The update is only for Android users for now and there is no word whatsoever when Apple users will be offered parity in features.
Allo may not be the blockbuster for Google in the same way that Stranger Things was for Netflix, but it has done well enough for itself. While the application on Android platform upgrades to version 2.0, it brings with it a couple of interesting features. As with every other update, the rollout is expected to reach users in phases. Yes it's a good app, but it doesn't add significant value to a user's life. Downloading of Messenger is available on Google Play Store.
Google Allo did not quite have the start that Google had hoped for the app. The new instant messaging app hasn't been gaining traction simply because there are two many similar apps already. The "All contacts" and "Frequent" tabs have been given a refreshed, unified look instead of existing as tabs. This will be followed up by a series of other clues upon completing each step and can end up leading to some real world prizes, which is perhaps the main reason to give this a shot if you think you can complete the scavenger hunt before others.
The round effect of Android Nougat and Google Pixel phones can also be felt when inside the conversations. But we won't forget about Google Messenger - and just another messaging app from Google. This reads "SMS" or "MMS" depending on the message being sent at a given moment.
Notice right the time log in to Google Messenger, it's a newly user interface. It has also added Offline voice actions feature, which allows you to play music, turn on wifi, turn on flashlight using your voice.
For GIF-obsessed users, Google Allo now lets you send GIFs to friends as the app now supports GIF keyboard.
