Google Allo: Everything You Need to Know, The Smart Messaging App



To be candid with you, if I’m among WhatsApp management team, we should be worried by now because the word Number 2 doesn’t exist in Google dictionary, they always want to be number one. I’m already loving this Google Allo IM app must especially the Google  virtual assistant.


Google Allo is more than a messaging app, you can chat with friends on Android and iOS, send videos and pictures, stickers etc… What even makes it more unique is the Google Virtual assistant added to it. 

If you are just getting started, download it from Playstore or iTunes

Setting up Allo
It is pretty easy to set up after download, add your phone number, and a verification code will be sent to it, after which you’ll be required to add your profile picture and username… You are now set. 

Google Virtual Assistant.
Thumbs up to Google assistant, it is a more smarter and chatty version of Google Now.
You can actually talk right to the Assistant in a private conversation, or summon it in the middle of a chat with friends by typing @google and asking it a question. I’ve found Assistant to be most useful when talking to it in a private chat. If you have something you need to ask, just ask away. The Assistant chat bot will then send you the best result it can, and you can send it followup questions if you’d like.

You can have conversation with the assistant about anything and it will give you cute replies. If you are bored, the assistant can spice up your day.

Security
You can use Allo in incognito mode, where your text messages will not be logged and the chat gets fully encrypted. To go incognito mode, 

Open Allo>>Start new chart and start incognito chat.

In all, Google should have bundle Duo into Allo since Video calling is one feature that is not available on whatsapp messenger and it will have given them super edge over WhatsApp IM. Though we are still waiting for more improvement on Google virtual assistant.

The question now is, who is going to convince who to switch to Allo?

The video and audio calling is superb, especially the audio, very clear. plusit uses a very small data. I uses less than 2mb for 5 minutes.

  15. It'll be tough for Google Allo to beat WhatsApp. WhatsApp hold ground o! IMO, it will be like Google Plus vs Facebook. Most people still prefer Facebook. But you never can tell, it might just be like Whatsapp and 2go. Who still dey use 2go?
