Google Duo is amazing again and lets you share photos!

Google Duo is one of the fastest evolving applications in recent times, receiving a host of new features that make it even more versatile and complete. Clearly, being the best video calling app is not enough for Google.

Now, with the latest update (version 56) you'll be able to share photos with your contacts on Google Duo. This is a feature that had been talked about for some time now, and it seems that Google has finally decided to start implementing it.

How to upload photos on Google Duo

For now, this feature is at a very early stage, and it's not yet possible to share photos directly in the app. However, you can do so via the share button in Google Photos.

  • In Google Photos, open photo / image do you want to share
  • Click on share button
  • Search for google duo icon in application list
  • In Google Duo, you'll be able to add text in your image
  • In the last step you can select contacts to whom you want to send the image

Google Duo photo sharing

Obviously it would be much more practical if you could upload a photo directly from the app, which should happen in future updates.

When they send you a photo through Google Duo, you'll get a notification that will give you direct access to the image. This image is only available for 24 hours and can be viewed again through the main page of the uploader.

Whenever you are viewing the image, one button will always be displayed to initiate a video call and another to respond to the message.

Could Google Duo rival WhastApp and other messaging platforms?

Google Duo is by far the 'social' application of the most successful company, and arguably the most useful. However, when it was originally launched its purpose was only to make video calls.

Now that they have perfected its core functionality, it would not be surprising if they tried to expand Google Duo to other communication segments.

Gradually we see new features coming in like video messaging and sending photos / images. Should they decide to implement text chat support, Google Duo could easily become a true rival of WhatsApp, and other messaging platforms.
