Google Duo upgrade can save users from poor internet connections — here’s how

In a world where video calls have become the norm in our everyday lives, smartphone video chat app Google Duo is giving a boost to users with low-bandwidth internet connections, thanks to its newly introduced AI codec. 

Announced via a Google AI Blog post, a new speech codec called Lyra is set to improve voice communication by compressing the user’s speech into a lower bitrate “even on the slowest networks.” That basically means there’ll be a reduced chance of glitches, dropouts and freezing, and thus less disruption in video calls.
