Google Meet and Duo Hosted Over One Trillion Minutes of Video Calls in 2020


In the last eleven months, both the Google services saw numerous changes and upgrades to enable users to converse virtually amid the COVID-19 pandemic.


Notably, Google this year also integrated Meet on Gmail to reach out to more users and rival Zoom and Microsoft Teams.


Google shared the development in a blog post where it also provides a recap of all the updates rolled out for Meet and Duo this year.


"We launched new features like 49-tile layout, noise cancellation, background blur, and low-light mode plus live captions in five languages to help everyone follow along on the call," the post read.


The video conferencing platform had introduced Breakout Rooms where meetings can be split into small groups for parallel discussions and a hand raising tool for managing participants for its workspace and education customers.


Google Duo and Meet rivals, Zoom and Microsoft Teams have also added a host of features to ease living amid the pandemic.
