After introducing the Duo at 2016 developer conference, Google officially launched the app on August 16, 2016. Compared to the company's chat messaging service Allo, Duo has been proven to be a more successful product. The video chatting app has spotted 17th place as the most popular social media apps in Apple's App Store. Android Duo app has also crossed the 100 million downloads in Google Play Store which proves how rapidly it is acquiring more users. In addition, the app is also known for providing good quality video chatting service even with the not-so-good data connection.

Adding the new video call message option is another step from the company to challenge Apple’s Facetime app. Google also claimed that all the messages are secured with end-to-end encryption and the feature will be available worldwide in the next few days.
