Google Duo app is going to get a new update soon and after this update, 32 people will be able to join video calls instead of 12.
Since the Corona epidemic, there has been a sharp increase in the demand for video calling. In such a situation, tech companies are making new updates to the video calling app almost daily. Now Google Duo is also going to provide a new feature update in the video calling app. Through which the Google Duo app can make simultaneous video calling from 32 people.
According to some online reports, Google is also planning to add new AR effects in its video calling app. This feature will enable the app to recognise and match the user’s facial expressions. For the unaware, Google Duo already has some AR effects but they can’t recognise a person’s facial expression. There is no confirmation from Google about the exact dates for when the update will be rolled out, but it is safe to assume that it will be out soon given the soaring demand for video-conferencing platforms.
Google Duo New Feature Update
As work from home demand has increased since Coronavirus, it has forced tech companies to introduce more users to single calling features. Earlier, Google Duo increased the maximum number of users connected to video calling to 8, and then the number was increased from 8 to 12. According to Android Police, its number is now being increased to 32. Search engine Google has also announced the maximum number of users joining Google Duo to 32.
The company has started sending email promotions to highlight these new features. However, when will the new feature rollout. No confirmed timeline has been given at this time. Google has recently given an update to the Family Mode of the Duo App, which gives an option to use doodles in video calling.
Google Duo Will Give Tough Competition to Likes of Facebook and Zoom
We have seen, leading social media platform Facebook has recently launched the Messenger Rooms video calling platform. Facebook’s Messenger Room video calling platform allows up to 50 people to conference simultaneously. Facebook account is not required for this. Similarly, in the paid version of the video calling app Zoom, 1000 users can be added in a single time. While 100 users can be connected for a maximum of 40 minutes in the free version.
Also, WhatsApp is also working on adding a maximum of 8 users in single video calling. At the same time, Reliance Jio is going to be bringing its new video conferencing app — JioMeet. Whenever it launches in India, there is a strong possibility that it will give a fierce competition to every other video conferencing platform as well.
