‘Meet (original),’ a video calling software from Google, is available right now.

Google stated in June that it would combine Duo and Meet in a migration that is presently in progress. As a result, Google’s original Meet app has been renamed Meet (original) and received a new icon.

Meet (original) was the old name for Meet on Android (and Hangouts Meet at the beginning). The firm intends to use the Google Duo app as the cornerstone for its most recent video/audio messaging strategy, which is reflected in the new name and green symbol, which pay respect to the Hangouts era and were first presented with version 2022.07.10.

Duo is now being enhanced to provide all of the business video calling features you would expect from a competitor to Zoom or Microsoft Teams. This comprises:

Virtual backdrops for meetings and calls arranged meetings During video calls, you can text. Display sharing Closed captions in real-time to improve accessibility a hundred calls

Google Meet Original

Nonetheless, Google Assistant integration on gadgets like the Nest Hub Max and Duo functionality like making calls with a phone number or email address will continue to exist.

Although the first stage of this transition is underway, Google will continue to use the name Duo until all functionality has been transferred.

Google Duo will then change its name to Google Meet after which the original Meet should no longer exist. Later this year, that ought to occur. Logistics-wise, this procedure makes sense given how Duo has compared it to Meet. Enterprise users, who can also use the Meet tab within the Gmail mobile apps, downloaded that app in large part.
