Google Duo isn’t returning, yet its icon has deliberately returned on Android
In an entertaining new development today that is in all likelihood a bug, an update to Google Meet (which was beforehand the Duo application) on Android brings back the Google Duo symbol. Thusly, you presently have two methods for launching a similar application.
In solidifying its two video calling offerings into one, Google considered “Meet” the enduring brand. Notwithstanding, as far as implementation, the Google Duo application is the one leftover on individuals’ phones and being updated with a new homescreen and features from the two services. This is on the grounds that Duo has a lot bigger install base (5 billion versus 500 million).
Toward the beginning of August, an update (172) began carrying out that supplanted the blue Duo icon and presented the four-colored Meet version. In the wake of updating and opening the application, Duo disappears from the launcher.
Version 173 today brings back the Google Duo icon for some reason. In that capacity, you have both the Duo and Meet logos in your app drawer, with both attempting to launch the new brought together Meet-Duo experience.
Update: Google lets us know tonight that it purposefully carried back the Duo icon with this update on Android. It’s intended to assist with peopling that search/type “Duo” to launch the application. The organization is attempting to make the upgrade simpler for end clients.
It’s a confusing turn of events. For regular clients of the service, the organization has previously made sense of the change through a prominent splash screen and banner that you need to collaborate with to eliminate.
All things considered, it’s conceivable that the organization is seeing sufficient disarray that this change isn’t a mishap. (Individuals are communicating their annoyance about this movement on the Meet posting.)
Google still can’t seem to update Duo’s Play Store listing with the new branding. The organization is additionally wanting to update duo.google.com with Meet branding. In the mean time, the Meet application has a green icon to show that it will ultimately be gotten rid of for enterprise users, however that original experience stays in Gmail just like own tab.
