You can chat with friends (on Android or iOS), send pictures and videos, and express yourself better with stickers, doodles, and HUGE emojis & text. After digging a little deeper, though, you’ll find there’s a lot to like about Allo. We’re here to help you. In this post, we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about Google Allo. Allo brings you the Google Assistant, preview edition. With a plethora of security features and Google’s new Assistant in tow, its pretty safe to say Allo is the most anticipated Google app of the year.
WhatsApp has always been the go-to Messaging app. But it always lacked a few features, be it pinned messages or stickers or whatever. Google has always aimed to dominate the communication apps market. Hangouts, Talk, Google Plus, Buzz, Who’s Down are some of Google’s previous attempts to rule.
There are dozens of messaging apps, and each has its own unique list of features. You might want to give it a try for the amazing set of new and powerful features that this messaging app has to offer. Why would you use Allo every day ? Because it has artificial intelligence. And all of it is available totally free of cost.
Google Allo has a clean design, easy-to-use interface and is easy to install. In terms of basic design and feel, Allo looks better than WhatsApp. The new design is slicker, cleaner and more attractive.
Google Allo signup and account creation
Google Allo sign up is pretty simple. By using your mobile number, so create your account and you can use it to send instant messages to anyone in your phonebook, along with other Allo users.
The Best Part: You can also sync your Gmail account with Allo, and keep track of mails and important notifications with built-in AL powered by Google Assistant, the assistive technology. This feature makes it unique.
The Google Assistant
You can actually talk right to the Assistant in a private conversation, or summon it in the middle of a chat with friends by typing@google and asking it a question. If you are wondering about the travel time to a certain place, or the best available flights to a certain destination or discounts on hotels and all you have to do is type in @google followed your question or order. Next thing you know, it will be providing you with all the details, accompanied by a series of pictures wherever available. Google Assistant is actually in a “preview” stage at the moment, so you may find some bugs or lag.
You can also use Allo in incognito mode, where your text messages will not be logged and the chat gets fully encrypted. However, this also restricts some smart features. To combat this problem, Allo plans to keep only temporary message logs, in order to improve the Google Assistant and Smart reply features. Allo offers an Incognito Mode, which means you get to access not only end-to-end encrypted messages but also value added features like expiring chats and private notifications. Benefit? You can keep all yours messages safe, as well as control how and when to permanently delete them from your device. Basically, you get additional controls over the privacy of your chats.
These are the top Allo features you need to know
Google Allo also includes a cool incognito chat mode, similar to Chrome Incognito feature, which features a self-destruct timer, discreet notifications and the messages send in the chat are end-to-end encrypted. Self-destructing messages is another feature WhatsApp lacks, so Allo wins here.
Smart Reply is a pretty handy feature analyzes your conversations and then suggests reply texts accordingly. This comes pre-activated in Google Allo when you don’t want to type much for instance while you’re driving. Although, I won’t recommend you to do that. Well, Allo’s smart reply feature can also analyze images and make a reply suggestion about them.
For instance, if the user is in a hurry and gets message from a friend asking whether he/she is free, nifty Allo suggests quick response phrases like “Yes, Why?”/ “Not sure, Why?.”
Even if a sender shoots a picture on Allo, it is intelligent enough to make out the difference between animal, human and a place and suggest phrases like “nice Labrador”, “Aww…so cute”, “Cool” , emojis, and other options right on the texting tab, thus saving time to type them.
Google will suggest Smart Replies based on what it thinks you’re going to say next. The app can provide automatic responses to messages on behalf of the user. It does this through a software that contains machine-learning technology, which gets better at picking up the user’s most frequently used responses with increased usage of the app. Allo creates good user-friendly experience will all these.
