Google Duo previously had a limit of up to eight people only until now but has just raised it to 12 people. As you know due to Corona virus outbreak several cities have been put in lockdown mode, so video calling and video conferencing applications are really taking off now like never before.
We are grateful that Duo is helping users see their loved ones all around the world. We recognize group calling is particularly critical right now. We have increased group calling from 8 participants to 12 effective today. More to come. #AllInThisTogether #COVID19
