Google Duo group video calling goes live in the United States
Google Duo, the video chat mobile app developed by the Mountain View company, received a couple of important updates in the last year or so. Among them, group video calling was added to the app less than a month ago, but it was only made available in a few countries.

Starting today, Google has expanded the availability of the group video calling feature to more countries, including the United States, Canada, and India, AndroidPolice reports. Even Google seems to confirm the new feature is available in “select regions,” but no list of markets is available yet, so we'll have to rely on reports coming from users.

With group video calling, Google Duo users will be able to select up to four contacts that they can call simultaneously. Simply swipe down and press the “Create Group” option in order to start adding the contacts you want to call.

Although the feature only supports four contacts in a group call, Google plans to slowly increase the number of people that you can call simultaneously with Google Duo, although no timeframe is available at the moment.
