Google added support for several Chromebooks to Google Duo, allowing users to utilize the video chat service on their devices. It did this quietly and didn’t really say when Duo will be compatible with any and all Chromebooks. That appears to have happened now. Google Duo apparently supports all Chromebooks now.
The HP Chromebook X2, Samsung Chromebook Plus V2, and others were some of the models that had initially received support for Duo over the summer.
Android Police has found that Google Duo support is now present for all Chromebooks. They have tested out the video chat service on multiple devices such as the ASUS C223 and Acer Chromebook R13.
The scribe reports that they have been able to use Duo on all of these devices even though they weren’t included in the list of devices that got support for Duo earlier this year. It’s even said to be working on the Pixelbook, a device that many would have expected to be one of the first to get Duo support since it’s Google’s own.
The setup process for Google Duo on Chromebooks is similar to how it is on an Android tablet. Since it’s now a web app, users will need to download the Duo app from the Google Play Store in order to use it on their Chromebook. It will be relatively easy to sign in as long as they have already set up Duo on a phone previously and tied it to a phone number.
