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.
