Google began handing out the Duo-Meet merger upgrade to a small number of Android customers last month. This is also true in some areas. 9to5 Google has now stated that the update has gathered momentum and is reaching many people – across several geographies on Android and iOS operating systems.
According to the source, handsets running Google Duo version 170 now have a new “Duo is improving” card at the top of the home screen. We confirmed this in our workplace, and it looks correct.
What has changed after the merger
Google Duo mainly keeps the same user interface. Certain things, though, have altered. While the Homescreen remains the same, pressing the ‘New’ button in the bottom right corner now contains Google Meet alternatives as well. These include ‘Create a new meeting,’ ‘Schedule in Google Calendar,’ and ‘Create group’ at the top, as well as the whole contact list of everyone available on Google Duo. This is precisely how it used to be on the platform.
