Google has been bringing some updates for its apps and services on a regular basis lately. Now it is being reported that Google might be rolling out a new update for its video chat app Duo. Once the update is official a user will be able to record and send a 30 sec video message if and when the recipient is not picking up the call or declines the call for some odd reason.
Further, Google also adds video voicemail feature to its Duo app. The video voicemail feature is quite simple in terms of its functionality. If the contact which the user is trying to contact misses the call or declines it, a "Leave video message" tab will pop up. A user can simply tap on the "leave a video message" tab to record a message and send it to the contact. One interesting thing about this feature is that all the messages are end-to-end encrypted which means that the messages and the conversation are secure. Also, the messages will disappear after 24-hours making the conversation more secure.
As we mentioned earlier Google has been regularly updating its services and apps on a constant basis. Recently Google's UPI-based payments app Tez got a new chat feature in its latest update. Google has added a dedicated chat button to the app which is placed right next to 'Pay and Request" button.Further, the app will also allow users to disable the chat feature and also block some a specific contact. The chat feature for the Tez app is in its initial phase and is not yet available for all the users. You can read the complete story here.
Like the chat feature for the Text app, Google had also recently rolled out March security updates for its Pixel and Nexus devices. Google has released both system image and OTA (Over the Air) update file for the Pixel and Nexus devices and the update is available on Google's developer page. Read the complete story here.
