Why Google Allo is different from other chat apps?
Google Allo fulfills your requirement of instant chat apps to interact with other users and ping them quick messages. However, the app is entirely different from its rivals chat apps as it is powered with AI assistance. Google Allo comes with an intuitive design that makes it straight forward for the new users and easy to get used to it. The speed of the app is a plus point for Google; moreover, it can also work effectively even on the poor internet connection.
But, the Google Assistant integration is the unique feature that separates the app from others. The Google Assistant learns about your typing style and takes help of the machine learning to come up with quick replies. Using these replies, you can instantly answer in any conversation without even typing. Along with this, you can also ask for the help from Google Assistance via one-to-one chat or by typing @google in the group chats.

There is no doubt that there a number of chat apps available in the app stores with multiple features. Where WhatsApp is currently ruling the industry, the apps like Viber and Telegram are gaining popularity. But, no app offers AI help that could assist the user to a very prominent level. Google Allo is very easy and lightweight app that runs well even on limited internet connectivity which is a great relief for the users. The AI factor puts an additional point in the bag of Google Allo against the other chat apps. However, the only problem with the app is that not many users are aware of the app or using it. But, we believe in the coming time Google will turn the tables and make its chat app available in most of the user’s smartphones.
