Back in March, Google increased the maximum limit of participants in a group call to 12.
Earlier this month, a report by Android Police revealed that Google is adding a feature that will allow its users to end invite links on mobile. As per the report, the feature will allow the video call host to send an invite to other members by just sending them a link. In order to access the link the user just has to add one person to the group call.
Apart from this, the video calling tool will also allow users to invite a person during the call. In order to allow a person to join the video call midway, users within the call can click on the three dots placed on the bottom right corner of the screen and then tap on the share link button.
