A very frustrating part of using video-calling apps such as Google Duo or WhatsApp is that you need a phone number to get them up and running. When installing them on a smartphone or a phablet, that is not a problem but becomes one on most tablets. Sure, some unofficial methods to avoid it might be available, but we are not talking about them since we do not recommend the installation of apps from sources that might not be safe.

Google Duo's lead engineer Justin Uberti recently replied on Twitter to a user who asked about tablet support for the app. The user asked for iPad support to use Duo with his daughter, and the rather cryptic reply was "Stay tuned..." and nothing more. While some might say that the brief reply above is not a confirmation--and they could be right--we think that launching Google Duo for tablets is something that must be done as quick as possible. After all, it would be a pity for this app to fade away simply because of this.

Competing apps like Skype or FaceTime can already work across multiple devices (tablets obviously included), so Google needs to expand the reach of the Duo app since the initial user response was largely positive thanks to the user-friendliness and snappiness of this piece of code.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
