Google Duo rolls out new features to improve user experience

To make the video calling experience smoother, Google has made a slew of changes to the video calling service, Duo, and announced it is optimizing the users’ video calling experience as it plans to roll out a new video codec technology. According to Mashable, Google announced in a blog that this new advanced technology is aimed at improving the quality and reliability of video calls, even for low-bandwidth connections.

To enable users to quickly take a photo together to capture different moments on smartphones, tablets and Chromebooks, a new feature has been added. Users can then automatically share these photos with everyone in the conversation. Google also recently announced that it now allows 12 participants (instead of 8) for group calls for both iOS and Android users. The announcement about adding call support was made by Sanaz Ahari, Sr. Director of Product and Design at Google, on Twitter, where she stated that Duo is helping users see their loved ones around the world and that Google is aware of how group calls in particular are criticizing now.

Google added that Duo users have sent 180 percent more messages, with an increase of 800 percent in regions particularly affected by social distance. Users would also soon have the option to automatically save messages in Duo instead of expiring them after 24 hours. (ANI)
