A novelty released by TCL promises to make life easier for those who wish to chat by video call and who have products from the manufacturer’s portfolio in their homes. On Tuesday (12), the company announced that the Google Duo application can be used in the brand’s new smart TV models, thus ensuring a new communication option.
“Given the growing need of the public’s demand, presenting the right devices is essential for the realization of quality calls, both in sound and image”, highlighted the company.
“That’s why TCL’s newly launched TVs are ready to use Google’s device in their versions: UHD 4K P715, QLED 4K C715 and QLED 8K X915.”
Prerequisites and Suggestions
While the QLED 8K X915 already has a retractable pop-up camera built into the device, requiring only the application to be installed, for 4K models, you need an external USB camera, which must be connected to the TV via USB port or HDMI.
Highlighting the “unprecedented” organic growth presented by Google Duo for Android TV – which “has added 10 million subscribers per week since its launch in October” – TCL defends the importance of its action.
“Because of the covid-19 pandemic, the year 2020 was a time of strong digital acceleration, where video calling became an indispensable tool for communication in the face of social isolation.”
Finally, the company indicates in which situations the app shows itself as a differential: “The novelty allows users of TCL’s smart TVs to chat even from a distance with family and friends and hold corporate meetings over video calls.”
