We all know Whatsapp and how awesome it is. Instant Messengers (IM) have been very helpful in reducing the use of airtime for communicating with friends and loved ones. As a typical Nigerian, we all want something that is cheap and efficient. Today, almost all the IM have some kind of economic value which is why a new player in the market is a welcome development. I’m introducing Google Allo, a smart messaging app that helps you say more and do more. Express yourself better with stickers, doodles, and different emojis & text. It is also installed with Google Assistant which is a kind of virtual helper. A nice tool however, in Allo it comes as a preview edition. Here are some great features from the app:
Respond to messages without typing a single word. Smart Reply learns over time and suggests responses to text and photos, in your style.
Get creative with the photos you send by doodling on them or adding text.
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 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.
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. It means you have total control over your privacy. Messages get deleted from the recipients phone after the duration of time you choose when using Incognito mode.
The Google Assistant and Smart Reply are only available in English at this time and the app works on Android running on version 4.1 above. It is available on Google Play Store. Like this app? Add me up with 08033730881. I’m already enjoying this amazing app.
