New low light mode for Google Duo video chat

Google’s got an option for you if you’ve ever been making a video call, and you look too dark. The tech giant company today revealed low light mode for its Google Duo video chat service. It’s precise like it sounds, changing the brightness of your video feed.

Niklas Blum, Senior Product Manager, Google Duo today stated in company’s official blog:

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. There was one particular condition we saw people consistently struggle with across cultures and environments: poor lighting.

In many places, electric lighting is a significant challenge, preventing people from connecting face to face. People often light their homes with a single bulb when electricity is expensive, and even then, power outages remain common in many areas, leaving people in the dark during the evening when many video calls with family and friends happen. Even when electricity is not an issue, many people just want to video call to say good night right before bed, keep each other company as they watch TV together or enjoy a quick chat while they’re outside in the evening.

These challenges are the reasons why we are bringing low light mode to Duo.

How the new feature of Google Duo works?

It does not need any unique hardware, and only in case, you believed this might be a Pixel-specific function. It’s going to be presenting to all devices utilizing Duo, consisting of both iOS and Android devices. There will be a toggle within the call that you can turn on to immediately change your brightness.

Brightness controls within video chat apps are nothing new. Numerous apps like Skype enable you to by hand, change the setting. The something that seems various with Google’s offering is that it’s only a switch, which will instantly turn it to ideal settings.

This Low light feature will roll out for Android and iOS this week
