But, this feature is now being rolled out and there are fewer chances that you might find it in your Google Contacts app. The feature will allow users to share important moments, even when friends and family can't take the call.

Google's Duo video chat app has started receiving "video messages" feature.

I thought we had improved but not as much as we needed to", the Australian told a news conference. Where do you think it all went wrong for England? "They'll be gunning for us".

Google will allow users to record a 30-second "video message", when they are unable to accept a call, or if the call gets declined. And after you've watched their video message, you can tap the "Call now" button to easily call that person right back. The feature is live starting today. However, the receiver has the option of saving favourites locally to his/her phone.

Like other features of the Google Duo app, the "video messages" feature is also secured by end-to-end encryption. A report from Android Police indicated that a certain user came across the "Send" option on their Google Contacts app. Like we said the "request money" option is to be added and Google is probably testing these features by the server-side switches. Also, note that this is a server-side update, but do make sure to have the latest version of the Google Contacts from the Play Store to use this new feature. Video messages begin rolling out on Android and iOS today, and will be live worldwide over the next several days.
