Set up Google Duo

Before you set up and use Google Duo you need:

Get great video and audio quality

  • Check your lighting. If you’re in low lighting, Duo will adjust the brightness of your video. If you want to turn the setting off in a call, tap the screen and turn off Low Light mode . Or, you can turn it off in Settings.
  • You can switch camera views to show yourself or what you’re looking at in front of you. If the camera points to your face, hold your device at eye level to help others see your face.
  • Make sure nothing (ex: your finger) is blocking your device’s camera or microphone.
  • Connect to Wi-Fi before calling. Using Wi-Fi will save your data usage and also could be a better video connection. If you can’t, turn on your data.
  • Keep yourself centered on Duo video calls using Auto-framing. To turn the setting on in a call, tap the screen and turn on Auto-framing mode. Or, you can turn it on/off in Settings.
  • To stand out from your background, use Portrait mode to blur your background. To turn the setting on in a call, tap the screen and turn on Portrait mode. Or, you can turn it on/off in Settings.
