Highlights
  • Google Duo now supports up to 32 people in a group video call
  • This is available on Chrome version 83.0.4103.106
  • Group video call on Duo is available on Chrome only

Google Duo's Web client has received a bump in the total number of participants allowed in a group video call. It now allows 32 people to take part in a group video call, as per the announcement by a company official on Twitter. This development comes a little over a month after Google announced it will be bringing group call support to the Web version, along with a Family mode. This update is starting to roll out on the latest version of Chrome.

The tweet shared by Senior Director of Product and Design, Sanaz Ahari Lemelson, states that Google Duo's web version is now getting support for up to 32 participants in a single video call. It adds that the update is starting to roll with the latest version of Chrome Web browser. The screenshot shared by Lemelson shows 19 people on one screen in a group video call.

Gadgets 360 was able to verify this feature on Chrome version 83.0.4103.106.

To start a group video call on the web version of Duo, head to duo.google.com. You will see your contacts here as well as a Create Group button on the left. Once you click on this button, you will see a shareable link, as well as an Add People option. Click on Add People to search and add up to 31 contacts and create a group to start a group video call. Notably, group video calling on the web version of Duo is limited to Chrome.

To recall, early in May, Google announced that it will be bringing group video calling to the Web version of Duo, along with a new Family mode and now, the limit for number of participants for a group call has increased to 32. This comes at a time when people are dependent on communicating with each other over video calls. Google's video calling services Duo and Meet, are in competition with Zoom, Skype, and others that admittedly support a higher participant limit.
