Google has begun the process of rolling out the web version of its Google Duo video chat service. Duo already has long ago been made available to Android, iOS, and Chromebooks, but expanding support for the web will make it a lot easier for users of the service to chat with friends and family members on many different devices.
Duo video calling on the web supports browsers like Chrome, Firefox, and Safari – but Microsoft’s Edge browser on Windows isn’t supported at the moment. The interface is fairly simple; it shows recent contacts listed at the top, a full list of all the user’s contacts is placed below. Google Duo on the web supports browser notifications for incoming calls.
While users on other browsers seem to be having issues accessing the Duo service for the web, it seems to be perfectly working fine for Chrome users accessing it via their non-G Suite accounts.
How To Get Started
To get started with Duo on the web, just head over to https://duo.google.com. If you’ve already got a Duo account and already signed in, you’ll see a search box with a list of your Duo-using contacts beneath it.
