Today, Google revealed it'll be rolling out Google Duo for Android TV as a beta sometime within the next few weeks, allowing users to form video calls employing a big screen, instead of crowding around their laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
The feature was only briefly mentioned within the blog post, and no specifics were mentioned regarding implementation, the interface, or anything . The blog stated, “In an attempt to bring the video calling experience to more parts of your home, Google Duo is rolling out a Beta on Android TV within the coming weeks. With Google Duo, you'll initiate one-on-one and group calls from your TV, and if your TV doesn’t have a camera built-in, you'll simply connect a USB camera.”
Earlier this month, Google added Chromecast support for Google Meet, during a similar move. This feature is great for taking video involves work and for college kids and teachers participating in online learning. The blog post briefly touched on a couple of other points, reminding us that both Meet and Duo work well on the Google Nest Hub Max, which the Acer Chromebase and ASUS Remote Meet Kit from Google Meet hardware can automatically sync together with your Google Calendar, and is yet one more option for optimizing your headquarters for online meetings.
