Google recently announced that its Google Duo will now include features of the Google Meet (original). In its blog post, the company indicated that its Google Duo would be renamed to Google Meet. This new app would include video calling and meeting capabilities on mobile and web.

Google Duo—which allows one-to-one direct call or group call—will enable users to create or join cloud-encrypted similar to Google Meet and send links for the meetings. In addition, all calls will have an in-call watermark confirming their end-to-end encryption and no time limit.

Additionally, the merged Google Meet app will include features of Google Duo of storing call logs while also storing links of the previous meetings’ links.  Users would now be able to instantly call with features of the Google Duo app like effects and filters and send invitations to phone contacts to join Google Meet links.

Recently, Google also embedded Meet in the Gmail app. Users signed in with their email on the app can access the feature of creating Google Meet meetings, while users signed in with their phone number can only access calls.

After the complete rollout of updates, Google Duo users will be directed to the newer version of the Google Meet app while Google Meet (original) will remain on the Playstore and AppStore.

Google is planning to eventually stop the support for Google Meet (original) app. Users can continue to access it but will have to shift to the newly merged Google Duo and Meet app. “We’ll inform you when you should migrate to the new app experience,” Google says.
