If you are a frequent user of Google Duo, Google video calling offering, then you’ve got a nice new feature being added to the mix.
Google announced today that it is adding support for video voicemail messages within Google Duo. With it, you can leave a video or voice message that’s up to 30 seconds long when someone doesn’t answer your video call. Google is also making it possible to re-record a message if you aren’t happy with the first one.
Once the recipient opens the Duo app, they will be able to view your message on their own time.
Someone who receives a video or voice message will be able to tap the “Call now” button to quickly activate a video call after they’ve viewed the message. Messages will disappear automatically after one day after they’ve been viewed, but you do have the option of saving ones that you like.
Google confirmed the update is rolling out for both Android and iOS users beginning today, and it should be available worldwide in the next few days.
