The Google Duo app is not available for Windows 10. But Google has released a web app for its voice and video calling service. With the power of Progressive Web Apps, Google Duo can also be installed using Edge browser on Windows 10.
Install Google Duo on Windows 10
The Google Duo app on Windows 10 can be installed and used in the best possible experience. This can be done by using only the new Microsoft Edge browser based on Chromium.
Open the Google Duo website on the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser.
When the website loads, select the menu button on the top right corner denoted by three horizontal dots.
Select Apps > Install this site as an app.
The browser will install the Google Duo website as an app with a XAML shell on your Windows 10 computer.
You will also find an entry for it in the All apps list in the Start Menu.
If needed, you can create a shortcut for it on the desktop, pin it to the taskbar or pin a tile.
It is worth noting that this app won’t get all the features immediately unlike it’s Android and iOS counterparts.
This is the default procedure to install a website as a PWP on the new Microsoft Edge browser.
I hope you found our tip useful.
