Google Duo certainly draws the line before the common video calling apps, despite boasting nearly the same functionalities. Once you're happy with your message, you can send it to your friend or family member, who will receive it in the Duo app.

Leading communication app Truecaller on Tuesday announced it has integrated with video calling app Google Duo that will allow users to make video calls directly through Truecaller on Android and iOS platforms. 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 feature is live starting today. To play a video message you've received from someone, simply tap their icon. Also, users can save their favorite videos locally to their phone.

Like other features of the Google Duo app, the "video messages" feature is also secured by end-to-end encryption.

Both running backs are on the wrong side of 30, and likely looking to Detroit as their last chance at winning a starting role. The Lions did post the worst rushing total in the National Football League last season, recording a total 1,221 yards.


Google's video chats mobile app was announced at the company's developer conference in May 2016 and began its worldwide release in August of the same year. That's why they are now introducing a new feature to help users not miss out on calls in a way. Like we said the "request money" option is to be added and Google is probably testing these features by the server-side switches.

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