Google Launches Allo Messaging App for Android and Ios Google has released its new messaging app, Allo. Adding Allo to Duo, the Google I/O is complete: Google Duo offers video chats, and Google Allo is for text-based communication. Allo is an instant messaging mobile app developed by Google that includes a virtual assistant and provides a “smart reply” function that allows users to reply without typing. It was announced at Google I/O on May 18, 2016 and launched on September 21, 2016. The app is available on Android and iOS.

After installation, you must specify your mobile number, which also serves as your user name. Allo asks you to take a selfie to use as your profile photo, and then you are all set to go. Additionally, Allo automatically links with your Google profile, which is necessary for the Google Assistant to function properly. If you want, you can go into settings and disconnect it from your Google account.
Google Allo Features
Allo’s “Smart reply” function uses Google’s machine learning technology to suggest a reply to the last message, which can be selected from a few options. The feature also analyses images sent to the user in order to suggest responses. Similar to the smart reply feature seen in Google’s Inbox app, it learns from the user’s behaviour to adapt its suggestions over time. Allo is one of the apps that support Google Assistant, a conversational virtual assistant.
Incognito mode is an optional mode that includes expiring chats, private notifications, and end-to-end encryption. For encryption, the app uses the Signal Protocol.
Google Allo: Chats, Incognito Chats, and Automatic Responses
The basis of all functions is, of course, the classic chats. Group conversations are also possible. You can send voice messages. Additionally, Google had artists create lots of stickers with a variety of messages and moods.
Automatic responses are available for English-language conversations – Allo gives you suggestions for appropriate responses – such as “Haha”, “Awesome” and so on. This allows for quick reactions, but it does not replace actual interaction.
