Over the years, IM (Instant Messaging) market has been constantly growing. We have had apps like Messenger, WhatsApp, and Snapchat trying to make our medium for daily conversation. Google had it’s app, Hangouts for years but it failed to get any real attention. Today Google has come out with another app, Google Allo.
Before we begin it might be worthy to know that like we can have things like iMessage for PC, Allo is limited to your phones only.
Google Allo tries to mix up messaging with Artificial Intelligence.
Incognito conversation and Google Assistant are probably the reason why the app stands out from the list of other IM apps. Like Snapchat Incognito mode lets you chat with your buds that are automatically deleted as per the deletion date you set.
On the other hand, Google Assistant tries to make your conversation more easy and meaningful. It can suggest you answers or display contexts from google when you need them. Assistant lets you browse through youtube or Google and then send relevant results all within the app. The app will also serve as your personal assistant – meaning- you can ask to tell you a joke or news or whatever else you like.
UPDATE: You can draw your own arts to the pics you send.
