Google Duo Crossed 1 Billion Downloads on The Play Store
Google's rival to Apple's FaceTime and WhatsApp Video is doing well.

Google's video chat app, Duo has now been downloaded more than 1 billion times on Google Play. The company launched Duo in 2016 along with instant messaging app Allo with much fanfare. "Duo hit 500 million downloads just six months ago, so another 500 million in that time span is pretty impressive," tech website Android Police reported.

In 2018, the company also added Duo support for iPad, Android Tablet, Chromebook, and Smart Displays.

The other instant messaging app, Allo, is not having such a good time of it. Earlier, the company has also said that its messaging app Allo will not work after March 2019 as the company focuses on improving its Android messaging and video calling app Duo. Allo, positioned as Google's messaging rival to WhatsApp and Apple iMessage -- is an instant messaging mobile app for the Android and iOS mobile Operating Systems (OS), with a web client available on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera browsers.
