Things to know about Google “Allo”.
There are so many apps available for chatting and connecting with people and have been an important part of daily our life, to name a few we have: WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Viber, IMO, and Hike. And these apps have come up a long way to convince us with its different features.
In this lead, Google has entered the market with its very own new app named “Allo”. Google is something, we all use daily!! Be it for searching a place, reading, or anything, Google has always served our purpose. And if Google is the father of everything, “Allo” is the baby of Google!! The app has got some of the amazing features to make your chatting, messaging, Searching experience an amazing one. Let’s look into the features of “Allo” app.
Account Creation and Sign in of Allo App
Account Creation and Sign in is similar to that of “WhatsApp”. You just need to download the app and sign in where, you will be asked to enter your mobile number so you can use it to send instant messages to anyone in your phonebook, along with other Allo users. Once you get logged in, you will be asked to provide a user name and you can put up your desired profile picture.
An additional feature to this is, you can also sync your Gmail account with the app, and keep track of mails and important meetings with built-in AL powered by Google Assistant, the assistive technology. This is quite a unique feature of Allo unlike other apps.
Smart and Quick Reply
Another unique feature we loved using in “Allo” is its Smart and quick reply feature. In this feature, you can respond to a chat with just a tap on the options. Google makes it easy for you and provides you with options to reply for e.g. if you are chatting with your friend and your friend asks “Hey, How are you” Google, provides you with options like: “Fine”, “good” and you can quickly choose anyone of them!! Isn’t that so quick and smart?? This feature improves over time and adjusts to your style. We love this feature as you can just click and send it when you are in hurry.
Better experience with Photos, Emojis and Stickers
We love chatting and on the top of it we love sending those quirky Emojis, Stickers, and most of all sharing our pictures!! And “Allo” makes you experiment with your pictures more. You can scribble your photos or write something on them before sharing.
While, emojis have been little similar to WhatsApp, the new thing is you can make emojis and text larger or smaller in size by simply dragging the “send” button up or down. Not just this, it has a wide new range of Stickers!! So, bring out the fun and poke a friend with a new sticker, you have got so many options!!
Google at your Assistance
Yes, Google Allo comes up with AI(Artificial Intelligence) based Google Assistant. Now, you can have a conversation with Google — you no longer need to leave a conversation with friends just to grab an address, or pick a venue for party. Just type @google to bring your Assistant into any group chat. And you can also chat one-on-one with your Assistant in Allo.
Google Assistant helps in many ways, just by adding Google Assistant your chat you can ask for nearby restaurants, movie timings, game zones and more.
You can also ask for any news, location, maps, weather, or any video from the YouTube. Google Assistant works like a Jeannie for you!! This is a very unique and amazing feature since it allows you to be on the chat and view or share the information at the same time.
This is just now enough as, Google Assistant will be available with more Google products, to give you an altogether different experience. The Assistant is initially available in English, but it’s soon going to come more languages.
We are in safe hands, if it’s in terms of Google Security!! All the chats done in Allo are encrypted using industry standard technologies like Transport Layer Security (TLS). But Google has taken up a step forward and created a mode within Google Allo called Incognito (h/t Chrome).
When you chat in Incognito mode, messages have end-to-end encryption and additional privacy features like discreet notifications and message expiration. Hence, you can rest assure as your messages and chats are going to be safe and secured all the time.
We all have been using a lot of apps for chatting and messaging and we usually are reluctant to try something different altogether. But, this app has come up with some of the distinct and powerful features and you might want to give it a try as all of it is available free of cost!! We hope you all loved reading this post.
