Two way adult video chatting
Those using Apple devices will see a notification on top of the screen and will have to open the Duo app before seeing Knock Knock in action.Otherwise, the app works the same for both Android and i Phone.Google and Apple have battled each other for years for primacy over mobile users.
Crystal Dahlen, a Google spokeswoman, said the name Duo conveyed that the app was designed for one-to-one video calling on mobile devices, in contrast to Hangouts, which lets groups of people make video calls over mobile devices and computers. Jobs, Apple’s co-founder, said he had dreamed of mobile video calling since he grew up watching “The Jetsons” and “Star Trek.” Apple later expanded Face Time to work with i Pads and Macs, among other Apple products.All of those apps were compelling alternatives to Apple’s proprietary apps, like Apple Maps, Photos and Notes, because they work on a wider variety of devices, including Macs, Windows PCs, Android devices and i Phones. People can only use Face Time to call others who have Apple devices. adults never make video calls on mobile.”All of this feeds into Google’s strategy to attract i Phone users over to Android.But Duo lets you place video calls between Android and i Phone users, and sizably increases the universe of people with whom you can hold a video conversation.“You shouldn’t have to worry about whether your call will connect, or if your friend is using the same type of device as you are,” Google said in a statement, in a veiled jab at Apple. Google’s apps generally work better on Android devices than on i Phones, so the more that people get hooked on Google’s core apps, the less incentive there is to stay loyal to Apple.In the tests, the video calls looked clearer on Duo, though that is an unreliable measure because very few people are currently able to use Duo, so the network is unrealistically uncongested.
When more people use Duo, we can expect the picture quality to vary depending on network traffic and internet speeds.The Silicon Valley company announced in May at its annual developer conference that Duo would be coming.
