Google has set out to compete competitively with Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger and Telegram as they unveil their new messaging app- Google Allo
It won’t be their first time (they did fail with Hangout) but it seems they are set to challenge Whatsapp and Facebook this time.
The application is just around 10 megabyte and it’s available on the Playstore and Apple store. The number of users is increasing at a geometric rate and it’s getting good love.
Using The App
After installing the app, you get welcomed by a registration screen after your first run. In this page all you have to do is type your number and verify it.
After this, you get to take a photo or upload one for your Allo. Then you type your name .
By the time i was through with the registration to see 68 of my friends already on Allo, I realized the application needs no introduction.
Google’s Allo is just another messenger in a crowded market dominated by Whatsapp, Facebook messenger, and Telegram. It will be difficult to compete but Google is set for that.
Allo stands out in the sense that it added an Artificial Intelligence Assistant into the mix. You can check football scores, news updates, and it can suggest important topics of interest for you. Though, the assistant is still in beta but it’s currently doing a very good job. You can have an actial conversation with it and you’ll almost have the feeling of talking to a human being on the other end.
