How To Configure and Use Google Duo Video Calling App.
Most of us are very familiar with video calling as it has been around for quite sometime now, but even though the feature is available on many apps like blackberry messenger, Skype, imo, we chat and many others, it's not used as much often as you would have expected it to be and this is mostly due how frustrating and complicated the whole experience is most times.

One other cool thing about this app is that it doesn't require Gmail or any other email account when signing up. All what you need is your phone number as this app is tied to your number which makes it easier for you to chat with your contacts who already have the app installed on their device.
The Google duo app is available on play store for Android users and also on I tunes for iOS users. It gets you closer to your love ones with the simple and high quality video video on both Android and iOS. The first time you launch the Google Duo app, you will be asked to enter your number.
