Google Increases Duo Group Calling Limit From 8 To 12

Google has increased the maximum number of people who can take part in a Duo call from eight to twelve, the company’s senior director of product management Sanaz Ahari Lemelson, made this known to the public on Twitter.

Sanaz Ahari Lemelson wrote that:

“We recognize group calling is particularly critical right now,We have therefore increased group calling from 8 participants to 12 effective today.”

However he failed to mention if the increase was permanent. Duo had only supported eight person video calls since May of last year when Google had doubled the maximum number of participants from four to eight.

Incase you are in need to chat with a larger number of people and you definitely need to use a Google service to do so, then you’ll need to use Google’s enterprise-focused Hangouts Meet service. Although this new development is exclusive to G Suite business users, Google also recently increased the maximum number of participants to 250 for G Suite and G Suite for Education subscribers. Previously, Google charged $13 extra per user for this increased limit as part of its “enterprise” tier.
