Duo, Google’s video chat service for consumers, will soon merge with Google Meet. Duo will soon get all of Meet’s features, including scheduled calls, and then, once the transition is complete, change its name to Google Meet. At that point, the current Meet app will simply launch the new Duo/Meet app. Both Duo and Meet use the same open WebRTC standard at its core, and Duo users will be able to continue to use Duo on a Nest Hub Max or similar smart speaker (or even a TV) today. This will happen over the next few weeks, though Google will take a very measured approach here and monitor its metrics for potential issues and slow the process down to fix bugs, if necessary. . . .
