Google Duo Rolls Out on the Web for Desktop Video Calls on Chrome, Firefox, and Safari

A new Google Duo web client is now available for video chat calls on Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, bringing its UI to desktop…

Tech site Android Police took notice of something only yesterday. Google has added its Google Duo chat service to the internet for desktop use.

Duo already exists on Android, iOS, and works on Chromebooks. But, now, it’s on the web, making it more accessible from various devices, including laptops.

Google Duo Web Client, Video Chat Platform, Rolls Out to Desktop

The new Google Duo web client, located at https://duo.google.com, seemingly works with some popular browsers. Tests of Chrome, Safari, and Firefox all work. However, it isn’t yet compatible with Microsoft Edge on Windows.

It’s now possible to place either video or voice calls. (Although, both parties must be registered with the service. Meaning, it only works when someone reaches out to another person with an active account.)

Google originally debuted Duo inside its now defunct Allo messaging app. While it does not have the popularity of its incumbent rivals, by bringing it to the web, Google might attract more users.
