Image Google

Google Duo is the search giant's app for video and voice calls, and today it has launched a feature to let you leave contacts messages when they don't answer. Select it and a countdown will initiate before the app records a selfie video of you. If the contact which the user is trying to contact misses the call or declines it, a "Leave video message" tab will pop up. Video messages begin rolling out on Android and iOS today, and will be live worldwide over the next several days. The messages can be 30 seconds in length, and they'll also automatically disappear after a day, although recipients can download the videos to their camera rolls for posterity.
