Google Allo is an instant messaging mobile app developed by Google that includes a virtual assistant and provides a smart reply function that allows users to reply without typing. It was announced at Google I/O on May 18, 2016 and launched on September 21, 2016. The app is available on Android and iOS. Download the latest version of Google messaging apps.
Allo’s “Smart reply” function uses Google’s machine learning technology to suggest a reply to the last message, which can be selected from a few options. The feature also analyses images sent to the user in order to suggest responses. Similar to the smart reply feature seen in Google’s Inbox app, it learns from the user’s behaviour to adapt its suggestions over time. Smart Reply learns over time and suggests responses to text and photos, in your style.
Allo is one of the apps that support Google Assistant, a conversational virtual assistant. “Whisper Shout” allows the user to increase or decrease the size of a message to represent volume. No more typing in ALL CAPS to get your point across. Say it louder or quieter by changing the size of your text with a quick swipe. Google Allo also lets users draw on photos before sending them. Express yourself better with stickers, doodles, and HUGE emojis & text.
Google Allo brings you the Google Assistant, preview edition. Find restaurants nearby, share videos to watch, and get answers, right in your conversation with friends. Add @google to your group conversation or chat one-on-one with your Assistant. It’s your own personal Google, always ready to help.
You can also send messages with end-to-end encryption by using Incognito mode, use private notifications to help keep your chats more discreet, and control how long your messages stick around with expiring chats.
