If you're on Android, you can see the caller even on the lock screen.i OS doesn't give devleopers access to the lock screen in this fashion, but if you have your phone unlocked and the app ready, you'll see the caller before you decide to answer.For an extra nudge, you can also directly ring just a few people or the whole group.This is the time of year to tell our friends and family how much we care about them and send best wishes for the year ahead.With 245 million people making video calls in Messenger every month, now we’re bringing everyone on Messenger the ability to turn group chats into face-to-face conversations no matter where you are – whether you’re down the street or halfway across the world.Chatting face-to-face live as a group is perfect for those spontaneous moments when text just isn’t enough… It’s the best way to share the news you just got a job (or into college), have your kids wish grandma a happy birthday, tell a funny story to the people you love or just see your friends live while wearing fun 3D masks (i OS only for now — Android coming soon) to an everyday conversation.Google will release a messaging app called Allo for text and images and the like—why they're separate apps instead of integrated, we can't figure out. The app will drop video and go to audio if network conditions are really bad, but there's simply no "make an audio call" button for some reason.
Group Video Chat in Messenger makes it simple and seamless to stay connected face-to-face.Each time you log back in on another phone, you'll have to re-verify.It really feels like it was designed for a single mobile phone at a time. Duo is cross-platform, but it’s only available for i OS and Android since they’re the two most used mobile operating systems.It's also not available for Windows, OS X, or Chrome OS..And if you’re calling someone, Duo will let you know that everything you’re doing can be seen by the recipient, so don’t try to pick your nose before they pick up!
This feature only works with people in your contacts, so random strangers can't flash you.
