#1

Along with Google Home, a Wi-Fi enabled hands-free interactive speaker, and Google Assistant, a new virtual assistant to have conversations, Google at I/O 2016 conference also announced two new apps Allo and Duo. While Allo is a smart messaging app, Duo is a one-to-one video calling app based on your phone number.

It comes with a feature called ‘Knock Knock’ which shows a live video stream of that caller as soon as it starts ringing, before you pick up the call. Based on webRTC, the video calls that you make to your friends are also encrypted. Google offered a demo of the app at work while pointing out that the video instantly starts the moment you answer the call.

Google also pointed that Duo is reliant irrespective of the network and proactively monitors the quality of network speed multiple times every second. It can also seamlessly switch between cellular and Wi-FI network when needed.
