Google Duo integrates one of the most used Zoom features in its video calls

-

Google Duo will implement one of Zoom’s most popular features to its web video calls. You will only need Chrome and a lot of patience.

Google Duo will join the train of group video calls with a new feature that will arrive very soon. The technology announced that the web version of Duo will enable an option that allows more people to be integrated into a call to view them in mosaic mode. Currently, the mobile version supports up to 12 participants in group calls.

Duo for Web will also implement the links so that anyone with a Google account can be invited to the call. Although this sounds interesting, Google remains one step behind its competitors, who allow members to be added to video chats without the need for a user account.

Google also announced a new Family mode that integrates handwriting for you to scribble, as well as effects and masks to transform us into cats, astronauts and other strange beings. The filters are similar to what we see in other apps like Snapchat or Instagram and appear as a menu at the bottom of the call.

Finally, a special effect was enabled to commemorate Mother’s Day for 1-to-1 calls on iOS and Android. This filter will allow us to become a vase while we make a video chat with our mother.

The group video calls on the web will be available in the coming weeks as a preliminary, and effects Chrome version while the family mode for Mother ‘s Day and can be used in mobile versions of Google Duo.

Google Duo seeks to stay competitive in video calls

With these characteristics, the company seeks to position itself better in the field of video calls. The quarantine created new routines and applications such as Zoom and Skype became the only alternative to talk to our loved ones. Google has tried to narrow the gap with Zoom by integrating new options, although it still lags behind in popularity.

The technology company recently announced that it will unify the messaging and conversation equipment into a single division. Google hopes to end the mess in its chat services, where it once had up to seven applications to communicate. Since the disappearance of Talk, the division of Hangouts into two apps (Meet and Chat) and an Allo that happened without pain or glory, the company has not stopped confusing its users.

Despite this, Google does not plan to unify all its applications as Facebook intends. The company will seek to guide the development and progress of each service in a more consistent way, although it will take time to see the results.
