What you need to know

  • The initial phase of Google’s effort to integrate Duo into Meet has begun.
  • A few users are seeing a new card in Duo, informing them that the app will be renamed Meet.
  • Google Duo will embrace Meet’s branding and icon in late 2022.

Google announced last month that it would start folding Duo into Meet in the coming months, and the company is now making good on that promise.

The search giant appears to have started rolling out the first phase of its plan to turn Duo and Meet into a single app. 9to5Google (opens in new tab) notes that users with the latest version of Duo are now greeted with a new alert on some of the best Android phones. When you launch the app, a new card appears just below the search bar informing them of the changes.
