Google Duo has accidentally sent a video by Indian cricketer Virat Kohli to all its users across the globe.
In the video, Kohli is seen saying “thank you for the wishes and keep cheering for the team India on Duo”.
Realizing the mistake, Google, later on, apologized for erroneously sending the video in bulk.

Google was quick to respond to this situation and confirmed that the notification was not intended to go out to a wide audience. “This evening a video message was accidentally sent by Google to some Duo users. This was not an ad — it was a message that users in India were intended to receive as a thank you if they chose to participate in an upcoming Duo promotion. We are sorry for any confusion this may have caused.”+
