Voicemail-like video messages are coming to Duo

Voicemail-like video messages are coming to Duo

Google is updating Duo this week to add in video messaging and instantly make the app more fun and useful. Additionally, if you do save your video messages for later, they'll back up to your Google Drive account, as well as to your phone. Select it and a countdown will initiate before the app records a selfie video of you. The message remains available for 24 hours if you don't choose to download it. After that, it'll be erased.

Duo now allows users to leave each other video messages, a feature Google thinks will be ideal for when you want to share a moment but the other person doesn't pick up.

The company describes the new feature in more detail below.

Once you've recorded your message, you can then send it to your contact, who will see it within the Duo app.

The video messages can be 30 seconds in length and they disappear automatically after a day. You can grab the newest version, complete with video messages, from APK Mirror.

Unlike Google's Allo, which has struggled to find a objective in the crowded text-based messaging marketplace, Duo's video-focused goal has helped it find an audience on both iOS and Android.
