Google is merging its two video-calling platforms into one new service called Google Meet. On phones, the Google Duo app will be renamed Google Meet later this year, and will gain a variety of new features from the existing Meet platform. The existing Google Meet app will be renamed Meet Original, and eventually phased out. On the web, Meet will remain a Zoom competitor, but be interoperable with the new Meet app (formerly Duo), allowing people to be easily reached for a video or voice call by either email address or phone number.

Google Never Fails...

...to give up on a product and sew confusion in the voice/chat/messaging arena.

Hopefully it continues to work on Google TV

I absolutely love using Duo to video chat with our family ever since the pandemic started...our daughter is much more responsive to chats up on the TV and also means she can move around the living room and still be caught on the camera. That said, all they have to do is merge in Google Chat and Messages and they can re-create Hangouts in it's glory days ;-)
