Google Duo has now added invite links on mobile just like its rival Zoom and other videoconferencing apps. This feature has been added to Duo to make it easier for people to connect on a group video calling when people are far apart from each other amid the COVID-19 lockdown.
Yet given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, more people than ever before are using video conferencing for casual hangouts at scales much larger than your standard video call. Looking forward to this increasing need of a reliable video conferencing platform, Google is tweaking its platform like Duo and Meet to make it more productive for users.
The app recently gained a bump in call quality thanks to Google supporting the new AV1 codec, and Duo also now supports up to 12 people on a call. Google also made Meet calls available for free to consumers at the end of April.
Invite links on Google Duo was announced back in the last month, as part of a broader feature rollout that including planned web support, which is still on the way. The invite links were said to be coming soon, and we can confirm they’re now active even in older versions of the app thanks to a server-side update on Google’s end.
So, from now, you will be able to add more people to your video call just by sending your invite links to the people to whom you want to add. As of now, this only works on mobile, including Android and iOS, meaning anyone clicking the link shared on the web won’t be able to join
