After much waiting, Google announced the official release of Google Duo also for Android and iPad tablets . The app is being rolled out, so it will take a few days before it can reach all compatible devices. All those who already use this video call service, will certainly be happy to use it on devices of a more generous size, compared to smartphones.
Google Duo is beginning to receive two highly expected features from users: receiving calls on multiple devices and a layout dedicated to tablets . Both have been spotted in the last hours and it seems that their activation has happened on the server side and only for a small circle of users, so we will have to wait a long time before the functions reach all users.
The management of multiple devices – originally spotted in February – allows you to receive calls on all terminals connected to the same Google Account . This is a welcome novelty to owners of more than one smartphone or tablet, which can use them indiscriminately to keep in touch through Google Duo.
Along with support for multiple devices, there is also a new interface designed for tablets . The layout appears very neat and efficient, proposing the video in the middle of the screen and the buttons dedicated to managing the call on one side, so as not to overlap with the video call. Also in this case it is necessary to wait for the server-side update, so it is impossible to establish a precise timing that is the same for everyone.
If these changes intrigued you and you want to try Google Duo – or download it again if you have left it – we invite you to consult the link to the Play Store and iTunes proposed below:
