Google set to merge Duo and Meet in a single app
Google announced today that it will merge Duo and Meet, two of its video-calling apps, into a single platform. Soon, Google Meet will be the sole calling app consumers will need for almost everything in their lives, and Google hopes it will be that app.
Google hopes that by combining the two, it will be able to address some of the issues that plague modern communication systems.
Meet has evolved into a robust platform for meetings and group conversations of all kinds in recent years, whereas Duo has remained primarily a messaging software. Google claims it will bring all of Duo's capabilities to Meet in the future, and it appears to believe it can provide the best of both worlds.
