App Reviews

  • Phenomenal call quality

    By M. Piela
    Downloaded this app because I have ZERO cell service in my house and apple didn’t enable WiFi calling. So instead of stepping outside in the rain or freezing weather whenever someone wanted to call me at home, Duo has solved that. Call audio is the clearest I have ever heard on a phone call, like the person is on the other side of your phone talking at your ear. I have strong WiFi so I can’t say how it would perform if WiFi is spotty. I noticed that when you are not on WiFi and take a duo call over your cell service there is a bit of a delay between accepting the call and when the caller can hear you which can lead to some confusion, but still great call quality. Very simple interface, no bells and whistles, just works, and works great.
  • 5-Star Call Quality

    By murderino number one thousand
    Today, Google Duo asked me to rate the quality of my call, and I feel more than willing to oblige, seeing as it was one of the most comforting and up-lifting calls I’ve ever made. Even in moments of laziness, when I forget to look at the big picture, and know that art is simply worth making, Google Duo is always there for me, and truly makes me feel like I have things that are worth saying in a way no friend ever has done for me before, which is really saying something, because as Google Duo knows, I have some stellar friends & roommates that I didn’t think could be outdone, until now. Clear audio, clear picture, overall an unmatched and incredible friend—it is very much appreciated.
  • Integral part of my long-distance relationship

    By Ohlivia_W
    The internet and cell service at my apartment is spotty at best, and my long-distance boyfriend and I had been continuously frustrated by this as it was difficult for us to skype, FaceTime, or Facebook messenger video call, and actually hold a conversation and be able to see each other, and even regular voice calls would drop or be noisy. Duo somehow has absolutely none of the problems of the other services, and my boyfriend and I are so happy that we can finally hold a conversation like we’re right next to each other instead of nearly 1000 miles apart. Since downloading the app, we haven’t bothered using anything else.
  • The quality felt like a movie

    By Cantare means To Sing
    You know when they show video chats in movies and it's so clear, it's as if they're editing live? This video was super clear like that. I like the Facebook messenger app video chat over FaceTime and Skype (anything is better than skype), but this Duo app is above all of that and way better than the hangouts iOS app. I have an iPhone 6s with 10.3.3 software. It worked so incredible for my call with my sister. The app downloaded in only a few seconds, so it's super lean and doesn't take up much storage space. My phone is getting old, so the battery drains quickly with video; but that's a phone issue. Highly recommend this app.
  • A good review

    By lyndsie perez
    Thank you for coming up with this idea because it is so much better to talk to my friends that don’t have iPhones because I have an iPhone and it doesn’t FaceTime Samsung’s or galaxies and duo keeps good colored files for me to talk to my friends but the only thing I don’t like about duo is when my friends are far apart it buffers but that’s really nothing to care about but thank you so so so so so so so so so much for making this app I love your love when my friends are far apart it bothers but that’s really nothing to care about but thank you so so so so so so so so so much for making this up I love y’all love Lyndsie perez
  • Doesn't show up in "iPad" purchased list.

    By 4th Doctor fan
    Running on iPad.. Only shows up under Purchased list after switching Purchased List to "iPhone" apps (does NOT show up under default "iPad" purchased apps), even though recent versions of the app shows up under both iPhone and iPad when searching for it in main AppStore list. Initially installed as the iPhone version (back then only appeared under iPhone filtered AppStore list) before they added support for iPad. Have since upgraded to latest versions, and even tried Deleting/Reinstalling, and still does not show in my default Purchased list unless I toggle to iPhone apps list. Why ??
  • Duo app

    By Joshs wife's review
    It’s a really good app , I really love it I been using it now for almost 2 years and used it on my smartphones and on my iPhone and I love it , the only thing I don’t like sometimes is that the video quality or voice quality acts up on places you get weak signal on but is still a good app , my sisters and mom and my wife use this app and they love it and you can leave a video message if the person don’t answer the video call , you can connect it to your contacts and other things I can’t rem what but it’s a great app for I assume any device except my laptop I couldn’t download it 😔
  • Recent update or ios11?

    By JamieeeLee
    I have been using google duo with no problems for a while, but with the recent ios11 update I've been having an issue where I cant change the volume. When I click the volume buttons to adjust it, it displays the volume going down but the volume does not change. Its pretty annoying because if I'm talking to someone late at night the call is super loud and I don't want to wake anyone up, so I sometimes use just the audio feature. But the audio feature speaker doesnt even work and the volume is super low 🙄
  • I’m so happy with this app!!!

    By Morgan Skeff
    My bff got a Samsung and of course I have a Apple there was no way to face time each other. We found apps that we could use but most of them didn’t work well or glitches every 5seconds until we found google duo. It is a very well designed app with face time and audio call. This app is not glitchy even when not connected to WiFi, this app is very helpful for Samsung, Apple and every other phone users to use the chat with each other. Overall a great app very please will continue using this app!!!!👏🏻
  • Best video chat app ever!

    By Maddash45
    I’ve had so many issues with FaceTime, messenger, WhatsApp and wechat when it comes to sustaining a video connection when my WiFi connectivity degrades, but I had zero problems with duo. I did have video drop out twice in a 2hr chat session but it does something none of the other apps switched to audio only so I could still chat and the video came back within seconds. Also, the video was clear throughout whereas messenger used to always be beyond blurry. Love it!!
