Google Duo’s group calling feature will soon add up to 32 people. Currently, only 12 people can make group video calls simultaneously on this platform. Earlier in March, only 8 people could be part of a group video call.
Google Duo recently announced that users will now be able to make group calls via the Web medium as well, soon this feature will be rolled out to users in the coming weeks. Now a few days after this, now a new big change information has been given, according to which Google Duo will soon increase the number of video calling members in the app.
Google confirmed this to a publication. According to the report, the company claims that soon 32 people will be able to enjoy video calling simultaneously on the Duo. Let me tell you, this new change is being made at a time when most people around the world are locked in their homes due to the corona virus epidemic. Neither any office is able to go nor is anyone meeting anyone. In such a situation, millions of people working from home and away from their families have only one way to face the outside world, that is, video calling apps.
As reported by Android Police, Google has confirmed to the publication that the group calling feature of Google Duo will soon add up to 32 people. Currently, only 12 people can make group video calls simultaneously on this platform. Earlier in March, only 8 people could be part of a group video call. Recall, Google Duo’s group calling feature started in April 2019 with 4 members.
To help people in times of crisis, now all apps are changing their features according to the need. Apart from increasing the number of people on the Duo from 12 to 32, a new feature is also reported to be added and that is AR effects, which matches the facial expression of the users. Through its recent updates and changes, the Google Duo app is giving a tough competition to the video calling features of Zoom and Facebook.
Significantly, Google had also said earlier that the number of members in Google Duo’s group calling will be increased soon, although at that time it was not clear how many people would be added to the group calling. The 32 members were also claimed in a promotional email.
In its promotional email, Google has promised to add AR effects to the Duo call, which will change based on users’ facial expressions. Let us tell you, Google Duo still has AR effects, but currently it does not change with facial expression.
Apart from this, Google recently announced that now Duo users will soon be able to make group calls through the Web version platform. This new feature will soon be rolled out in the coming weeks. First its preview will be available on Chrome and then it will be released on a large scale. Apart from this, a new family mode has also been added to this video calling app, which will provide you with fun effects and masks to make the time during video calling even more fun.
It is also not clear when this new feature will be rolled out for Google Duo. However, it would be perfectly safe to assume that this new update will be released in the coming days, as Google has started sending promotional emails according to the news.
