The app also has a Smart Reply feature among many others,  which means that you will not even have to type anything most of the time.

With this app, Google is trying to make one on one video calling much easier for everybody. It doesn’t matt whether you are at different ends of the world, Duo will let you call whoever you want without any disruption. All videos are in HD and allow the users a preview of the caller before the call goes live.
