So finally an Application by technology giant Google that every one is saying to be a whatsapp competitor has been released.
But really ??? Is it so …
Lets find out.
Allo is now available. Google’s main aim to develop such an application is to compete with applications like whatsapp , facebook messenger which has over a billion user base and they are also “the most downloaded” applications on google playstore.

So without wasting our time lets quickly go through its features.
This is the most amazing feature of this application.
Here you can type anything and you will get the automatic reply to anything and every thing instantly.
For an instance when I typed “I am bored”, the reply was :
It gave me a video from youtube along with a witty caption : ” A cute Video is usually the solution”
And when I tried typing “Cricket Score”
It instantly came up with scores of running live match, mentioning “Here are the recent scores for ICC”.
Now check this one out:
When I asked about the President of United States, the reply was :
Pretty Impressive right?!!
Yes this app has got the guts to overrule and change the entire chatting scenario. Well this was not the end, I tried even more stuffs with this application to check it at each and every ground level so here are the results:
It came up with its most flamboyant nature when it was asked to search a location
And Bang on !!!
It gave all the related results of the location, their contact addresses as well as their numbers.So we can say that it mostly gives answers from google itself, but to integrate it with the chat application is really a cool feature.
In incognito mode you can talk to any one without having to worry about the data security. You need not worry about google storing your information as these messages are end to end encrypted by google itself. So these messages can only be read by two people one is sender and other is receiver.
But whatsapp already has this feature with all the converstions. All the messages are end to end encrypted.
To counter this google said in an official statement that if all the messages are end to end encrypted, then it might no be able to track the behaviour of the user and ultimately Allo will not be able to learn, and that is everything about allo.

This is also one of the special features of Allo application.
After every activity it analyses the messages and gives the number of response options to us.
For example if I search for a movie it will suggest us to book movies, show timings etc.
You can see that it gives suggestions like action, comedy, drama, romance as I searched for “showtimes” in movie catogery.
This has been the result of behavioural and tactical usage of AI(Artificial Intellegence) by google and by using AI itself everything about Allo will evolve as per the user’s usage of the applicatoin
This is also one of the nice features which can show our excitement.
Suppose you want to show your excitement in a group conversation and express you happiness, then follow the below steps.
- Write your message.
- Drag your send message button upwards.
This applies to emojis too, as by using emojis you can better express your excitement.
This is also cool features as this allows us to send a message as we are whipering in ones ears.
- Type you message.
- Tap the send button and drag it down.
Scribble On You Pictures
You also can now scribble on your pictures before sending them to any one.
All you need to do is to follow the below steps.
- Tap the + sign on the bar.
- Import a picture.
- And there is a symbol of pen like : .
- Select that and select your color and scribble your message.
Allo has this great feature in which if someone sends you a picture then Allo will recognize the image and will give you suggestions based on the image, what reply you need to give to the sender of the image.
Like in the above image sender sends a photo of skydiving.
The allo application does not tells you that its an image from skydiving but it gives you the suggestions for reply by recognizing the image .
This is also one of the profound usage of the AI in this application and also the way it will analyze the data and act accordingly.
There are many more features that we have not covered yet, so stay tuned as we will update this post time to time as we get to other new features.
Google has paid some attention to this application but in all in all it is the users who will decide that it is really a worthy application to be used or just vanish in the piles of applications launched per day.
