Has become. Messenger from Google has a new name

It is already here. The long-announced change has finally come into effect. We have just said goodbye to the popular Google Duo messenger. The giant paired it with one of its most popular services.

The American company has so far offered two communicators – Google Duo for individual users and Google Meet for companies and institutions. The latter service became especially popular during the pandemic. Schools and universities have used it for distance learning.

This is the end of Google Duo. Say hello to Meet

Google Duo, on the other hand, was less popular, but the application was still used by millions of users from around the world. Both instant messaging services had similar features, including the ability to chat and video calling, though Meet offered many more possibilities in this regard. It happened because of the pandemic – after the outbreak, the company quickly introduced a number of new options to make it easier for users to switch to remote study and work.

Now only Google Meet is left, but this is not bad news for people who have used Google Duo so far. The combination of both services will give them the opportunity to use a number of new functions, including the ability to schedule meetings in the calendar, changing the background, live screen sharing and automatically generated captions. The number of people who can participate in the interview will also increase – from 32 to 100.

Google Duo users have already received a messagein which the company explains what changes have been made and asks you to install a new application:

Google tells users that Duo is connected to Google Meet.

Hopefully, the change won’t surprise most users right before they’ve scheduled an important conversation.
