Google has a smartphone app for all of our basic needs. For video calling, you can use the Google Meet app. With the Google Meet app on your Google TV, you can connect with up to 250 people. Though Google Meet is a video calling app, it is not used by all. The app is preferred by corporates for video conferencing purposes. To have a video call with your friends, we recommend you use the Google Duo app on your Google TV device.
