Google Duo gets a new 30-second Video message update

Google on Monday introduced a new video messaging feature for its mobile app Google Duo that would let users capture and share video messages when their friends can not answer their call.

The company informs that the shared video messages will automatically disappear within a day after it's seen. After watching the video message, the receiver may tap the "Call now" button to instantly call the sender.

The first three Tomb Raider games are being remastered for Steam
For 2018, though, the resulting remastering work will also benefit the Steam versions. Thankfully, more modern remasters are on the way that will run at 1080p with 60fps.

According to a report by Android Police, Google has added an option in the Google Contacts app that would allow its users to send money via Google Pay. Google says that like all calls made on Duo, video messages are also secure and end-to-end encrypted. " After a countdown that lasts for 3 seconds, record your message, and then tap to stop once you are done". Once you open a contact in the Contacts app, you will see a '$' sign amongst other options that will let you send money to that contact. Google Pay Request doesn't seem to be present here, despite the fact that there was a "Request" string in our teardown. Check your respective app store to grab the latest version so as to start video messaging through Duo.

It is quite possible that Google is testing out the new feature via server-side switches and the feature in itself is not fully functional. That's because calls in Google Duo might not always be planned. To reflect this change in name, the toggle to switch modes on the video calling app's main screen has now been updated to reflect the change. All said and done this is a nifty little feature for Google Pay users.
