If you are a Google Duo user, then a recent advertisement (video message) in which Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli is seen thanking you for all good wishes for the Indian cricket team that is now in England to take part in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 could be a glitch. This was apparently meant for only users in India, not other countries. If you are vexed by this new advertisement, do not fret over Google.
It does not end here, there is a hilarious aspect as well as Google Duo users in India – who were seemingly the intended target, did not reportedly receive Virat Kohli’s message on Duo, as per an Android Police report. Android Police has also listed the message in question that features Virat Kohli in frame.
Also, Android users took to Redditt to report the glitch and these users include the likes of that in the United States (US), Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. But users in India have not received Virat Kohli’s message on Duo for now. It is interesting to note that India is one of the major cricket countries in the world having been world cup winners in the past.
Hence, do let us know in case you have received this ad – mistakenly from Google:

At this point in time, Google has also seemingly acknowledged the issue and has stated that the message was for Duo users in India and specifically intended at those users choosing to take part in a forthcoming promotional activity. However, with users in India not having received Virat Kohli’s thank you wishes, there could be some broken hearts as the man is extremely popular in the country. Even Twitterati were not behind in catching the error, check out below some tweets in this regard:
