If you want to install and use the Google Duo - Video Calling app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Google Duo - Video Calling in the search bar and press Search. Click on Google Duo - Video Calling application icon. A window of Google Duo - Video Calling on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • Phenomenal call quality

    By M. Piela
    Downloaded this app because I have ZERO cell service in my house and apple didn’t enable WiFi calling. So instead of stepping outside in the rain or freezing weather whenever someone wanted to call me at home, Duo has solved that. Call audio is the clearest I have ever heard on a phone call, like the person is on the other side of your phone talking at your ear. I have strong WiFi so I can’t say how it would perform if WiFi is spotty. I noticed that when you are not on WiFi and take a duo call over your cell service there is a bit of a delay between accepting the call and when the caller can hear you which can lead to some confusion, but still great call quality. Very simple interface, no bells and whistles, just works, and works great.
  • Why you should get this app!

    By lovefam123
    Hi guys I’m Jenna! I really love this app and definitely recommend it. It is awesome because you can FaceTime your friends and family, you can even send them little video chats, and you can also call them. When you FaceTime them the little box that shows your self if you tap it it reverses it if you don’t know what I mean just FaceTime someone and press the box were you are and then you’ll see what I mean. I gave this a five star because it is amazing it has different features then just like FaceTime. So if you think that you could just use the FaceTime app and it’s the same well... you are wrong. Please get this app it’s actually really fun. At first when I got it I thought it was going to be just like FaceTime, but I was wrong! I LOVE THIS APP!!!!!!!!!🙂🙂🙂🙂😃😃😃😃😄😄😄😄😁😁😁😁😀😀😀😀😀
  • Integral part of my long-distance relationship

    By Ohlivia_W
    The internet and cell service at my apartment is spotty at best, and my long-distance boyfriend and I had been continuously frustrated by this as it was difficult for us to skype, FaceTime, or Facebook messenger video call, and actually hold a conversation and be able to see each other, and even regular voice calls would drop or be noisy. Duo somehow has absolutely none of the problems of the other services, and my boyfriend and I are so happy that we can finally hold a conversation like we’re right next to each other instead of nearly 1000 miles apart. Since downloading the app, we haven’t bothered using anything else.
  • The quality felt like a movie

    By Cantare means To Sing
    You know when they show video chats in movies and it's so clear, it's as if they're editing live? This video was super clear like that. I like the Facebook messenger app video chat over FaceTime and Skype (anything is better than skype), but this Duo app is above all of that and way better than the hangouts iOS app. I have an iPhone 6s with 10.3.3 software. It worked so incredible for my call with my sister. The app downloaded in only a few seconds, so it's super lean and doesn't take up much storage space. My phone is getting old, so the battery drains quickly with video; but that's a phone issue. Highly recommend this app.

    By PurpleDancer11
    Hello! I really love this app. But I would like to see if you guys would suggest making it so we can add more than one person while we are FaceTiming. It would be great

  • DUO

    By proffesour
    This is the beast video Comunication. Even better than facetime
  • Love it!

    By burrito1000
    I absolutely love this app and how strong the video quality is. My only critique would be that they need to introduce a feature that allows you to video chat multiple people at the same time the way that FaceTime does. My dad is a truck driver and is on the road a lot away from my mom so it’d be nice if I could video call him when he’s on a break while being able to include my mom in the call at the same time.
  • Great app!

    By Ivy cream 😇
    If you have an iPad or an iPhone and your friend or family member has a Samsung phone or Google pixel, this app is perfect! It’s just like normal FaceTime except it’s not! I totally recommend getting Duo.
