Google has just released the expected Duo app, Facetime for Android, a software that was presented several months ago during the Google I/O 2016. There have been some problems with access by users in a first time due to some limitations with the country of origin, but after a couple of days, it seems Duo is essentially available to all Android users. About a week after the release of Duo, the app has been downloaded more than 5 million times by users of Android.

Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, wrote a message on Twitter to share this news. In any case, once at this point, it will be interesting to see what the results of Duo not only on Android, but also on iOS, where the application is simultaneously debuted. Results of Duo downloads for iOS will probably not come to Android figures, but it would be interesting to see if the release of Duo can lead to a multi-platform option as valid.

Despite the launch of the app Duo, for now Google has given no indication on the release and start of downloads for Allo, the messaging application shown simultaneously with Duo, because at the moment is not yet available for smartphone users. Probably lies in the stretch, but now with Duo, after launching one wonders what is the fate of the Hangouts application that now just seems a duplicate functionality competing itself against that in conjunction known as Duo + Allo.

Duo, the Android Facetime, has been downloaded 5 million times in a week
