Google Duo to arrive on Android TV as native app

 

 

Google is introducing a few news ways to use Google Meet and Duo across a series on new devices to create a better meeting experience.

Google on Thursday has announced that they have plans to bring their consumer video chat app, Google Duo, to Android TV. It will be available as an app that can enable users to start video calls directly from their TV screen. A beta of Google Duo for Android TV will be released “in the coming weeks”.

“You can initiate one-to-one and group calls from the TV, and if your TV doesn’t have a camera built-in, you can simply plug in a USB camera.” – Google

On the other hand, Google has also enabled to cast meeting sessions from Google Meet directly to big screens with the help of Chromecast(2nd gen or later). The casting functionality also works on TVs with built-in Chromecasts and Nest displays.

“Meet on Chromecast will let you host or join meetings giving you the opportunity to connect with classmates, collaborate on projects, and even attend lectures.” – Google
