“After testing it for the past few months, Google finally adds group video calling feature to its video chat app Duo”
Google has started integrating group video calling feature to its video chat app Duo. The feature is live on select regions only and comes after being in testing for several months. According to Google Duo head Justin Uberti, the group video calling feature has been rolled out “in select regions,” with Indonesia being one of them. The Mountain View company will most likely make the feature live in other countries, including India, as well in days to come.

There is a short video that shows Google Duo group video calling in action. This clip shows the feature is located underneath the search bar and denoted with a “Create Group” button. To start a group video call, just tap on the button and add the persons you want to host the group video call with. You can the save that group for quick access later too. It seems that you can only make a group video call via Google Duo to a maximum of four people right now; however, earlier tests had shown that it supports up to seven people.
Google is finally expanding Duo beyond one-to-one communication. Initially, the new feature on the video chat platform will only be available on Android devices. Other than that, the app recently updated with Data Saver mode, as well as a redesigned home screen and calling flow.
