Nice. I'm really hoping we get it soon.
It's very limited for the two reasons he mentioned 1) You have to have a number tied to the device and 2) You can only be logged in with it on one device at a time.
Why are these things being developed like this in 2016? Once again Google had a chance to really hit the nail on the head. They swung and they missed, again.
We have Google Voice, Google Hangouts and now Duo and soon Allo.
While they are all different in their own ways, the ultimate goal is to have all of this in one, or maybe two, apps to keep from having to switch back and forth to this app, that app and yet another app.
Knock Knock not being on iOS, massive fail, since that's the big feature that was really being introduced/pushed with Duo. Should have waited to release Duo on iOS until it had that feature.
I say just like everything else, Duo will be hyped up for a while then fade away like so many other Google apps or services. There's just nothing ground breaking here and I honestly don't see all the hype about it already.
I installed it and tested it. Video quality was good for a few minutes, then it got horribly bad. Not just once, not just twice but every time. It's not my connection because it happened to the person I was talking to and they were on iOS in their own home.
I really hope Google gets things together and makes something special one day when it comes to these kinds of apps. To have something as awesome as they made Google+ would be ground breaking!

Any Google+ user who has been paying attention can tell you that features != success, and it's clear this was not built with someone like me in mind, but this just feels sort of... bland. Video comes in clear, but I already knew it was going to do that because Google is already pretty good at that.
30 seconds in, with basically no one to call and test the service, I give it one awkward thumb in the general direction of up.
