Whether you’re using it on an Android phone or a web browser, Google Duo is a great way to make group video or audio calls. Plus, you can customize your settings so that you can decline calls from strangers.
Knock Knock feature
Google Duo is a new video chat app that works on Android and iOS. It competes with other apps like Skype and Facebook Messenger.
The app also has a unique feature called Knock Knock. This allows you to see a live video feed of your caller before you answer.
It can also give you context about the person you’re talking to. For example, you could see an engagement ring or movie tickets.
If you don’t want to use Knock Knock, you can disable it by going to the settings page for the app. Here, you’ll see a slider to control it. To turn off the feature, slide the toggle to the left.
Another feature you’ll see is “low light mode.” This is a feature that helps you see better in low-light conditions.
Depending on your smartphone, you may be able to switch between two different cameras when making a call. You can also choose to mute your microphone.
You can also set a limit on your mobile data. However, this is usually on. In India, the cost of data is high.
Group video calls
Google Duo is a mobile video calling app that allows you to make one-on-one or group video calls on your Android or iOS devices. It is similar to Skype, but it works on more devices and lets you add pre-recorded audio or video messages.
In addition to making group video calls, Google Duo offers a number of other features. For example, you can choose to have a family mode, which will allow you to doodle on the screen. You can also add masks and other effects.
Another feature is Knock Knock, which allows you to see the live video of the person you’re calling before answering. Currently, Google Duo has an eight-person limit for group video calls.
However, in the coming months, Google will roll out an update that will increase the number of participants. They will also introduce a low-light mode. This will make it easier for you to be seen in a dim light.
In order to use Google Duo, you will need an active phone number and a Google account. Using a Google account allows you to link your contacts to your Duo account. Once you have your contacts listed, you can call them by selecting a contact.
Customizing settings to decline calls from strangers

If you want to take it a step further, you can even enable automated call verification, should you need to verify your contact’s phone number. Likewise, you can control which of your contacts gets access to which of your contacts’ photos, and more.
To take advantage of all the features of Google Duo, you need to create an account. Once you’ve registered for an account, you can start making video calls and interacting with your contacts.
Data saver mode
Google Duo, a popular mobile video calling app, recently added a new feature: Data Saver mode. This allows users to save up to 50% of their data usage during video calls. The feature compresses the video quality and limits the amount of bandwidth used. By default, Data Saving Mode is enabled, but it can be disabled.
If you want to try out Data Saving Mode, it’s best to make sure you’re running the latest version of the app. You can find the feature in the settings section of the app. Once you open the Settings menu, click the three-dot menu in the top right corner and select Data Saver.
Before enabling this feature, you’ll be able to preview what the video quality will be like. If you’re happy with the result, you can activate it. As soon as you activate the feature, both the caller and the callee will save their data.
In order to use the Data Saver, you’ll need to be using the Android version of the app. If you don’t have it yet, you can enable it on the iOS version, but it’s not known whether it’s widely available or not.
