Google Duo soon to get group calling and Low Light Mode

Google is planning on bringing the group calling feature and low light mode on its popular Google Duo platform. The group calling feature has been the most requested feature on the video platform. This is a feature that is already there on other platforms like Facebook Messenger, Apple's FaceTime and WhatsApp.

According to a report by Android police on Monday, the feature is coming soon but will only for up to seven people. The Google Duo has recently crossed the 1 billion download mark on Google Play and is one of the most popular video application among the Android smartphones.

Android Police has reported that users first need to create a group with the contacts they wish to have video chats with, followed with which they can start a call all the members on the group all at the same time.

The report added, "Tapping on the group name in the bottom right corner of a call only brings you a list of group members".

The new low light mode essentially tweaks the user's video so that others can see them more clearly, during night time conversations.

According to Engadget, one can't really download the update, as Google appears to be controlling some tests from the server side. If one can wait, the Duo app will soon become more competitive with other video-focused calling apps.

The Google Duo app was originally launched in 2016 along with Allo, which Google has shut down.
