Video conferencing is here to stay, at least for the foreseeable future. Answering calls on your phone or laptop can feel frustrating, but using a television to hold a meeting gives you the freedom to move around the conference room as if you were in the conference room. Samsung makes the best TVs you can buy right now. With Google Duo support, finally, you can call anyone from the comfort of your living room.
Samsung first announced Google Duo integration with the new Neo QLED TV at CES in January, and the app is now available on select devices. Paired with an optional USB camera, this latest set can play Duo natively by simply installing an app from the TV’s App Store. You need a Duo-enabled phone to log into your account, but once set up, you can make and receive calls freely on your TV. This app can support 12 users at a time. When used with the right camera, you can track around a room while moving.
This isn’t the only way users can make video calls on the big screen. If you have a Galaxy S21 Google Duo, mirroring your phone to a Samsung television is another feature announced at CES.
Samsung doesn’t have a full list of specific TV models that can take advantage of Duo integration, but it should be available on all 2021 QLED sets.
