Google Duo Gets Tablet Interface for Android Tablets and iPads

Google may be on their way to phase out its ill-fated chat app, Allo, but the company is still energetic about its Duo video-calling app that was initially released precisely a couple of years ago.

After the rollout of Google Assistant integration to the app earlier this year, the company has now announced the roll-out of a new update that promises to bring video-calling support for Android tablets and iPads.

The tech giant had earlier introduced a dedicated UI for tablets as part of a server-side update that also brought along support for multi-device, but the feature was only available on a selected number of devices for a handful of users. With its latest update, the new feature is likely to be available for a broader user-base on a more significant number of devices.

It is worth knowing that Google originally envisioned Duo an essential video-calling app for developing countries with unreliable internet connections/service, but has since rolled out quite a number of new features to the software, making it a massive competitor in the segment. As mentioned earlier, the device has already received multi-device support as part of a recent update, and Google also introduced the screen-sharing feature earlier this year, which enables users to share their screens during a call.

With tablet and multi-device support finally starting to roll out after much pleas from users, Duo is confident to be a more feature-filled software than the bare-bones video calling app that was launched some couple of years ago alongside the soon to be discontinued Allow.

However, it does remain to be seen whether it will be able to gain any significant market share from the established players such as Facebook Messenger, Skype, and WhatsApp etc.
