Google’s smart messaging app Allo expected to launch on September 21

Google announced two new apps – Allo and Duo, in May this year during its Google I/O 2016 developer conference. Allo is a smart messaging app whereas Duo is a video calling app. While Duo was rolled out last month, we were still waiting for Google to launch Allo. However, it seems our wait is over as Google might launch the app this week on September 21.


This information comes from popular and reliable leakster Evan Blass who tweetedHello, Allo (launches this week).” followed by another tweet giving us an exact date i.e., September 21. While there’s no word from Google yet about the launch, looking at the track record of Evan Blass, we can say that Allo will indeed be launched on September 21.

Allo is a smart messaging app which is tied to your phone number like WhatsApp which means you don’t have to sign-in with your Google ID. After you have signed up using your phone number, the app will pull up all your contacts which have Allo installed, allowing you to chat with them.

Google Allo comes with features like Google Assistant, Smart Reply, Ink, Whisper Shout, Incognito Mode, and yes, Stickers as well. Click here if you want to know more about Allo. By the way, which messaging app do you use the most?
