  1. Can I use Google Duo on my Mac? I am using facetime on my Windows PC using MacOS but not good. So want to move to another app. Please recommend the best app for video conferencing for Mac and iPhone.

    1. First of all, thank you!
      Zoom video conferencing app is the best right now for official work and group meetings. If you want to make video calls with your friends then Google Duo, Skype, Viber, IMO, and Facetime are always there.
      You can use them on iPhone, Mac, and Windows.
