Finally, Google has rolled out “Duo” – the all new video calling app. Designed to provide a great video calling experience, Duo is set to compete against Skype, FaceTime, and Facebook Messenger. It is available for both Android and iOS.

It’s quite simple to set up and use Google Duo on your Android smartphone. There is one special feature called “Knock Knock” which has caught everyone’s eyes. It allows you to see what the caller is doing even before he/she receives your call. To me, it’s a nice feature as you instantly find out what your friend is up to.

But, what if you don’t want to show what you are up to for some personal reason? There is an option to disable “Knock Knock” easily. Let’s head over the jump to check out!

How to Disable Knock Knock in Google Duo on Android Phone

Step #1. First up, you have to launch Duo on your Android smartphone.

Step #2. Next, tap on the three-dot menu at the top-left corner of the app’s main screen.

Step #3. Now, you need to select Settings.

Step #4. Tap on “Knock Knock”.

Step #5. Then, Slide the toggle to off position.

That’s it! If you ever want to enable it, simply follow all the above-explained steps and turn on the switch.

Currently, Facebook Messenger is the most popular app that allows video calling. However, Skype remains a top notch choice for millions of users. Though FaceTime is great, it’s available only on Apple devices.

It’s great to see Duo launching on the horizon to provide a fantastic video calling option to both iOS and Android users.

The more options are available, the better it is for the end users. Wherever there is a tough completion, it’s the users who benefit the most. And the lack of it not only hinders the scope of innovation but also fails to serve the ultimate interest of users.
