How To Use Google Duo

Google Duo is a free service that allows you to make video and audio calls to your friends and family, no matter where in the world they may be. In this blog post, we’re going to walk you through the process of using Google Duo, step by step.

Step 1: Download and Install Google Duo

The first thing you need to do is download and install Google Duo. You can do this by going to the Google Play Store or Apple App Store on your smartphone, searching for “Google Duo”, and then downloading it. Once the app has downloaded, you can open it and start the setup process.

Step 2: Setting Up Google Duo

When you first open Google Duo, you’ll be asked to agree to the terms of service and grant the app certain permissions. These permissions include access to your microphone, camera, and contacts, which are necessary for making calls.

You’ll also be asked to verify your phone number. Google Duo uses your phone number to connect you with your contacts. Simply enter your phone number and wait for the verification code to arrive via SMS. Enter this code into the app, and you’re all set!

Step 3: Making a Call

Once you’re set up, making a call is simple. Here’s how:

  1. Open the Google Duo app.
  2. At the bottom of the screen, tap on the “Contacts” button.
  3. Scroll through your contacts and tap on the person you want to call.
  4. Choose whether you want to make a video call or an audio call.
  5. Wait for the person to answer, and you’re in a call!

Step 4: Receiving a Call

Receiving a call is just as easy. When someone calls you through Google Duo, your phone will ring, and you’ll see a notification on your screen. Simply tap the “Answer” button to start the call. If you want to decline the call, you can press the “Decline” button instead.


And there you have it! That’s all there is to using Google Duo. With its simplicity and ease of use, it’s a fantastic choice for staying in touch with your loved ones, no matter where they are. So why not give it a try today?
