While testing a feature that will allow you to access group calls via links, Google Duo has received a new update that brings a number of improvements. The intention is to make the application more complete to become more attractive in the face of the competition.
So it will now be possible to log in and access the Google Duo using only the email address. According to Android Police, the news will be shown to the user as soon as he installs the update.
By adding your email, you can find friends and contacts easily. In addition, the novelty means that users no longer need to share the phone number, even if it is still necessary to register with the application.
The family mode is another feature that is officially contributing to the application. The novelty can be easily activated in the upper corner of the screen, as it prevents children from accidentally touching buttons that can end the call, for example.
The feature also brings some special filters and a new option for the adult to draw directly on the screen of your smartphone. Finally, taking advantage of the momentum of the family mode, the Duo also received some filters. You can see two examples below:
The first filter is special for Mother’s Day, while the second is aimed at those who are finishing college during the pandemic. Both can be used during a video call or even to record video messages for family members.
For now, the news is present in the latest version of Duo. However, as the distribution of the update happens slowly, we warn that it may take a little longer for you to have access to the resources on your smartphone.
