The talk of the town is the ‘smart’ chat app that just hits the store last Tuesday. After a long wait, Google has launched the “Google Allo” a smart message app on 20th September for Android and iOS to express yourself through chat, stickers, Google Assistant and so on. But what makes it so exciting for the world to go crazy? Here we’ve listed out the new exciting features of Google Allo. Let’s roll.
Respond to message without typing
A voice message would do that, what’s the exciting factor here? No, you are wrong fellas! Allo enables the smart reply function wherein you can respond to your messages with a tap. For example, you can send ‘Yup’ with a tap for a friend messaging “Are you coming to the party?”. The AI recognizes the picture that your friend has sent and suggest you with suitable replies. If you receive a picture of a puppy or a baby, the suggestion would be “Aww..”, “So Sweet’, and “Nice”.
Is it a take on WhatsApp and Siri?
While fighting for pizza and lasagna for a dinner plan over chat with friends, ask your Google Assistant for ‘Nearby Italian Restaurant’ without leaving your chat by typing @google to bring your assistant into the chat. Google has merged the messaging and personal assistant features of WhatsApp and Siri into one platform. Hmm, seems a take on Whatsapp and Siri.
