Google Indonesia has revealed in its findings that Indonesians are the third highest users of the video chat application Google Duo. Indonesian people were also found to make the longest video calls in the world.
“Indonesians are the third highest users of Google Duo in the world, with the duration of their video calls being higher than average. Their calls last 10 per cent longer than the global average,” Fibriayi Elastria, head of Google Indonesia’s consumer marketing said.
According to the tech giant’s research on video call behaviour, most respondents use the feature because they feel more comfortable communicating while seeing people’s facial expressions.
The study involved 195 respondents over the age of 18, across Indonesia’s largest cities. 48 per cent of users call their romantic partners, while 40 per cent call their family members.
Google also found that Indonesian users talked longer compared to any other country in the world. Indonesians were found to talk 15 per cent longer than Brazilians and 50 per cent more than Indians.
As of December 2018, the USA had the largest number of Google Duo users, followed by India and then Indonesia.
