Improve Video Quality Like WhatsApp?
Google Duo 5.0 version is said to improve the video quality at a massive rate. Earlier, Duo's video quality was decent enough, however, Google has now decided to upgrade the video quality.
This improvement might give a tough competition to WhatsApp video calls, which still needs improvement on quality.
