  • Google adds a video voicemail feature to its Duo messaging app

Video messages automatically disappear within a day after you first watch them, but you can always save your favorites locally to your phone.

Google is rolling out video messages for Duo on both Android and iOS starting today and the feature will be available to users across the globe over the next few days.

Once you've recorded your message, you can then send it to your contact, who will see it within the Duo app. If the contact which the user is trying to contact misses the call or declines it, a "Leave video message" tab will pop up. It will also be possible leave a plain and simple voice message as well. Such that, a caller can now send voicemail kinda video messages if their video calls are left unattended or unreachable at the receivers end. They can play it by tapping the sender's icon, and they can choose to call them back with a handy "Call now" button that appears after a video message.
