Google is not good at social messaging applications like Google Allo but is good with video calling app Google Duo. With the increasing popularity day by day, Google Duo now comes with the support for group video calls with up to Eight people. The new feature was introduced yesterday by Google, and the users can update the app from the Google Play Store to access the new group calling feature. Google Duo is a video calling and chatting application that is gaining popularity from a wide range of people who want a reliable calling app, as WhatsApp Video calling feature is not good enough yet.
From the last few weeks, Google was expected to release the group calling feature. And finally, they’ve done the same for iOS and Android operating systems. All of the users of the Google Duo app on iOS and Android should update to the latest version from the respective App store to receive the update. The group calling feature is supported on the most recent version and not the older versions. Unfortunately, the Web Client for Chromebook devices hasn’t received the update so the users would have to use the smartphone for group video calling.
To start video calling to up to Eight people, the users need to tap on “Create group,” add Eight people and start the video call. The group call will begin immediately when you tap on the “Call” button. The space is currently limited for eight people, and the screen is divided as more and more people join the group call. As eight people fill up the entire screen and calling that many people is not advised on smartphones, the users can opt for Google Hangouts for better video calling experience. Nonetheless, this is an exciting addition to the Google Duo app, which will help the users to call more than one people quickly.
