Google Duo is one of the easiest apps to make video calls and video conferences. As the app is developed by Google, you can sync all your Google services like Gmail, Google Drive, and more. In the smartphone screen, the video resolution may be small or underexposed. By installing the Google Duo on Chromecast with Google TV, you get the video call on a bigger screen.

In Google TV, you can install the Google Duo app directly from the Play Store. With the Google Duo app, you can make video calls with up to 32 users at once. Before installing the Google Duo app, you have to set up your TV to make some initial adjustments.


  • Most of the TVs don’t have a built-in microphone. So, you have to connect an external microphone for voice input.
  • If your TV doesn’t have a camera, connect a USB camera to your TV.
  • Ensure that your Goole TV has an uninterrupted internet connection.
