The Google 'Duo' app is a new release from the company that's set to be a new video calling solution for both Android and iOS users.

The app uses mobile numbers for calling and permits video calls from anywhere in the world, regardless of connection speed. Video calls on the app are shared in HD video, up to 720p. One of the neatest features of the app is 'Knock Knock,' which invites a user to a video call with a live video of the caller on the other end. Duo is also end-to-end encrypted to ensure that privacy and security are taken into consideration.

At this year's Google I/O, the tech giant also unveiled a second app called 'Allo' that introduces an effortless way to send messages with the all-new AI Google Assistant.
