Google has rolled out the group video calling feature in Google Duo for Indonesian users along with a few other select regions today. We had come to know that this feature is in the works back in January where Google was planning to include a feature where up to 7 people can join the group video call on this video calling App.
The inclusion of group video call feature follows in the footsteps of Apps like WhatsApp, Skype, FaceTime. Each of these Apps have their own specific video call specificatons and features aimed at giving the users more freedom and flexibilty to add more friends and family members in the chat. Apart from video calling, Duo also has supports audio calling and you can also send 30-second long video messages.
Google announced about this new feature on their Indonesian Twitter handle, which said:
Di bulan Ramadan nanti mau video call lancar rame – rame sama teman dan keluarga?
🚨🚨 Good news!! #GoogleDUO sekarang bisa group call sampai dengan 4 orang loh. Yuk, cobain langsung Google DUO di Android kamu!
As reported by themobileindian, Indonesian users can access this feature in Google Duo as follows:
In order to make a group video call, users needs to open the application and just beneath the search bar, users will find the ‘Create Group’ button. One then need to tap on the button and add the people with whom they want to hold the group call. One can also save the group for quick access later as well. However, the company has limited the grouping calling to four people right now, though it might increase this number in the coming days.
