Google Duo May Receive Group Calling and Low-Light Mode Features Very Soon

By January 1st, 2019 AT 1:26 PM

Google is working towards bringing group calling feature as well as a new low light mode on its popular video chat mobile app Duo. One of the most requested Duo features since launch has been group calling, something Apple’s FaceTime now supports for up to 32 users at once. It’s finally coming to Duo, although only for up to seven people, the Android Police reported late on Monday.

Users need to first create a group with the contacts they wish to video chat with on the platform and then they can start a call with all at the same time.

“Tapping on the group name in the bottom right corner of a call only brings you a list of group members,” the report added. The new low light mode essentially tweaks the users’ video so others can see them better during night-time conversations.

However, it is not known when either of the new features will be rolled out for the users. And you can’t simply download an update to get them — Google appears to be controlling test access on the server side. If you can wait, though, Duo could soon be more competitive with other video-focused calling apps, according to the Engadget.
