While Google’s next-gen chat app Allo has fallen by the wayside, for me and a good number of people, their Duo video calling app has gone from strength to strength. The latest update is the ability to use Duo on your tablet.

Google announced the updated functionality on their Twitter account, noting that the feature would be rolling out over ‘the next few days’.

Google Duo can now be installed on multiple devices, including tablets (or at least it can shortly) thanks to the multiple device support added back in July.

Duo has been fleshed out quite nicely since its launch, though there are still a number of features including Group Video calling which would be nice to see. No word on when, or if that’s been worked on, but at least users can now use it on a number of devices.

With support for tablets now available, there’s always a question of getting either a web app or native apps for both Windows and Mac users to use on their systems.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
