Google Duo updates with a brand-new family mode that adds a good number of masks and filters. This new feature transforms you into different characters like astronauts, cats, and more. Additionally, the Mute and Hang-up buttons have been hidden to prevent any accidental clicks.
As per Google, “Our new family mode lets you doodle on video calls for everyone to see and also surprise them with fun effects and masks that transform you into astronauts, cats and more. Just start a video call, tap the menu icon and then tap Family to get started. You don’t have to worry about accidental mutes or hang-ups because we’ve hidden those buttons while you’re playing together. This new family mode is available when signed into Duo with your Google account. As always, calls on Duo are end-to-end encrypted and stay private between you and your loved ones.”
In the coming weeks, the group calls will be introduced to Duo on the Web, first in Chrome. Also, Duo on Web will support the new layout to see more people at the same time. You would be able to invite anyone with Google Account with a link as released in the company’s blog post.
