Google Allo - Google's new messaging app with Google Assist - iOS and Android

If you've been looking for a new messaging app and you and your friends don't already use one of the many other alternatives then Google Allo may be for you, works just like WhatsApp in the way you sign up with your phone number.

Features:

Smart Reply

Respond to messages without typing a single word. Smart Reply learns over time and suggests responses to text and photos, in your style.

Ink

Get creative with the photos you send by doodling on them or adding text.

Stickers

Say it all with the perfect sticker. Stickers in Google Allo are designed by independent artists and studios from around the world.

SHOUT or whisper

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.

Meet your personal Google Assistant

Google Allo brings you the Google Assistant, preview edition. Find restaurants nearby, share videos and get answers, all from within your conversation with your 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.

Incognito mode

Send messages with end-to-end encryption, use private notifications to help keep your chats more discreet and control how long your messages stick around with expiring chats.

A bit late trying to catch up with whatsapp. Why would all the people you want to message download this?

And real security worries - messages not encrypted, unlike whatsapp, and for google to store and use just as they want.

Plus All has been receiving not good feedback !

At least they are moving with the times, not enough innovation spent on the standard apps on the phones these days, step in the right direction.

​What innovation? About 95% of what Allo does most other messaging apps do already. Google is doing a bit of an "Apple" atm. New app! What's new? Not much, but look its pretty and from us! Now give us all your data
