Google Duo upgrade will fix the worst thing about video calls

Poor internet connections can ruin a video call, turning a group chat into an irritating mess of glitches, hanging and dropouts. But Google Duo aims to tackle that with the power of artificial intelligence.  

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.
