During the coronavirus pandemic, when people have been forced to spend their time mostly at home, Google Duo has gifted it’s users with the facility to have a 12 people group video call at once.
Sanaz Ahari, Sr. Director of Product and Design at Google, has made the announcement a few hours ago at her Twitter handle. This comes as a relief to people who can connect across with friends and family without having to manually update the app on your phone to enable the functionality. This facility is effective immediately.
Last year it had added the ability to connect a total of 8 people on a single video call, which is the same as that of it’s competitor-Houseparty.
Although if you are a Google service user and want to connect with a larger group over the video call then there’s Hangout Meet service of the company. This service is enterprise-focused and exclusive only to G Suit business users. The maximum number has been increased recently to 250 for G Suite and G Suit for Education subscribers.
