New Delhi: Google might merge Duo and Meet to have Google Meet as the only video-calling service for regular and enterprise customers in a bid to compete with the increasingly popular Zoom.
Google recently appointed G Suite head Javier Soltero as manager of Google’s consumer communication services Duo, Messages and Android’s Phone app, according to a 9To5Google report.
As Duo gets phased out, some of its salient features will make their way to the video-conferencing app Google Meet, which has been made free for all users.
According to an XDA Developers report, end-to-end encryption, 3D effects and contacting users for a video via phone number are some of these features.
The merger and resulting phase-out will take some time, so for the time being the Duo app can be used.
