Google Duo now lets users join video call via the link

Users will only have to add on just one individual to the group call to access the link. The latest update is presently available to existing users on Google Duo’s mobile application. 


Google Duo has released a brand new feature for its mobile application users. This latest feature will enable the video call organizer to invite the other participants by only sending them a link. The host will initially only have to add just one single participant to the group call to gain access to the link.


A report by Android Authority states that Google has begun wheeling out this brand new element to its mobile app users. The app with a version 89 and 91 has been receiving a server-side upgrade which would enable users to obtain access to this feature even without having to upgrade the app to the latest version. The app with any of the two versions will be upgraded automatically. The report asserts that this fresh update is presently available to users existing on Google Duo mobile app.


In order to use this fresh feature, the users will initially need to add a minimum of one person to the app. On including one person, the users will be able to perceive the link in the middle of the screen. Users can then move forward to click on the copy symbol. The users will then be able to forward the link to whichever user even on various other social media platforms too. 


The receiver of the link will only have to click on the link provided to access the video call. Once the users click on the link, they will be redirected to Google Duo app. Despite that, users won’t be directly redirected to the call but will be asked to turn on or off the camera and mic before joining the video call.


The app will also allow host to invite other users in between the call. In order to permit a new user to join a group video call, the existing users in the call will have to click on the three dots that will show up on the bottom right corner of the screen and later tap on the share link control.
