Google I/O 2016: Allo Has a Tough Fight With WhatsApp for Message

Google has made a surprising announcement of Allo, a smart messaging app for both Android and iOS, available later this year.

The Allo is equipped with features that are more attuned to a user’s emotion or action in real life. You can even chat in the Incognito Mode on the Allo, just so that no one else is able to see or read the messages.

Emojis are big these days, and keeping that in mind Google has added newer ways of expressing emotions in the apt manner. You can even increase or decrease the size of the font, just so that the other person can understand what you’re really feeling while chatting with them.

Allo also supports Google Assistant which makes the messaging platform a one-stop hub for Search content as well.

The fact that Allo will be available on Android as well iOS means, Google is seriously looking at ways to simplify our communication modes. Also, it’s hard to deny that Allo is Google’s WhatsApp and iMessage rival.
