On Monday we reported that this week Google will present its new chat application called Allo. And now this happened. Allo is now available for Android and iOS.

Google Allo is an intelligent messaging app that helps you to say more. Express yourself better with stickers, doodles, huge emoticons and text.

Allo brings Google Assistant, which lets you reply to messages without typing even a single word. Over time Allo learns to respond and offers text and photos. The app can even find restaurants for you and to share videos.


Another strong feature of Allo is encrypted from end to end. Your chats will be discreet and you can control how long to exist certain messages.

“All chats in Google Allo are encrypted using industry standard technologies like Transport Layer Security (TLS). But we went a step beyond this and we created a mode within Google Allo called Incognito (h/t Chrome). When you chat in Incognito mode, messages have end-to-end encryption and additional privacy features like discreet notifications and message expiration.”

Here are just a few ways your Google Assistant can help in Google Allo:


Make plans with friends. You can easily move from discussing dinner with friends to making plans for the night, right in your chat. Just add the Assistant to your group chat and ask for movie times, local restaurants and more. You can also research travel destinations, flights and hotels together with friends.

Get answers. Get the latest info on everything from news, weather, traffic, sports, or your upcoming flights status. Ask the Assistant to send you daily updates on the information you care about.

Have some fun. Ask your Assistant to share that funny YouTube video or play games with friends right in your group chat — for instance you can compete to guess a movie title based on a series of emojis.
