Google has improved its Duo app in the past few months by adding some new features and expanding the existing ones. In May, the web-based chat app added a family mode with cutesy Snapchat-like AR effects and a doodle board to make video chatting more fun for kids. Now, the tech giant has updated the number of active participants on a web group video call to 32.
This is the second time this year Duo has increased the maximum on video calls. Back in March this year, it expanded from eight to 12. The new upgrade gives Google’s video chat app the same capacity as FaceTime.
The step has been taken to make people more connected with their loved ones during the COVID-19 pandemic when people are said to maintain social distancing.
The update to Duo is rolling out with the latest version of Chrome, says Google’s communication suite lead, Sanaz, Ahari Lemelson, via his official Twitter account.
