Google Duo climbs on the top of Google Play Store

Google Duo, the latest app by Google has topped the Google Play Store “Top Free” ranks within 3 days of the launch. Currently, the video-calling app is number one in Google Play Store in the USA region while number six in the Indian region as reported by Android Police.

The app goes toe-to-toe with other video calling platforms like Skype, Facebook Messenger, Viber, and BBM. It uses your mobile number to sign in and does not need a Google account to log in and use. This was proclaimed at Google IO 2016 along with Google Allo, the standalone chat app from the company.

Google Allo will soon join Duo in the play store to make a complete communication solution. An early confidential APK was leaked after Google IO which gave a brief idea about the general interface of the app. The unique selling point of the app is the ease of the UI and ease of use. The quality of the video calling as the first release is quite impressive.

Google Play Store Early Access Program Rolling Out To Everyone


Google Play Store is the official way for Android users to get Android apps apart from several third-party app stores like Amazon Appstore, GetJar, F-Droid, Samsung Galaxy Apps,App Lib, Opera Mobile App Store to many other sources.

The company is rolling out an easier way for developers to offer their apps for beta testing in the form of ‘Early Access’ program. This is a more streamlined and easier way to become a beta tester. It is a far cry from the formerly available method where the users had to request to join a Google+ group or register on beta tester page to join the beta testing. This will also help the developers monitor the feedback and gain a wider test crowd with an even wider range of devices.
