Google Duo group calling feature revealed, see how it looks!

According to the screenshots, Duo's group calling feature allows for seven people at once. While this obviously allows you to call Google Home devices paired to your Duo account from the Duo app it's unclear if you can select a single device or if it will ring all of your paired devices.

Two major new versions are on their way to Google Duo, both of which were previously leaked in the chat app throughout 2018.

What's more, according to the folks at Android Police, it looks some some new useful features are being tested and may be coming soon to the app, such as a low-light mode as well as group calling.

JaVale McGee and Rajon Rondo are both expected to miss tonight's game as well, giving the Clippers even more of an advantage. Clippers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. "You could see we just didn't have it offensively and give the Lakers some credit".

One of the most requested Duo features since launch has been group calling, something Apple's FaceTime now supports for up to 32 users at once. In this particular test build, users need to create a specific group and add everyone they want to talk to before they actually start the call.

It doesn't appear as though you can add anyone into a group during a call, at least not yet. The firm will also be working on a low light mode, presumably using lessons learned from its low light camera software. Presently once a call has started new members cannot be added to the group, which is a shame, especially if the flow of a call makes adding a new participant desirable. You can create multiple groups and they will appear in your contacts list right at the top for easy access. If you're in a room that's dark, a pop-up in Duo will ask if you want to enable low light, which "automatically adjusts your video" so others can see you better.

However, it is not known when either of the new features will be rolled out for the users.
