Google’s video chat app Duo has now been downloaded more than 1 billion times on Google Play.

The company launched Duo in 2016 along with instant messaging app Allo with much fanfare.

“Duo hit 500 million downloads just six months ago, so another 500 million in that time span is pretty impressive,” tech website Android Police reported late on Saturday.

In 2018, the company has launched Duo support for iPad, Android Tablet, Chromebook, and Smart Displays.

Earlier, the company has also said that its messaging app Allo will not work after March 2019 as the company focuses on improving its Android messaging and video calling app Duo.

Google Duo has finally got a new feature to include images — Version 56 — which is now partially live and allows users to send Snapchat-like single photos to their contacts.

“Released on Thursday, version 56 of Google Duo adds the application to Android’s system share sheet, including in Google Photos and Files. This allows users to message any saved photo on their device via Duo.

“Once in the app, you have access to the same tools as when sending a video message. This includes drawing and adding text with multiple colours and sizes available.

Since Google has shut Allo down and with Hangouts seemingly more focused towards enterprise users, we suppose it makes sense that the tech giant would want to bring some messaging-like features to Duo as well. (IANS)
