Allo app for smart messaging
Allo is a smart messaging app developed by google that makes your conversations easier, more expressive and personalized to your response patterns. It’s based on your phone number, so you can get in touch with anyone in your phonebook. And with deeply integrated machine learning, Allo has smart features to keep your conversations quick and help you get things done.
Allo has Smart Reply built in (similar to Inbox), so you can reply to messages without typing a single word. Smart Reply learns and will keep in memory over time and will show suggestions that are in your style. For example, it will learn whether you’re more of a “okay” vs. “lol” kind of person. The more you use Allo the more “you” i.e personalized the suggestions will become. Smart Reply also works with photos, providing smart suggestions related to the content of the photo. If your friend sends you a photo of chicken fry, for example, you may see Smart Reply suggestions like “yummy” or “I love chicken fry.”
Allo also features the Google assistant, bringing the facility of Google directly into your chats—helping you find information, get things done, and have fun. You can chat one-on-one with the assistant, or call on Google in a group chat with friends. Either way, you no longer have to change different apps to do things like book a dinner reservation with friends, get up-to-date sports scores, settle a bet, or play a game. The assistant in Allo lets you bring things like Search, Maps, YouTube and Translate to all your conversations, so that you and your friends can use Google together.
The Google assistant in Allo will memorize your world, so you can ask for things like your agenda for the day, details of your flight and hotel, or photos from your last travel. And since it understands natural language patterns, you can just chat like yourself and it’ll understand what you’re saying. For example, “Is my train delayed?” will return information about your train status.
