And the old version of Meet also remains
The Google Meet and Duo epic continues, although it should have ended.
Some time ago, Google merged the apps, converting the Meet functions to Duo, and then renamed Duo to Meet. It’s not the clearest transformation, but the end result was a Meet app that combined the Meet and Duo features. However, there were users who didn’t like all this, and apparently there were quite a few of them.
That’s why Google suddenly brought back the Duo app. But again, it’s not easy. The company simply returned the name Duo to the recently formed after the merger and renaming of the Meet application, and at the same time returned the old icon. That is, the Meet features moved to Duo, then Google renamed Duo to Meet, and now back renamed Meet to Duo, but it’s still the same new app with mixed features.
But that’s not all. The thing is, it’s like Google now has three different apps, though actually two. Google Play now has the Duo app, which is the one described above. And apparently the description is also back from the old one, as it only mentions Duo features without Meet features. There’s also the Meet (Original) app in the store, which is an older version of Meet without the Duo features. Also, if Duo is already installed, opening it on Google Play will bring the user… to Meet.
The company has already responded to the situation, saying it’s not a mistake. Google purposely brought back the old icon and the old name so that people can find the Duo app when they’re looking for it. The measure is temporary, but it’s unclear how much. In addition, it’s unclear whether it will help, because after a while users will still continue to look for Duo, which they are used to.
