Google Duo was first announced on Google I / O 2016 with Google Allo. You may be aware that Allo finally gets ax in a few months, but the story with the Duo is quite the opposite. It has seen extensive success and even ships pre-installed on many Android devices.
This fact is probably the most important contributing factor in today's 1,000,000 installation environment. As AP notes, only one app that doesn't come pre-installed – Subway Surfers – has over 1 billion downloads on the Play Store.
In Google's latest update on the status of company messages, Duo was a leading focus. In newly created 2 of 2 message app grids covering both "friends" and "layers", it acts as the video counterpart of the previous category.
