Google’s new Allo messaging app is now available on Android, and it comes with a big focus on simplicity. To make the experience as enjoyable as possible, Allo does not require a dedicated account, and it even allows you to message friends who aren’t yet using the app. Here’s how.
Google today started rolling out Allo, just in time to meet its summer launch timeframe. The latest chat messaging app from the company is meant to take on the likes of WhatsApp, WeChat, and iMessage and comes with features that have been standard on these messaging services for quite some time.
At Google I/O this year, Google unveiled Duo and Allo, its new messaging apps. While Duo is a simple video calling app, Allo is a new chat messaging app from the company that works similar to WhatsApp and iMessage. Google launched Duo last month and the app has been doing particularly well in developing countries due to its simple to use UI and excellent video quality even on spotty and slow Wi-Fi and mobile data networks.
