Google Duo is one of the best communication apps that you’re probably not using. It’s simple to use, can be tied to your Google account, able to call your home devices and the quality is excellent.
It seems that one of the biggest issues many users have is potentially being resolved. If the setting found by Jane Wong is anything to go by, you’ll soon be able to allow others to find you by email.

This has been an option via the web interface for a while, but unfortunately, there’s a bit of a clumsy issue. Users who’ve logged in with email only won’t be visible on other users’ contact lists.
It’s unclear if this additional slider on the Android app is an option to find users, or if calls will be allowed based on email only. It’s possible of course, that the setting in only for searching. That would be a disappointment given the want of so many to just use their email address for Google Duo.
What lacking features are keeping you away from Google Duo?
