Users must have Android TV with Android 8.0 Oreo or higher version, a USB camera and microphone if no camera or microphone is built into the Android TV or Android TV device, and a stable Internet connection.
Video calls have become an integral part of our lives, especially during the pandemic. Video conferencing apps have added relevant features over time to give us a better experience.
Google is also popular for its frequent updates and innovations. The American tech giant long ago announced its Duo calling service for Android TV.
Here’s how to set up Google Duo on Android TV
Google has merged its two video calling apps i.e. Google Meet and Google Duo. All Google Meet features are now available with Google Duo, which combines the two video calling services into a single solution.
Google has updated the original Meet app and made it available for Android users with a new green icon and name change to ‘Meet (Original)’.
One can use the new Duo-Meet app on Android TV to schedule and accept individual and group calls. According to reports, the TV should have Android 8.0 Oreo or above version.
Steps to setup Google Duo on Android TV
Step 1: Download Google Duo on Android TV via Google Play Store.
Step 2: Log in to your account.
Step 3 : Select ‘Give Access’ to complete the setup and follow the on-screen instructions.
While using the Android TV Box, users will have to connect the USB port of the camera to it. The app does not work on non-Android TVs with Chromecast support.
Users will be able to record audio using the USB microphone when connected to an Android TV, but cannot adjust the audio on Duo calls using the remote.

Step 1 : The USB port on your camera must be plugged into your Android TV box if you use one.
Step 2 : If you are using Chromecast on a non-Android TV, Duo will not work.
