Google Testing Payments Feature on its Android Contacts App

Google Pay now allow users to send money via Google Contacts

Google's Duo video chat app has started receiving "video messages" feature. The video chat mobile app Google Duo now allows users to capture and share important moments with video messages when their friends can not answer their call. When you have a video call not attended or declined, Duo will now leave you with a new option of sending a video message. The UI on this icon seems to be similar to the one which users had seen on the Android Messages app. 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.

The company informs that the shared video messages will automatically disappear within a day after it's seen.

Announced at I/O conference in 2016, Google Duo is a video-calling app from Google for both iOS and Android users. Google has itself designed the app keeping in mind these random and unplanned calls. The rollout of this feature has begun from today, with all devices holding the app set to receive this capability soon. 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.

Meanwhile, the new feature has been launched on Android and iOS and will be live worldwide in the near future.
