Google adds group support to the Duo app
Google has provided its video chat app Duo with the option of video calling with up to eight people at a time. Group conversation is available for the Android and iOS app, the company has announced on its blog.
Duo was released by Google in 2016 as a competitive video calling app. All calls made via the app are highly encrypted, which means that Google cannot retrieve the content. So they say.
The service is the replacement for the Hangouts previously used by Google. The consumer version of that app will stop in October 2019. With two new Hangout apps, Google now wants to focus on the business market.
