Google announced a new smarter messaging app that is more productive and expressive and especially doesn’t require any sign-ups and is based entirely on your phone number. Also, it connects to your Google account for all app stuff.

During the Google I/O developer conference, the tech major announced the new app would be available by the end of this summer. Since Google has failed to capture the mobile messaging market with Hangouts, it has come up with Allo, which is pronounced like Aloe that might give a tough fight to Messenger by Facebook. It will be available for free for Android and iOS users.

Allo features a new built-in Google assistant that will make your chatting with friends funnier and easier. It has a conversational interface for getting info from Google’s @Google conversation, which contains info on all your conversation.

Interestingly, it suggests replies at the bottom of the screen when you chat, which Google calls “suggestion chips” powered by a machine learning engine. It also “learns overtime” to provide smart replies means it anticipates what a user wants to say next. This smart reply feature uses another image recognition engine and contains various attractive stickers and Emojis.

You can even reserve your restaurant’s booking; check sports scores similar to Google search without tapping into another app. The smart reply uses pictures to communicate with your friends. When you send a photograph, you can doodle on it. Google chatbots act as personal assistants which provide the facility of smart messaging using Google’s knowledge graph, which searches from GIFs and understands many entities.

Another feature that changes how text messaging is handled to better convey the message is “Whisper Shout.” With this, before you send a message, you are allowed to shrink or embiggens the text, which is the most exciting feature & hasn’t been seen in other text messaging apps.

You need not think about privacy as Allo uses end-to-end encryption incognito mode, which works similar to chrome to provide a high level of privacy which means deleting the conversations gone forever.
