Google may be divesting itself of Allo, but their video chat app Duo which it launched alongside is moving ahead with new features including a new video message feature.

Google Duo has been letting you send the equivalent of a video voice mail to someone who doesn’t pick up since March, but starting this week you can simply record a video from the home screen, then send it around to multiple recipients in your contact list.

Announced in a Tweet this morning, the setup appears pretty simple

The update hasn’t begun rolling out as yet, as the Tweet says it should be some time this week, but it looks like the perfect tool to send a video message around on Christmas morning.

    I wonder if this works with the new smart displays. I guess it must.
