Highlights of the Story

  • Google Meet can replace Duo in about two years.
  • The decision to merge the two services was by G Suite head Javier Soltero.

Google’s Meet is now a major competitor to Zoom as an alternative. This is happening in the rise of the work-from-home culture around the world along with remote learning. On the other hand, Google placed its communication services — Duo, Messages, and Android’s Phone app — under the leadership of G Suite head Javier Soltero in May this year.

In a report by 9to5Google, G Suite head spoke on how Duo and Meet coexisting in the same field does not make sense to his employees.

This plan will come to fruition with several key features of Duo moving over to Google’s Meet. Many key features like end-to-end encryption, contacting users for a video via a phone number, and even 3D effects.

According to reports, the development team of Duo would be handling the further development of Meet. In a report, Google’s Meet is growing daily with 3 million new users. As compared to 10 million signups per week for Duo. This leaves behind the Duo’s growth.

Internally, this is being described as a merger of the two services which is codenamed “Duet” – Duo and Meet. Google’s new roadmap shares new features that it will be bringing to Meet to aid the education system. 

According to 9to5Google, this new transition could take up to two years.
