It’s only been a few days since we informed you about the transition of Google Duo to Google Meet and now we have another one. Today, Google tells us that changing the icon and name of Google Duo, turning it into Google Meet, is starting its rollout today.
We previously told you that after adding all the features of Google Meet to Google Duo, Google will change the name of Duo to Meet before the end of the year. According to Google, this change will actually begin today in a phased rollout that could take several weeks. By September, the full rollout should happen, with all users seeing an icon and name change.
In addition to changing Duo to Meet, the old Google Meet you currently have on your phone will be renamed to “Meet (original)” if it hasn’t already. As you can see above, mine has already been changed.
Also, starting today, Google is rebranding duo.google.com to display Google Meet. Over the “next few months” it will redirect to meet.google.com/calling.
