About battery cycles

Google

Google Duo is the highest quality video calling app. It’s simple, reliable, and works on smartphones and iPad, and on the web. Features: Works Cross-Platform. Duo works on iPhone, iPad, web, and other mobile platforms so you can call and hangout with friends and family using just one app. You can also share and join group calls with just a link. As mentioned above, in Google Meet vs Hangouts vs Zoom, Google’s primary difference is that it’s based purely online. That doesn’t, however, mean that there are no other tools that do the job. MeetInOne is a Mac app for Google Meet that gives you all the original functionality plus a few Pro features on top. Easily join and set up calls.

When you use your Mac notebook, its battery goes through charge cycles. A charge cycle happens when you use all of the battery’s power—but that doesn’t necessarily mean a single charge.

For example, you could use half of your notebook's charge in one day, and then recharge it fully. If you did the same thing the next day, it would count as one charge cycle, not two. In this way, it might take several days to complete a cycle.

Batteries have a limited amount of charge cycles before their performance is expected to diminish. Once the cycle count is reached, a replacement battery is recommended to maintain performance. You can use your battery after it reaches its maximum cycle count, but you might notice a reduction in your battery life.

Knowing how many charge cycles your battery has and how many are left can help you determine when a battery replacement is required. Your battery is designed to retain up to 80% of its original charge capacity at its maximum cycle count. For best performance, replace your battery when you reach its maximum cycle count.

Follow these steps to access information about your Mac notebook battery, including its cycle count:

  1. Hold the Option key and click the Apple  menu. Choose System Information.
  2. Under the Hardware section of the System Information window, select Power. The current cycle count is listed under the Battery Information section.

Identify your computer

Cycle count limits vary between Mac models. For help identifying your Mac notebook, use the Tech Specs page or these articles:

Cycle count limits

Use the table below to see the cycle count limit for your computer's battery. The battery is considered consumed once it reaches the limit.

I have recently downloaded Google Duo (similar to Skype) on my iPad and iPhone and want to get it on my MacPro, so that I can communicate back and forth to my grandkids who are in another Province. When I went into the App Store to download it, I'm told that this app is only available for OS Devices and it won't let me download it. Can anyone tell me why this is? I have upgraded to macOS Mojave - I wouldn't think this would have anything to do with it....any help would be appreciated.


Google Duo Para Macbook Pro

Thanks!
