Google Duo chat app already topping charts

Google Duo launched last week and it's an impressively slick app. All it wants to do is connect you via video chat with whoever you want to call, and to make sure you get the best call quality and connection possible, even on mobile data.

And it has already proven really popular, with a Google engineer tweeting that it's the number one free app on the Google Play Store.

That's pretty impressive stuff when you consider that it's competing with the likes of Facebook and it's Messenger app as well as Pokemon Go and Snapchat. It's also kind of funny to see that this Google guy just refuses to have Messenger installed on his phone!

In Ireland, the picture is a little different- though Duo is at the top of the New free app category. The top app list in general though looks a bit different.

Still Duo released a little later in Ireland and could manage to top some of these with a little more time. We've used the app a bit and its main advantage is how streamlined it is, plus the Knock Knock features which lets you see who is calling before you pick up is pretty neat.

Download Google Duo now for free.
