Meet Google Duo, a simple 1-to-1 video calling app for everyone

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Google has released Google Duo, "a simple 1-to-1 video calling app available for Android and iOS. Duo takes the complexity out of video calling, so that you can be together in the moment wherever you are." Interesting featire: "we created a feature in Duo called Knock Knock which lets you see live video of your caller before you answer, giving you a sense of what they’re up to and why they want to chat" It might take a bit before it's available wjhere you are; "it will be live worldwide in the next few days." It's notable to me that there is no support for Windows, and that it is not available for the desktop. So I'll keep using Skype.
