What you need to know

  • Google continues its Duo-Meet merge today as Duo switches icons and names.
  • On Android and iOS, Google Duo will become Meet, and the combined app will share features from both video calling apps.
  • While the rollout begins on August 3, all users should have the updated Meet app in September.
  • The original Google Meet app is now called Meet (Original).

While Google Meet is most commonly used by businesses and Duo is used for enjoyable casual talk, the company is now merging both applications. With the migration slowly underway, Google has announced an update to bring it to its next phase.

Google will begin rolling out an update to Android and iOS users that will change the current blue Duo app logo to Meet’s multi-colored camera logo. According to Google, users will receive a notification letting them know that “Duo has been upgraded to Meet as their one app for video calling and meetings.”
