagues at a scheduled time that is repeated from time to time. And that’s not all. From now on it will be possible change the background o apply visual effects before attending a meeting. And use chat and captions during the video call.
Furthermore, as if that were not enough, the technological giant is also launching the live sharing for Google Meet, which allows all meeting participants to interact with shared content. A really interesting novelty, which Google is starting to integrate into the App Duo, of which some users should already begin to see a change of icon and name. The update, in fact, will arrive on mobile devices and tablets throughout the month, and then reach the other devices at a later time. In any case, if you don’t want to lose it, we suggest you keep the App updated to the latest version.
