Google Pay now allow users to send money via Google Contacts

13 March 2018

A recent apk teardown had also indicated new incoming features for the Google Contacts app, and this seems to have arrived, at least for a user in Canada.

"Starting today, Duo users can send a video message to their friend or family member, who will receive it in the Duo app".

However, the company has added an option wherein the user can save their favourite video messages on smartphone.

Google will allow users to record a 30-second "video message", when they are unable to accept a call, or if the call gets declined.

Video messages will automatically disappear within a day after it's seen.

To send money directly from Google contacts, open the recipient's contact and you will see the new Send option with a dollar symbol.

Like other features of the Google Duo app, the "video messages" feature is also secured by end-to-end encryption. Google Pay Request doesn't seem to be present here, despite the fact that there was a "Request" string in our teardown. The UI itself is basically the same as the one found in Android Messages, though you can choose which contact method (SMS, email, etc.).

Meanwhile, the new feature has been launched on Android and iOS and will be live worldwide in the near future. Duo is based on phone numbers, allowing users to call someone from their contact list.
