How does Google Allo work?

Like WhatsApp, Allo ultimately depends on the mobile number, which one can use for messaging or texting others. However, unlike Whatsapp, it allows users to send the message to each person using Android and iOS devices, not simply to the Allo users. Aside from that, Google also highlighted three major parts of Allo like Expression, Google Assistant, and Security.

Allo Self- Expression

Starting with self- expression, Google Allo in this segment features emoji, smiley and stickers like others have. However, an additional feature called Whisper-Shout makes the app different from other. Whisper-Shout allows the users to resize text by dredging up and down on the screen.

Allo Assistant

Rolling up to Allo Assistant, it is the latest iteration virtual assistant of Google that will allow the users to locate the nearby locations like food center or restaurant. If you are searching for a nearby Italian restaurant, then Google Allo Assistant can suggest you the nearest location. Google Assistant is also designed to remember things like name, address, and other information.


This feature allows all the chats and messages of Allo to encrypt. Along with this, Allo also facilitates users an Incognito Mode, which can make you enjoy better privacy with end-to-end encryption.
