Google announced two new apps on their I/O event. Google Duo and Google Allo, both apps are great. If you haven't tried them yet, then give them a try. Allo is live now, and I've noticed that it has kind of exciting features which are better than any messenger even WhatsApp .
Allo has a personal assistant named as Google Assistant. You can search anything via your voice and texts. It will show you all priority results in the response. Google is continuously working on their assistant interactions.
1.) Built-in help for users.
2.) Private and secure connections.
3.) New stickers and shouts to make the conversations interesting.
Google introduced 'Incognito mode' in Allo messenger because important conversations need the privacy. In Incognito mode if a user gets a message it won't show that text on the lock screen.
Set auto timer to delete the texts is also a great feature for temporary conversations.
Smart Reply is an another great feature in the app. This automated reply saves the user's time. It reads text using artificial intelligence and pattern which also monitors the users as they reply. According to this, it brings good Suggestions.
Image Recognition is an excellent feature in Google's Allo. It can understand the difference between dog and child voice. Also, It can recommend what you should answer.
The phone number is your primary identity on Allo, but you can sync up with Gmail account to store the data on it.
Use the @google bot for better conversations and don't leave the chat box just to search new things on the browser just ask it.
Because of these features, I think it is better than any chat messenger, but it needs many enhancements.
