Facebook's Take On Google Duo With 'Instant Video'

Its not been much time that Google released Duo, the lightweight video chat app which goes one to one and is super easy and fast to use. It received positive reviews mostly and why not, the app is really cool to use and you really don't get to see a video chat app having a package of under 8mb. This size thing and good quality of conversation made the app stand out from the line of infinite video chat apps. Now, Facebook which keeps its chin up everytime has come up again and introduced Instant Video to its already much popular Messenger app. Facebook, you really can't see anyone going better than you, Can you?


Now, coming on to interface you already know Messenger is a storage and data hungry (in a sense consider it a Hulk for that), on the other side Duo is simple and efficient. Facebook has done something different with Instant Video as the interface can be switched between full screen to floating window which seems cool when used. This is not present in Duo and we really don't think that this will be implemented anytime soon as there is no one to chat with texts so floating window doesn't make any sense in Duo.

Here’s how it works: You and your friend both have to be on the latest version of Messenger. Then, while both of you are viewing an open Messenger conversation, tap on the video icon in the top right corner to start sharing real-time video. Audio is off by default but can easily be turned on if you want. Floating video over the conversation looks real cool and allows you to multitask within the same app with ease. It's fast, it's simple but remember that it adds the ability to eat your storage and data both in a more enhanced way than messenger has been doing.
