Google Merges Duo With Meet in Latest Update

Google has started rolling out the recently merged Meet and Duo app, after announcing in June that the two video chat software would become “one connected solution”.

What the search engine giant essentially did was add all of Meet’s capabilities to Duo, rebranding it as the new Google Meet app for both iOS and Android.

Duo’s existing feature set remains untouched, meaning you’ll still be able to make video calls to your contacts using their phone numbers or email addresses. All of your conversation history, contacts and messages also remain. And you don’t need to download a new app. You just have to update the one already installed on your device to enjoy Meet’s features.

These include the ability to customise virtual backgrounds during calls and meetings, the use of in-meeting chat, content sharing, real-time captions
