Google has revealed that it is rolling out a new feature to its popular video-calling application, Google Duo. The company has rolled Notes and Doodle feature to its video-calling app. 


With this, users can send doodle messages and note to their contacts. Users can simply type a message, similar to what we have seen in Instagram Stories, and send it to other people. One can use different pen styles, nine different colours of ink, eight background colours and six fonts. One can also scribble and create doodles and send it to contacts. The messages will disappear after 24 hours.
