Google Meet (formerly Google Duo) is a cross-platform video calling app that brings high-quality video calls to your Android smartphone and tablet devices while keeping the interface simple. This will help you have face-to-face group voice and video calls with up to eight members, making it more straightforward and more comfortable to stay connected with your friends and family.
Not only that, this video calling platform is suitable for business meetings as well, as all of your calls and conversations will remain private thanks to end-to-end encryption. So you are not going to have any privacy concerns and can keep your focus on getting the real work done.
