Google launches low-light mode for video calling app Google Duo
Google announced that it has launched a new low light mode for Duo, the company’s video calling app for smartphones and computers.
"To make sure we’re constantly improving Google Duo, we visit people from around the world to understand the challenges they face in video calling their loved ones. There was one particular condition we saw people consistently struggle with across cultures and environments: poor lighting," the company said in a blog post.
Low light mode helps people connect with each other face to face, even when the lighting conditions aren’t optimal.
The video call will adjust so people in the frame are more visible when the phone detects dim lighting. Low light mode will start rolling out globally to iOS and Android users this week.
With low light mode on Duo, just start a video call and you can toggle the feature on or off as part of your in-call controls.
