Google Duo, a communication app by the internet search giant that has been downloaded more than a billion times from the Play Store, may soon receive a major feature. It appears that Google is testing the group calling feature for Duo. The company is testing this feature in an Android version of its app.


It’s not the first time that this feature has been talked about. Google Duo has been expected to receive a low light mode and group calling for quite some time now. Some screenshots of the feature have now surfaced online.

Google Duo group calling will only support up to seven people at once, it seems, which is a lot less than the 32 simultaneous users that FaceTime supports. Users have to create a group with the contacts that they want to video chat with so that they can start the call with all of them at the same time. In its present iteration, it doesn’t seem like the feature allows users to add other people during the call.

Since this feature is not yet official, it’s possible that some things might change as the development work progresses. Google hasn’t said at this point in time when it’s going to release the group calling feature for Duo.
