Google Duo vs Zoom and others

Google Duo has become a bright star in the search giant’s gloomy social media apps for consumers. Since the outbreak of coronavirus and lockdown, Google has added new features to make Duo the best video calling service. From portrait effect and low-light mode to increased number of users on group calls, Duo has added a number of new features in the past few months.

Some might say these additions have come too late but it’s good to have more options. Zoom has been the clear leader in this segment since the start of the lockdown, but others have slowly caught up. With easy access to Duo from Chrome, users might prefer it over Zoom, which has been reported for security issues before.
