Google introduces Allo, a smart and secure messaging app
While Google is still not yet giving up Hangouts, they introduced a new messaging platform that will keep your conversation going.
Allo is a smart messaging app designed by Google that seems to be a combination of features from Hangouts and Inbox. Like Hangouts, Allo uses your phone number to let you call or message people from your phonebook, and if you’ve been using Inbox, the new app uses Google’s machine learning algorithms to learn from the message you’re going to reply and suggest some phrases called Smart Reply.
Also, Google assistant features are already onboard including Search, Maps, YouTube, and Translate. This way, there’s no need to jump in between these apps as the assistant will bring it to your conversion when needed. There’s also the Whisper Shout feature that lets you enlarge the text you’re going to send.
Aside from these smart features, Allo has a secure Incognito mode too with end-to-end encryption and discreet notifications.
The will soon be available on Android and iOS sometime this summer.
