Next Hub Max Group Call

Next Hub Max gets Group Video Calls and Meetings

group video calls and meetings

Users in the U.S. will now be able to start and join group video calls and meetings on both Duo and Google Meet using their Nest Hub Max.

While you could use Nest Hub Max for video calls it was more for one-on-one sessions. But now when we need to have more people on a video call, you will finally be able to make them on your smart display that has Google Assistant support.

To be able to start your group calls, you first need to create a group in your Duo mobile app, in case you don’t have that group yet. Afterwards, just say “Hey Google, make a group call” and then choose which group in your app you want to do the call with.

Nest Hub Max also has auto-framing so even while you’re on your video call, you can move around in the room, while staying in view, and you’ll still be in frame.

Duo group calling is not just available in the Nest Hub Max. You can also do it on the LG XBOOM AI ThinQ WK9 Smart Display, JBL Link View and Lenovo’s 8 inch and 10 inch Smart Displays.

You can also now use your smart display to start or join a meeting in your Google Meet. Just say “Hey Google, start a meeting” and you can let up to 100 people join your webinar, exercise class, online class, etc.

You can say “Hey Google, join a meeting” and then enter the meeting code in the box so you can be part of your office group session. You can say “Hey Google, join my next meeting” if your next meeting is set on your personal Google Calendar.
