With video messages on Google Duo, users can now capture and share important moments, even when the receiver can't take the call.
Video messages will automatically disappear within a day after it's seen. And after you've watched their video message, you can tap the "Call now" button to easily call that person right back.
Google says that messages in Duo will be end-to-end encrypted and short-living. There's now no option for requesting funds from a contact, but it's a nice integration nonetheless. Also, users can save their favorite videos locally to their phone. However, you can start recording your message after a call rings for 60 seconds without any answer from the other end.
To play a video message received from another user, users need to simply tap their icon. All downloaded messages will be saved to your device.
