Following are the salient features of this app –

Smart reply – Allo’s “Smart reply” function uses Google’s machine learning technology to suggest a reply to the last message, which can be selected from a few options.

Google assistant – This is one of the current apps that supports Google Assistant, a conversational virtual assistant.

The download size of the app is 9.33 MB and it has crossed 10000+ downloads within few hours of its release.

It is yet to be seen if this app turns out to be a threat to apps like Whatsapp, Hike etc.
