Google Duo increases group video calling. Now it allows you to join eight people in a single call at once. Previously, you were able to make a call to only four people at a time. Google increased the limit of group video calling feature just days after it rolled out the anticipated group video calling feature in its Duo service. Initially, the feature was only limited to Indonesia but now has been expanded to Brazil, Canada, India, Mexico, US, and other regions.
Google Duo Increases Group Video Calling Limit to 8 People
The increase in Google Duo group video calling limit from four members to eight users was first revealed by Engineering Lead of Google Duo and Principal Engineer at Google Justin Uberti in a tweet.
Users are not able to add people during the call, they can only add members before the call. If you want to discontinue the call, you will find a dedicated button for ending calls and another for creating new groups. However, it is not clear that if creating a new group will cut the existing call or just put it on hold.
Now Google Duo became a stronger competitor against WhatsApp with the increase in the group size limit, as WhatsApp also allows group video calling.
