  • Google might soon let Android users send money from Google Contacts app

Starting today, Duo users can send a video message to their friend or family member, who will receive it in the Duo app. When you have a video call not attended or declined, Duo will now leave you with a new option of sending a video message. To play a video message received from another user, simply tap their icon. After watching the video message, the receiver may tap the "Call now" button to instantly call the sender.

Having said that, just because this feature is being tested by Google doesn't mean it will indeed be rolled out to all the users in the future. By adding a video voicemail support, you will now be able to send your message across to those contacts that are usually too busy to pick your video calls.

Last December, we brought you a report that Google Duo will start alerting you during video calls when your battery hits a low percentage. However, the receiver has the option of saving favourites locally to his/her phone. Now, it appears that Goole might be testing similar feature for the Google Contacts app in Canada. Once you open a contact in the Contacts app, you will see a '$' sign amongst other options that will let you send money to that contact.

WhatsApp has again changed its 'message deletion' feature
The Delete For Everyone option is now available to users for 1 hour, 8 minutes and 16 seconds after a message has been sent. Those using modded or unauthorized versions of the app have tricked this notification system to delete old messages.

This is all part of Google's plan to improve the general video conferencing experience.

Google also replaced or perhaps, I should just say renamed Audio mode feature to Voice mode. The company past year launched Google Tez mobile payments app in India, and last month, just ahead of MWC, it started replacing Android Pay with Google Pay.
