Google Testing Payments Feature on its Android Contacts App

Google Contacts can send money via Google Pay Send

The video messaging functionality allows users to leave a 30-second video (or voice) message if the person they're calling declines or misses the incoming call. Check your respective app store to grab the latest version so as to start video messaging through Duo.

According to a report by Android Police, Google has added an option in the Google Contacts app that would allow its users to send money via Google Pay. However, the receiver has the option of saving favourites locally to his/her phone.

Here is how video voicemail works in Duo: open the app [Duo], tap a name of a contact you want to call, while the call is ringing, tap "Leave a Video Message" or "Leave a Voice Message". There's now no option for requesting funds from a contact, but it's a nice integration nonetheless. We noticed some strings in our teardown of the Google Contacts app last week that suggested the same addition would be coming soon, and it's now hit at least one reader in Canada. The UI on this icon seems to be similar to the one which users had seen on the Android Messages app. That's because calls in Google Duo might not always be planned.

The main lens is downgraded from 16 to 13 megapixels, with a secondary 2MP sensor contributing to (middling) portrait photography. The Honor 7C is now available for order in China and it will be available for sale China starting from tomorrow i.e March 13.

Having said that, just because this feature is being tested by Google doesn't mean it will indeed be rolled out to all the users in the future. The app also lets users make audio-only calls.

Well, this feature has been spotted in Canada, but chances are it must have been rolled out to users in the USA as well as in other countries where Google Pay is available.
