More and more users already have a device or Smart TV with Android TV in their home. This made Google start betting more on this service and today’s news is one of the best additions it could make.
In the coming weeks, the Google Duo will finally reach Android TV. As Google stresses on its blog, this addition is intended to bring video calls to the big screen.
Soon you will be able to chat with your friends directly on your TV in the living room
The world has changed a lot since the Covid-19 pandemic began and one of the services whose demand has increased exponentially has been video calls. For that, Google has Duo, which is one of the best applications of its kind at your disposal.
Available now on your smartphone, web or Nest Hub, now it’s Android TV’s turn to receive it, albeit in beta. So, you won’t have to leave the couch just to talk to friends or family, and you can enjoy a much larger screen for that purpose.
It is very likely that your television does not have a built-in camera. But that won’t be a problem, because you can easily connect one, via USB, to your television and you’re ready to join the conversation.
Google Duo could “disappear” soon
This addition is just curious a few weeks after saying that the Google Duo, as we know it, may disappear. A decision that is, once again, quite controversial.
In any case, what is expected is that the Google Duo will be absorbed by Meet. What, on the one hand, ends up not being unreasonable since both applications share several features.
If this change is confirmed, it is certain that Google will eventually launch Meet for Android TV and continue what begins in the coming weeks. This is certainly one of the best new features that the technology launches for its operating system for televisions.
