After the failure of Google talk and Hangouts, Google has again launched a new messaging app. The company has been working on making available its “Google Allo” since the middle of this week and now the WhatsApp competitor is available to everyone.
On Wednesday, Google started releasing its new messaging app Allo. The app was not immediately available everywhere in the world but was rolled out country to country. As of now, the app is available to everyone.
Google Allo is actually a competitor for WhatsApp. Allo users can chat with each other through the app. In addition, the app has a smart assistant in it. Users can request this smart assistant to do a task via voice or via text. It works somewhat like the voice assistant Siri on an iPhone.
For Android and iOS
People who wanna try the new app can download it from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. The app is thus available for all Android devices and Apple iPhones and iPads. Using the app doesn’t require a Google account. Allo is in fact associated with the mobile phone number. Anyone who optionally wants to link a Google account to Allo can benefit from additional features such as searching for information from Allo in the Gmail mailbox.
