I have just received notification that Google Duo, the search company’s new one-to-one video calling app, is now available in Google Play Philippines.

Dubbed as a simple one-to-one video calling app for everyone, Google Duo is desinged to be simple, reliable and fun. At the time of writing, I am at currently installing the app. It has a file size of just 8.57MB. Once installed, you have to approve permission access for the app and go through a registration process. The app will ask you for your mobile number, where it will send a verification code.

The app interface looks simple with just a play button and list of contacts at the bottom. The settings page is also simple with just a few options to choose from.

Take note that the app uses data so charges may apply. If you’re close to Wi-Fi, then you’re in luck.

Here are its features as posted on its Google Play page:

Simple interface
Pick a loved one and jump right in, with a simple interface that brings video to the forefront.

Knock Knock
See the caller before you pick up with Duo’s live preview feature.

High quality video
Experience faster and more reliable video calls whether you’re on Wi-Fi or on-the-go.

Video call all your friends across Android and iOS with just one simple app.

That’s about it. If you guys are looking for another alternative to Skype or any other video calling app, check out Google Duo.
