Google has released a new ad, introducing Google Duo, the high quality video calling app that enables you to “be together in the moment with the people you love”.
“Awesome. Robots cutting our lawns.” – the voiceover says at the beginning of the 15-second spot, while on screen a a dog is shown barking at a quite small machine that seems to cut the lawn. “Not awesome: sounding like a robot on a video call. Isn’t it about time video calls just worked?” – the voiceover asks, introducing then Google Duo.
“High quality video calling by Google” – the voiceover says at the end of the spot.
The app, that can be downloaded for Android and iPhone, features a simple interface that brings video to the forefront, a live preview feature called Knock Knock, that enables users to see the caller before they pick up, ensures faster and more reliable video calls whether they’re on WiFi or on-the-go, as well as the possibility to make audio calls when they can’t have a video call.
