Google recently integrated its Duo and Meet apps into a single offering. Meet (original) now appears with a new green logo for Android users. Users can access the new Duo-Meet app on Android TV to schedule and accept individual and group calls. According to reports, the TV must have Android 8.0 Oreo or a higher version.
Once downloaded, users can access Duo through the app drawer on their TV and add it to the list of favourites to access it via the home screen.
- Stable internet connection
- Android TV with Android 8.0 Oreo or a higher version
- USB camera and microphone connected to your Android TV (if a camera or microphone is not inbuilt)
Steps to setup Google Duo on Android TV
Step 1: Download Google Duo on Android TV via Google Play Store.
Step 2: Log in to your account.
Step 3: Select ‘Give Access’ and follow on-screen instructions to complete the setup.
While using Android TV Box, users will have to connect the camera’s USB port to it. The app does not work on a non-Android TV with Chromecast support. Users would be able to record audio using a USB microphone when attached to the Android TV but cannot adjust the audio on Duo calls using the remote.
