Google Duo is one of the leading apps for video calling, especially on Android smartphones, but it’s available for Apple iOS as well. It is very relevant and is somewhat a corrival to Apple’s FaceTime, with the key difference between them being that the latter is solely available on Apple devices, while Duo works on Android as well as iOS and Mac.
This app is quite straightforward and easy to use because it is not bombarded with a myriad of features. As a result of this, Google has recorded up to 1 billion downloads of the app across platforms. However, some of the challenges you could possibly experience as a user of Google Duo could be that of deleting or downloading the call history.
This article contains all you need to know about how to delete or download Google Duo call history on your devices.
How to Check Call History on Google Duo
Basically, there are three ways or techniques to go about checking your call history.

- Another way to view your call history on Duo is by viewing the full call history. Basically, at the bottom of the home screen of the app, you see the icons of the profiles of contacts you’ve recently contacted and then you swipe up to see the full history.

From the home screen of the app, swipe up and select a contact you’ve ever had a video call with and tap on the contact. After that, you’ll see a “See history” icon which can be seen on the right side of the screen and then you tap on it.
