Video call applications are increasingly being used when #JagaJarakDulu was used to prevent the spread of the corona virus. What’s more if the application can accommodate many people in it.
Maybe Google is aware of the need. Therefore the internet search giant increased the number of participants in its video call application, Google Duo.
“We are grateful that Duo helps its users see their loved ones all over the world. We realize group calls are very important now. We have increased group calls from 8 to 12 effective participants today,” said Sanaz Ahari Lemelson, Senior Director of Product and Google design on his Twitter account.
This is the second time that Google has increased the number of participants in group video calls on the Duo. When released, this application can only support four people, every month the number is doubled, aka 8 people.
With a total of 12 people making group video calls through Google Duo is even more exciting. But indeed when compared to other platforms far adrift.
FaceTime for example, Apple’s video call calling service supports up to 32 people. Skype can be up to 50 people, and Zoom which is widely used now supports up to 100 people for free services.
But maybe Google did not design the Duo to do video conferencing. Because if you want more participants they have Google Hangout services that support up to 250 participants.
