The incredible messaging service Google Allo released a 2.0 update that brings a whole batch of new incredible features that will be fantastic for its users, including Multitasking, splash screen, incognito key alerts, landscape, GIFs in keyboard for Android 7.1+, direct share, direct replies in notification and many more. The only bad news is that SMS/MMS messaging is not included.

A Bunch Of Options To Send Messages

According to the International Business Times, the Google Allo 2.0 update came from Google´s official Nexus Twitter account, and it was launched at the company´s I/O annual event, alongside the DUO video calling app. Also, this is the first major update after the hi-tech giant made the Allo app available for users on both Android and iOS platforms.

One of the most amazing facts about Google Allo´s updates is that you can count with the features that exists in many other messaging apps, which means that you will have a bunch of options to send any message in the way you prefer, more comfortable than you can ever imagine it. Also, when you use the Android sharing menu your frequent contacts will appear, as reported by PC World.

Two Problems Of Google Allo 2.0

The only major annoyance for users since the official release of Google Allo 2.0 update was the lack of ability to replay from the message notification. On the other hand, one of the best features is definitely the reply button, which allows to replying directly from the notifications, being a similar option as the quick replies on Hangouts and Google Messenger.

According to the International Business Times, Google Allo 2.0's most notable feature is support for Android Wear. The latest update allows users to reply with their voice and emoji on Android Wear, by tapping on the notification and start speaking or tap Draw emoji. However, another problem is that there aren´t shortcuts for specific conversations like you get on Google´s Messenger SMS app.
