It's as stable as any video chat I've used, even on crappy connections. If you've ever tried video chat, you know the pain of diagnosing connection problems, determining usernames, and figuring out how the app works. It's simple like phone calls, because Google imagines Duo as something like the evolution of phone calls.

Talking to a friend, in front of your computer screen, in your bedroom, with your headset, is very… To this day, I never actually had a video chat with the opposite sex who’s just a friend.
It’s even more intimate than going out just the two of you. I would feel anxious, agitated even – seeing his face and listening to his voice while knowing that he only has me in front of his eyes (it’s not like I can look at the scenery or comment on other people’s food orders or something like that) make me uncomfortable.
Shit, most couples have trouble with infidelity when they’re glued together 24/7, let alone separated for extended periods of time.
