Google has updated a some of its apps and services today, including Duo, Allo, and Photos.

Duo users on Android and iOS will be able to make voice-only calls when they wish. Google says Duo’s voice calls work well on most connection speeds and won’t consume much data. Audio calls via Duo are being made available in Brazil now, with other regions to follow in the next few days.

Google updated its Allo messaging app with support for attachments in group chats. Users will be able to share several file types (.pdf, .docs, .apk, .zip, and mp3) with groups through the messaging app.

Google says Photos is now better at backing up photos. Photos will first send low-resolution backups to Photos when the network connection is slow or spotty. Photos will then replace the low-resolution shots with high-quality images once good connectivity is available. Moreover, people will be able to share the low-resolution previews with others immediately.

These new features are rolling out to Duo, Allo, and Photos over the next few days.
