Reports of Duo’s loss of life have been vastly exaggerated. The app has continued to obtain new options and enhancements over the previous 12 months, and seemingly now not requires a telephone quantity. Now there is a new characteristic you can check out: drawing notes.

“We’re introducing this feature as we got feedback from users that they’re looking for a more visual way to connect with their friends when one of them may be unavailable to get on a video call,” Google stated. “They’d like to send a brief one-off note within Duo, whether that be ‘hey, let’s talk today!’, or ‘sending one last good night!’.”

The new characteristic mirrors the annotation options in Google Keep, with a number of pen stroke sorts, eight background colours, and six fonts. Just like calls, the notes are end-to-end encrypted.

Notes are rolling out beginning at present, and they need to seem for everybody by the top of the week.
