I don't know what's been happening in the last serveral months, but I can't get a hold of anyone, and they can't get a hold of me. It just does that ring BEFORE it connects and NEVER connects. It used to be so reliable. I've tried restarting my phone, the app, making sure I had wifi, trying it with no wifi, etc. It just won't make any calls anymore. Same as other users.

Emma

worked fine for a while, then kept having connection issues where I would call someone and it would just say connecting the whole time and they would never get the call. happened the other way around too. reinstalled it and so far it's been working fine. besides that, I really like duo and all of its features

Angela

There for awhile it was great but here lately it's so choppy and we freeze. I thought maybe it was due to signal or wi-fi but another app that is similar works fine. Not sure if there was an update but I cant stand using it anymore, I cant get any ifbthe conversation nor can the other people on DUO. If something doesnt change, I'm deleting the app.

Trisha

I enjoyed seeing my family however it doesn't show them full screen & froze up some at different times I don't know if it was them moving around. It had to reconnect. Just seeing them made it all worthwhile & I look forward to using the duo app again & more often as well. Thank you so very much bc it's quite a difference than just talking on the phone& not being able to see what's going on. It's really nice to be able to connect with them in action seeing as best as I can. I'm truly grateful. Ty

I can't change the call notifications. The all call notification toggle is grayed out so I can not change the setting. When I receive a call it automatically goes to missed call without a notification. I've forced closed the app. Uninstalled/installed the app, cleared the cache, I allowed the app to run in the background, do not disturb is not on. And still not able to change the all call notification setting.

Ekene

I have a Google Nest Hub Max at home which I use extensively for video calling with Duo. I used to be able to call it by selecting the "Call Home Devices" option at the top of the contacts list, but that option doesn't work anymore. When I select it, it just goes back to the contact screen. Google apps have been getting buggier and buggier lately, and it's so disappointing that Google can't seem to make reliable apps anymore.
----------
Hi, Ekene. You may refer to this link to fix problems using Google Duo on your display or speaker: https://goo.gle/3ojz1zK. As always, you can also ask a question in our Duo Community Forum: https://goo.gle/2nWc7E6. Hope this helps.

Lina

Every time I go on this app the video seems to be blurry and choppy, most of the time pixelated, the voices will cut in and cut out anytime they want and then speed up. Every time I report the issue nothing is ever done or I never get an email back, which makes me really upset because the quality is not very good. I give it two stars because I can at least video chat with people on here but the quality isn't good. I definitely recommend another app to video chat if your looking for one.

Jagan..

Great calling app. No questions. It is the minor bugs which did me from giving a 5 star. 1. The volume of the other party becomes too low all of a sudden while connected to Bluetooth. This gets fixed mostly if I disconnect and call again. But this is happening too often. 2. Overlapping calls. When I'm in a call in Duo and some one else calls me on my phone, the duo call is NOT getting put on hold and instead that too tensions active, creating confusions.

Rick

Excellent and video was so clear we could see the planet Venus in the night sky during a 3 way video. UPDATE- While the video is always perfect, the sound continually cuts in and out when communicating with Iphone users. Many times the Iphone users complain of an echo. I lowered my rating to 4 stars. They even purchased new Iphones and the problem continues. This needs to be fixed. This doesn't happen with a regular phone call, which is always perfectly clear. We use WIFI calling features.

There are a ton of bugs that prevent you from answering the duo call and the stability could use some work when on the call. I would rather use Instagram or another app to video call. I've even considered going back to apple for facetime as much as I hate that idea. But I'm loyal to android for it's customizable os. Fix this and you've got a great tool.

Mary

I love this app I use it a lot .the best thing about the app there is no adds . You can have lots of people to call on one screen. You can also add some contacts to your home a screen. Some times the calls are not clear. It's like calling some one but you can see them and you can have a group call.You can send notes and videos.The only thing I call on a phone now and I don't have affects anymore. I hope that helps ☺

Rylin

Duo is fine except that the video direction gets easily messed up between callers such that one person will end up sideways and there is nothing to do to fix it. It is super annoying. The image and sound more frequently becomes choppy and messed up than FaceTime but since that is not available on my Google phone I use Duo mostly. I like that it syncs access through my contacts and on the messages as well. Just wish it weren't so buggy, but honestly that most of Google phone apps.
----------
Hi, Rylin. If you are experiencing poor quality video calls, consult the troubleshooting guide: https://goo.gle/2YZC2Kw This is especially important if you have an older device, are on a low-strength network, or have other software on your device that may interfere with video calling. Hope this helps!

Eliza..

I don't know what's been happening in the last couple months, but I can't get a hold of anyone, and they can't get a hold of me. It just does that ring BEFORE it connects and NEVER connects. It used to be so reliable. I've tried restarting my phone, the app, making sure I had wifi, trying it with no wifi, etc. It just won't make any calls anymore. Also, like others, I don't get notifications unless I actually open the app. Usually it's a missed call because the other person can't get through.

Krysten

This app was great but now I don't get notifications that I have an incoming call or that I miss a call. I've done everything on support pages, everything on the Google suggested links and still nothing works. It appears multiple people have this same issue. So that tells me it's not the user but the app. Fix this. It will drive people to go to iPhone if not.
----------
Hi, Krysten. It looks like you're having trouble with missing or delayed call notifications. Check out this Help Center article for assistance: https://goo.gle/2SzISn8.

David

On my Chromebook, the layout of the buttons and the image is messed up. When I open the app, I see myself in the selfie camera. Off to the left, there is some reserved space for contacts and such, however, the buttons overlap the video image somewhat, making them hard to read. I don't know if it has any effect on the functionality, but it's visually unappealing.
----------
Hi, David. Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. We're sorry to hear that. We'll pass this along to the team so they can continue iterating on your feedback to make Duo even better. We ask that you submit feedback within the Duo app by clicking the Menu button then the 'Help and Feedback' tab and tap 'Send Feedback'. Thank you.

Dan

Decent enough application for video calls and messages but I am unable to use the filters and effects after changing to a new phone. These worked fine on my previous phone. But are now absent and while I see many people in the various support forms with the same complaint I can't pin down an answer as to why. I suspect there's an incompatibility of some sort at work because I can't even find any reference to them in the settings. Android version is 11.
----------
Hi, Dan. We're sorry to hear that. If you can't find effects or filters, you might have an older version of Android. Learn more here: https://goo.gle/3hpAHDp (see Can't find effects or filters section). Hope this helps!

Brad

Only had the chance to communicate with someone over in the Carribean Island while on the beach, so mostly broken up comunication and I assume due to the location. But when I spoke to the same person in their hotel room, the connection was a bit better. I'll have to try the app locally to give a fair opinion. It would be nice if you could upload photos to the app to send to someone or record why chatting live. I still like!

Morgan

Was a great app, but now when you use the drawing part of it it freezes the call and locks up the call so you have to hang up and make the call again. My kids and I always use the drawing part and it's one of the best ways for my 5yr to communicate easily. But since its stopped working and messes up the call it makes it hard for him. Please fix this problem!

Lisa

If using Bluetooth for a phone call, switching to Duo for video chat drops the Bluetooth connection. In order to video chat using headphones, you'll have to end the call and start fresh from the Duo app. It's not a seamless transition as it should be. There are other little quirks here and there that cause me to give it four stars, but generally the connectivity is good.

Michael

Knock knock should not be automatically on after installing and opening the app for the first time, as this feature makes a lot of people feel uneasy. Any type of device you install it on, Duo default settings have knock knock turned on. It's far too easy to just install it and open it and do a quick setup, and miss that intrusive feature. Users can easily install the app and not know this feature is in use. It is definitely a privacy issue.

Hi, Michael. Thank you for your feedback! We're excited to make Duo even better over time, so please continue sharing your thoughts with us.
