Google Takes Down Skype And Facetime With This New Video App

Duo is here. Yes, you read that right. Google bought in a revolution with its new video app and is giving tough competition to Apple's FaceTime, Microsoft's Skype and Facebook's Messenger app. 

According to all the reports that we have read until now, the app shows no significance difference but having a special 'Knock, knock' feature that lets you see who is calling and you can easily opt to cancel the call. 

The new app was announced in May and is being released today as a free service for phones running on Google Android system as well as Apple iPhones. 

Just like Facetime, Duo only requires the phone number of the person to make a call, unlike many other apps that use a login id and a password to connect. Though we were already blessed with Hangout from Google but now that Duo is here, Hangout will specifically be for Business meetings. 

That sounds like a plan, let's check out more attributes, I bet you will love them too. 

If you count yourself as a big time Tech savvy, check out which app is killing your iPhone's battery to the most.
