- Google has unveiled an eight-way video chat feature in Google Duo
- The Big G has been trailing both Microsoft and Apple in group-calling for a while

Google has been testing Google Duo's group-calling feature for a while now, but today is the day the tech giant has decided to roll it out worldwide.
As its name might suggest, Google Duo is the Big G's version of Skype. The new feature now lets you video call up to eight people at one time.
This comes hot on the heels of Microsoft's rollout of epic 50-person Skype group calls in April. Apple's Facetime has had group call support for up to 32-people sicne last October.
The new service is available across iOS and Android operating systems.
The update also brought with it two new features, a data saving mode and the ability to personalize video messages.
