    Google Duo prepares to implement group calls in the desktop version


    The crisis of the pandemic that caused the coronavirus, has made Google Duo meet the communication needs of people who are in confinement.

    In the midst of the health emergency that the planet is going through, due to the pandemic caused by the coronavirus, communication systems have had to be adapted to the needs of users. It seems that the typical video calls with a screen divided into four were left behind. Multiple conferences are no longer just a matter of entrepreneurs. Families, friends, and simple entertainment is already part of this global phenomenon. So Google has to get into everything if it intends to continue competing.

    Consequently, Google Duo has had to adapt to the times that the planet is going through. They recently increased the number of participants on their interface from eight to 12. This number seems to have lagged behind compared to apps like Zoom . The aforementioned program has become popular, despite the security criticism it has received.

    So for the next few weeks, Google Duo will allow new features to include more people on video calls. But to access this service it must be through the web. The GS Marena portal reported that in addition to being able to establish multiple communication from your PC, you can also send links to those you want to participate in the videoconference.

    Other new features of the Google Duo

    In addition to announcing this novelty, Google added new features for its mobile version. The options are already available for Android and iOS . The new function is an adaptation called “Family Mode”. In it you can interact beyond a simple conversation. In it you will have access to drawings with which the little ones will have fun.

    In addition to the drawings on the screen, with a selected range of colors, filters and masks were also released to the faces that appear on the screen. His great spearhead was an effect of the International Mother’s Day, last Sunday.

    In order to implement all these features, they had to hide the options to mute and end the call. The purpose is to let the accident-free fun unfold in between.
