Duo - Video Calling

Duo┬áis another interesting new app. Duo allows users to make video calls with phone numbers on user’s address book and works with a weak connection too!google-duo-dc

Unlike all video calling apps, Duo enables users to see the user calling you before you even pickup. So you can start making funny faces on the camera or waving or whatever you like before the person you are calling has even picked up. It can make for a fun way to get your friend to pickup your video call by doing something silly as you’re waiting for them to pickup. See video below.

This seems like a fun new direction for video calling but nothing too exciting. But being able to video call with a weak connection will certainly be an added bonus especially when you’re making the call over long distance.
