Google Duo: a simple 1:1 mobile video calling app

Video calling is the next best thing to being with someone in person, but too often it can be a frustrating or complicated experience. You shouldn’t have to worry about whether your call will connect, or if your friend is using the same type of device as you are. It’s no wonder that nearly half of us never make video calls on mobile.

Google releases 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.

To get started, all you need is your phone number and you’ll be able to reach people in your phone’s contacts list. No separate account is required, so you can sign up in just a few steps. From there, you can instantly begin a video call with a single tap.

Fast and reliable:

Call quality adjusts to changing network conditions to keep you connected — when bandwidth is limited, Duo will gracefully reduce the resolution to keep the call going smoothly. For video calls on the go, Duo will switch between Wi-Fi and cellular data automatically without dropping your call.

And all Duo calls are end-to-end encrypted.

Note that this does not replace Hangouts video calls:

  • there is no desktop version.
  • there is no group calling.
  • there is no screen-sharing or other advanced features


Give your friends a wave with Duo! Google will roll out Duo for Android and iOS and it will be live worldwide in the next few days. Download here

Cleaning Up Your Google+ Communities

Google Plus Communities are gaining ground and is finding lot of interests among social media enthusiasts and users. It is the best to start building your network and relationship with people of similar interests. Once you join, it is always better to review them now and then to keep it organized.
Just like we organize our Circles, we need to do the same thing with Communities regularly if we're going to continue to gain value from the Communities and Google+.

It is better to review those communities that either aren't active, or are not providing you with the valuable discussion you were looking for.These excess communities add to the total number of communities listed on your community page, complicating your ability to find and participate in the communities you're interested in. And posts to these extra communities could show up in your Home stream  and may even affect what your want see in What's Hot or Explore section of the Google+.

Google Plus Search Update

Google brings in improvements to G+ Search. Most significant is how searching is now less disruptive, while it is easier to categorize results.

On a results page, users can now filter by Posts , Communities, Collections, and People & Pages thanks to a new tabbed interface. When in the Posts tab, users can also filter posts from everyone, from people you follow or just you.
Another improvement is, a new, tabbed interface making it easier for you to find the exact type of content that you’re looking for.  Popular Topics are now displayed in the search bar dropdown.


These features should now be widely rolling out to all Google+ web users.

Discover Stream - Google Plus Update

Google+ launches new ‘Discover’ feature to help new users find the absolutely best content the network has to offer.New and signed out users will land on Discover (previously ‘Featured Collections’) which puts content from a diverse set of sources front and center.

We hope that this creates a better experience for new users that more readily communicates the awesome stuff G+ has to offer while providing existing users with a fun way to find and follow creators they haven’t yet, ahem, discovered. If you glance over at your left-hand navigation bar, you’ll notice a shiny ‘Discover’ tab waiting to be explored. Inside, you’ll find trending posts from curated sources in a new, denser format. Also inside are Featured Collections, Recommended Communities, and the previously announced Topics - which got a bit of a makeover as well, so be sure to check them out!


To make way for Discover, the Collections tab and the Events tab have been removed…
