Google Duo v60 brings low light mode, pin to homescreen, and call history deletion

Google Duo recently celebrated its third birthday, but instead of chilling on the beach with margaritas and a big celebratory cake, the team is still hard at work adding new features. The latest version of Duo brings a few changes that didn't show up right away, but seem to have needed a server-side switch to be enabled. Chief amongst them is the new low light mode in video calls.

Knock Knock! Happy third birthday, Google Duo

Three years ago today, Google launched Duo, the video calling app and service it teased a few months earlier during I/O 2016. Along with Allo, Duo brought about a shift in Google's messaging and communication strategy. It spelled the beginning of the end for Hangouts and the switch to a more simplistic approach that didn't pan out well for Allo. Duo, on the other hand, is still advancing. It may not have completely revolutionized video calling, like Google had hoped, but that doesn't mean it isn't a success.

Google Duo gains call reminders and support for calling Home devices

In contrast to the sad state of Google's messaging apps (cough, Allo, cough, Hangouts, cough), Duo has become a quality alternative to other video-calling applications like Skype. The company shows no signs of leaving the service in the dust, either, as new features like web browser support and group calling have recently made it into the product. The latest functions to be added to Duo are the option to set call reminders and direct Google Home calling.

Google Duo increases group call capacity to eight people

About a month ago, Google Duo began rolling out its much-awaited group calls. They started out in Indonesia, then quickly spread to India, Brazil, Mexico, the US, Canada, and many more countries. Although it's not official yet, it seems to be rolled out worldwide, but could possibly be behind a server-side flag so some users may have it while others not. However, until recently, group calls were limited to four people max, so you could only add three other participants beside yourself. Now, that's expanding to eight.

[Update: Rolling out worldwide] Google Duo group video calls begin rolling out in a few countries

For over a year, we've known that Google Duo was working on implementing group video calls. Beside a sneak peek at the feature last December, there's been no real sign of it in the app. After the Facetime bug in January, Justin Uberti, Duo's lead, mentioned that the "importance of getting [group calls right] cannot be overstated," leading us to believe it would be a while for them to arrive in Duo.

On the scale of online data-hungry activities, video chatting is certainly high up. Not only are you receiving video, you're also sending it, which puts a toll on your connection and consumes your gee-bees. Google's Duo used to offer a setting to limit mobile data usage, but is now rolling a new Data saving mode that works on both mobile and WiFi connections.

Google Duo gets new contact screen, audio messages, and more in server-side update

Usually, Google bundles up new features in big app updates that you can sideload, but it's increasingly common for new features to just show up after a server-side switch gets flipped. That's the case today with Duo. The way you select contacts is different, and you can do different things with them.
