Google Duo is one of the easiest video chat apps out there, but it’s not only for video. You can make audio-only calls, too, and the sound quality is much better than a typical phone call’s. We’ll show you how.
Like with video calls, the voice calling feature works on iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets, and computers through a web browser. It’s just a matter of choosing “Voice” instead of “Video” when starting a call. We’ll cover each of these platforms.
Next, simply select the smaller “Voice Call” button instead of Video Call.
Google Duo will now ring on the recipients’ end. In the voice call, you’ll see a blank blue screen with a couple of buttons for muting your microphone, ending the call, and enabling speakerphone.
That’s all there is to it for the Google Duo mobile apps. The process is quite similar on a computer in the web browser.
Next, choose a person to call from the contacts list.
Select the “Voice Call” button.
If your browser asks permission to access the microphone, click “Allow.”
Google Duo will now ring on the recipients’ end. While in the call, you have the option to mute your microphone, enter fullscreen mode, and change settings in reference to video and audio sources.
That’s all there is to it. Now, you can make easy calls from any device and you don’t have to comb your hair first.
