Google Duo is Getting a Low Light Mode

Posted on August 19, 2019 by Paul Thurrott in Android, iOS, Mobile with 0 Comments

To help users connect in non-optimal lighting conditions, Google Duo is picking up a new low light mode this week.

“To make sure we’re constantly improving Google Duo, we visit people from around the world to understand the challenges they face in video calling their loved ones,” Google’s Niklas Blum writes. “There was one particular condition we saw people consistently struggle with across cultures and environments: poor lighting.”

To address this issue, Google is introducing a low light mode to its Google Duo video messaging app. During calls, Duo will now adjust the picture so that people in the frame are more visible when the phone detects dim lighting.

Low light mode will start rolling out globally to iOS and Android users this week, Google says.
