Google continues to merge its Meet and Duo messaging apps

Announced a few weeks ago, the merger between Google Meet and Google Duo on Android and iOS has just taken a new step. As a reminder, Google will combine its two instant messaging applications, in order to harmonize its offer and simplify video calls with a single application.

The two apps are after all very similar, with a few differences. Google Meet wants to reach a more professional audience by offering a video meeting service aimed at both web browsers and smartphones. On the other hand, you have to pay to have access to all the advanced and important trading features. Google Duo -which is completely free- is similar to FaceTime, WhatsApp Messenger, Messenger, Skype, ZOOM Cloud Meetingsetc

With the latest app update, Google starts with its graphical stage, where the Meet icon and name will replace those of Duo. The Google Duo icon (from 2016) with a white video camera inside a kind of blue drop is replaced by a square, four-color camera, while the name changes from Duo at Meet.

Video call features are still available for free in the updated Duo app on mobile devices. Chat history, contacts, and messages remain. You just have to connect with a google account.
