Allo is now available on Android and iOS with tons of features
September 22, 2016
Launched shortly after the release of Duo, Google’s Allo is now available worldwide. The innovative Allo is infused with assistant and is all prepared to delight both the iOS and Android users across the globe. The app is packed with some great features and is sure to amaze smartphone users with diverse messaging needs.
An Array of Exciting Features
In addition to stickers from indie artists, Allo allows messages to be sent in small or large text depending on their own choice. All you need to do is to slide up and down on the send button to set the size. Using a drawing tool that is in-built you can doodle on images before sending them as well.
The app also has the option to suggest reply that is best suited to a context, Smart Reply. They show right under the last received message. You can also include emoji in it. The more you use the app, the replies will get better by means of machine learning and copy how you generally communicate.
The Google Assistant
The Google Assistant is the most outstanding feature of this app. It can be used in any thread just by typing “@google.” By using this function you will be able to get suggestions such as restaurant recommendations automatically and show cards for both parties to see.
Privacy and Security
For the purpose of security and privacy, you can use an Incognito mode that encrypts chats end-to-end and makes use of restrained notifications.
Messaging to Users Other than Allo
Allo, like Duo, requires you to register a phone number. The app also gives you the option to message those who do not use Allo through app preview messages on Android or SMS.
