Viber becomes the latest platform for launch a Group Video Calls feature, enabling large meetings and online classes.
“To accommodate the growing need of video calls for both personal and professional communication” during the COVID-19 pandemic Viber has announced that it will soon roll out a new Group Video Calls feature. The new feature will enable group video calls of up to 20 people with unlimited duration.
The app already has a lot of success with Group Audio Calls (up to 20 people), and group chats (up to 250 people) so in light of the current situation, Viber has also started to add video to its capabilities.
As social distancing becomes the norm, more and more people need to find new ways to meet face-to-face, and interact. “Whether chefs running cooking classes or yoga instructors training their pupils to master breath cycles, all working groups need a platform on which to meet” explains the announcement.
How To Start A Group Video Call on Viber
- Tap the new “video” button at the top of the screen.
- To add more participants to a call, simply or start a video call and add more participants to it.
Group Video Calls show the speaker to all participants but users can also choose to pin any video to their screen during the call – their own or other participant’s video. Users can also mute themselves, or disable video during the call, as well as see if other participants are on mute or their video is turned off.
