Google has finally released their most anticipated app of the year, just after the Google Duo, which is a simple video chat app released a month ago. Google Allo is here to challenge the likes of Whatsapp and Messenger which in actual fact are the most popular and widely accepted messaging apps in the World today. Tech Habor has also noticed that some selected mobile devices have had the privilege of using Google Allo.

Google Allo was announced at Google I/O. It promises to be one of the best and most used apps this summer.
Like Duo,Google Allo is link to your phone number meaning you would not need to sign up for an account. Unfortunately it’s might also not work on desktops for the time being.
Allo is packed with exciting features like stickers, emojis and the ability to draw on the screen, but the really cool thing about is Assistant, Google’s new intelligent ai assistant. Think of Assistant as the smarter, more talkative successor of Google Now. In theory, you should get fast, accurate answers, just as you would if you had a real life personal assistant.
One important thing I have noticed about the Google Allo is, it does not have an SMS in-built features like Facebook’s Messenger which has made a lot of mobile users ditch their phone’s default messaging app. This might cause a slight discomfort for users most especially if the have to switch between apps to get stuff done. I’m banking my hopes on Google Allo to integrate an SMS feature very very soon.
