Director of Product and Design at Google says that the feature will be in effect from today itself. And Google Duo, the popular video calling app has now further added support for 12 person group calling for its users.

The outbreak of COVID-19, which emerged in Wuhan, China and spread all over the world, forced people to stay at home. "We recognize group calling is particularly critical right now", Sanaz Ahari Lemelson wrote. With this change, now users of Google Duo will be able to video chat with 12 people at a time. Once you open the app, you can then swipe up to show your contacts.

Application call video the Google Duo since may of past year, up to a maximum of eight people has quoted from the previous four people, from The pages of threshold. The application until recently allowed video calls of up to 8 people, and in the last hours, they have increased the limit to 12.

However, the Web version of Google Duo has still not started to support this feature, so for now, it can only be done through the official app.

Brendan Murphy, the Australian CMO, said: "We have to change the way we, as people, interact with each other". Morrison said the new advice to older Australians "does not mean they can not go outside".

The previous limit was 8, so that's a nice 50% increase.

9to5Google confirmed that the changes are live in Duo as we speak and do not require any sort of update to access. All people having this app will automatically get this function.

Houseparty is more like a casual take on video chatting and aims to make these conversations fun by adding trivia games to the app like Heads up, Chips and Guac, and quick draw.
