Samsung Galaxy S20 features native Google Duo integration


Last updated: February 11th, 2020 at 20:19 UTC+02:00

After months of speculations and leaks, Samsung has finally made the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra official. It is evident that the company went the extra mile this year by offering almost all the high-end specifications that one could think of, be it a 120Hz display or a 5000mAh battery. Apart from impressive hardware, the South Korean smartphone giant also worked a lot on the software side of things with Android 10 and One UI 2.1.

With the Galaxy S20 series, Samsung worked closely with Google to natively integrate Google Duo into its phones. The internet search giant has worked on optimizing its video calling solution exclusively for Samsung. Google Duo has been completely integrated into One UI 2.1 that runs on the Galaxy S20 series. The feature offers a seamless communications experience to users. Korea Herald had reported about this feature last month.

You can find the Google Duo icon in the dialer, making it extremely easy to initiate a video call with any of your contacts (provided that they’re on Google Duo, too). You can even use the wide-angle mode of the selfie camera during video calls so that you can fit more into the frame, be it the background or a group of friends or family members. You can even use Samsung’s AR Emoji feature during Google Duo video calls.

If you use a Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, or Galaxy S20 Ultra, you can make group video calls with up to eight people at Full HD (1080p) resolution using Google Duo. However, Samsung says an optimal 5G connection will be required on both devices that are involved in a video call, though it should work great over a fast Wi-Fi connection as well.
