There are lots of video calling applications are available in the Play store which often tends to confuse people. The apps include IMO, Skype, Hangouts, FaceTime, Google Duo, Facebook Messenger, etc. Here in this post, we will see the comparison of Google Duo and Skype. You can easily see you’re loved once and chat with them through a video call. Distance is doesn’t a matter when you make a video call. You can make the video call to the person who is far away using video calling applications.
Google Duo is the most popular video calling application which is specially designed for video calling purpose and it was developed by the topmost company, Google. Skype is a free video calling app that has over 1 billion downloads on Playstore. You can make free text chat, voice messages, emoticons, send photos, Emoji’s, etc. Users get irritated while using Skype because of its login process. You need to do several steps to sign up as a Skype user. But Google Duo is Simple and user-friendly. You can just simply and very easily sign up with your already existing Google account or your phone number.
Is Google Duo better than Skype?
Video calling apps usually include a huge amount of data and it is the same for Skype video calling. But you don’t need a huge amount of data for Google Duo, it connects better even in 3G connection. Duo user also saves the data with the Knock Knock feature. You can see the person who calls you and quickly decide whether you attend the call or not. This feature is not available on Skype. Next, we look for audio call options. You can do both video and audio call on Skype.
But Google Duo is specially made for Video calling purpose only; you can’t make a voice call. In past days, group calling option is not available in Google Duo. Now, Google tested out the group video call feature and got succeed. You can able to make a group video call up to 7 users on Duo. One important thing we need to notice the video quality, Right? Google Duo is always in front of the video quality feature. You can make a better video call even in 3G connection on Duo. But it is not possible in Skype, you may feel the video drop. That’s why I suggest Google Duo for video calling.
