Google has rolled out an update for its Duo service today which brings the video messages feature. The feature will let users leave selfie-video messages in voicemail style for any user that declines or misses a video call on Duo. It will also be possible leave a plain and simple voice message as well.

Google says that this feature will let users capture and share their important moments even when their friends and family members can’t take their call. And much like all calls made using Duo, the video messages are kept secure with end-to-end encryption.


The video messages can be 30 seconds in length and they disappear automatically after a day. However, the recipient will have the option to download the video messages if they want to hold on to them for however long they desire.

Users who receive a video message from someone only need to tap their icon to play it. They can also tap the “Call now” button after they have watched the video to easily call them back right away.

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.
