Google has introduced the smart messaging app Google Allo for both Android and iOS in the last month. According to the sources, this app could not gain the popularity as Google expected. Now Google has released the latest update Google Allo 2.0.
To reach the company’s unfulfilled goal of attracting users, the company has reportedly released this update for Google Allo. Google Play store did not update the change log yet, but the Google Nexus’s Twitter account has posted the announcement regarding this update.
As you all knew this smart communication app from Google will let you say more and more in the chats. You can express yourself with the stickers, doodles, text and smileys/ Emojis.
In this update, Allo gets the support of split-screen mode to the devices running with the OS Android 7.0 Nougat. With this feature, the user can chat in one window and in parallel he can use another app on the same screen.
Another feature in this update is, the user can directly reply from the notification screen instead of heading into the Allo application. This feature will be live for the first time in the Android 7.0 Nougat. Apart from this, the app is updated with the Monochrome theme. This theme can be enabled from the Settings in the app.
Similar to other social messaging apps, Allo now introduced the launcher shortcut for the new conversation. It includes the Android Wear support and GIF keyboard support. Other features in this app include the Incognito key alerts and a splash screen.
Expected features in Google Allo 2.0 update.
- Direct Voice Recognition in Assistant
- App shortcut for Android 7.1+
- Monochrome chat in settings
- GIFs in keyboard for Android 7.1+
- Incognito key alerts
- Quick Reply support

Soon this latest Google Allo 2.0 update will be rolling out for all the users. Google Allo has been downloaded more than 10 million times and over 5 million installs. The users who have yet downloaded the app can download from Google Play Store and Apple App store.
Soon we can expect the support for Hindi Assistant by the year end.
