UPDATE (May 11th, 2020):

Google has confirmed its plans to expand Duo group video calling capability to support up to 32 people. The confirmation was given to Android Police where it revealed that the additional support was under development. The support will be made available across all major platforms i.e. Android, iOS, and on the web. An exact release date has not been shared yet.


Original (March 27th, 2020)

In the current times of the COVID-19 epidemic and social distancing, video calls have become the best way of interacting with loved ones staying away from you. Google Duo is one such video calling app that is used widely by Android and iOS users globally and now, it has become even better if you tend to group video call quite often.

Sanaz Ahari, Senior Director of Product & Design at Google, has tweeted that Google Duo group video calling now supports up to 12 people at the same time. The app originally received support for group video calls last year but it could support only up to eight people. The announcement about extending the feature to accommodate four more people is definitely a good one.

It is reported that the newly increased participant count will be made available through a server-side change. It means if you are a Google Duo user, you do not have to wait for an app update to arrive on the app store. It will become available for you on its own as and when Google will flip the switch on the servers.

The only thing that you can do is to ensure that you are running the latest Google Duo version. It can be done by visiting the Google Play Store on Android and App Store on Apple devices and visiting the app updates section. If there is a pending update that you should install, you will be able to see it there.
