Duo, the Google version of Apple's FaceTime, is receiving video messages today in an update. The feature allows users to leave voicemail style selfies videos for any user who omits or rejects a call on Duo. The messages can last 30 seconds, and will also disappear automatically after a day, although recipients can download the videos to their camera rolls for posterity.
Unlike Google's Allo, who has struggled to find a target in the busy text message market, Duo's focus on video has helped him find audiences on both iOS and Android. The application is the seventeenth most popular social networking application in the Apple app store, while Allo is located in the n. ° 93, while Duo on Android has already passed the limit of 100 million downloads. (Because Play Store only uses ranges, it is possible that Duo has been downloaded on Android hundreds of millions of times, up to 500 million).
Google says that video messages will begin to be deployed today for iOS and Android Duo users, and this feature will be widely available globally later this week.
