Duo has left us ready on the launch of some massive new options, together with group calling, however the newest replace to v49 does not look like launching both of these fairly but. Nevertheless, there are a few smaller touches to debate, together with particular results for the Hindu pageant of Holi and a few sort of latest video invitations.
The options mentioned under are in all probability not reside but, or might solely be stay for a small proportion of customers. Until said in any other case, do not anticipate to see these options when you set up the apk. All screenshots and pictures are actual until in any other case said, and pictures are solely altered to take away private info.
Celebrating Holi with particular results
The Indian vacation of Holi is arising on March twentieth and Duo is getting ready to hitch within the festivities with a set of themed chat results. Just like the Valentine’s Day impact that includes floating hearts, Holi shall be that includes results impressed by the Pageant of Colors, together with floating meals, colourful flowing liquid borders, sun shades, and colourful powders.

One ostensible distinction from the Valentine’s Day floating coronary heart impact is that it seems to be such as you’ll have the choice to select between totally different results for Holi, and probably even run multiple on the similar time.
I can solely guess when the consequences will go stay, however my hunch is that we’ll in all probability get a take a look at them a few day or so earlier than the pageant begins. Naturally, they are going to be restricted to telephones which are able to operating the consequences, which can virtually definitely depend on hardware acceleration. It is also potential the consequences shall be geographically restricted, however there are too many arguments for making it extensively obtainable, so I doubt this might be a problem.
A brand new line has turned up that raises the probability Duo will start supporting video invitations. The precise nature of what meaning is not completely clear, however this doubtless pertains to the function used to encourage new individuals to hitch Duo.

Whereas it is advantageous and dandy to attend for the individuals you already know to find Duo on their very own, most potential video chatters aren’t going to study it until you give them slightly push. Scroll under the contacts which are already reachable by way of Duo and you will find a second record with an ‘Invite’ hyperlink subsequent to their names. Faucet on this and you will go right into a chat field with a pre-written (however editable) message encouraging individuals to hitch. This message is shipped via a system referred to as App Preview Messaging that permits customers to obtain messages from apps that are not put in on their units.
If video invitations are to be a factor, you will in all probability have the ability to document your message and ship a hyperlink to the video via the identical system.
There are not any particulars or different assets to offer a lot background, so most of that is conjecture. It is also believable the invitations might be used for different functions, like sending a video message to someone to ask them to a future name.
