Google Duo is Google’s video calling app, but given that video calls can take place anywhere and at anytime, sometimes quality can be less than stellar, especially if taken in low-light environments. Of course, this has to do with the camera hardware where some lenses allow for more light, but software plays a role too.
In a bid to perhaps improve on the quality of Duo video calls, the folks at 9to5Google have discovered that there is some evidence that Google is working on introducing a new low-light feature to the Duo app. There are strings mentioning a “Low Light mode” for the app, but that’s about it, although we guess it’s not that hard to figure out what this mode seems to suggest.
In addition to a low light mode, the APK teardown of the Duo app has also revealed that there will be an upcoming dark mode, which isn’t surprising given that Google’s apps have been slowly updated over the years to introduce dark mode to their apps. There is no word on when these changes are expected to be rolled out, because for all we know these are features that are still being worked on, but we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more information regarding a release.
