Duo's registration is quite similar to WhatsApp. You need to feed your phone number for getting started and make calls to everyone on your contact list. Though the Google Duo looks quite simple initially, it does pack a number of features.

To make Duo experience further an effortless task, use these 13 useful tips and tricks.

1. View Duo Call History

Duo app shows the recently contacted people at the bottom. However, the call history doesn't carry a few basic details like the time and duration of the calls.

To view your detailed call log, you need to open the dialer or phone app on your device. That’s because Google has integrated the call history into your phone’s dialer app on both Android and iOS devices.

Note: If you don’t see Duo call log on your Android phone, go to device Settings > Apps > Duo > Permissions. Enable Phone from there.

2. Make Calls Directly from Dialer

Without opening the Duo app, you have the freedom to make calls directly from the dialer. To do so, open the dialer app and tap on a contact's photo. Then tap on Duo video or voice call.

3. Remove from Recent Contacts

To remove contacts from the recently contacted box in Duo, tap and hold on their contact name. Then tap Remove from recent contacts.

4. Download Call History

If you want to download your Duo call history, you can do that too. For that, you'll have to dig a bit into settings since there's no quick option available.

On Android devices, open the Duo app and tap the three-dot icon at the best-right corner. Select Help & feedback.

Meanwhile, iPhone and iPad users need to open the Duo app, and tap the three-dot icon followed by Settings. Then tap on About, terms & privacy followed by Export call history.

13. Block Duo Contacts

If someone is bothering you on Duo, you can block their calls. Blocking on Duo will not affect your communication with the contact outside Duo. They'll still be able to message and call you via other apps.

To block a contact, tap and hold the contact name on Duo. From the menu, select Block number.

Do It with Duo

When it comes to video calling, Google Duo competes with the likes of WhatsApp, Skype, FaceTime, Facebook Messenger, and others. It comes pre-installed on most Android phones and works iOS as well. It enjoys an extra privilege of working with unregistered numbers too. While the latter is debatable, the perks such as not worrying whether the other person is using the same app or not surpass its shortcoming.
