Google Duo has finally got a new feature to include images — Version 56 — which is now partially live and allows users to send Snapchat-like single photos to their contacts.

“Released on Thursday, version 56 of Google Duo adds the application to Android’s system share sheet, including in Google Photos and Files. This allows users to message any saved photo on their device via Duo.

“Once in the app, you have access to the same tools as when sending a video message. This includes drawing and adding text with multiple colours and sizes available.
