Google Allo Update Features – What else they’ve got to include?

Although these features are already implemented in many other apps, Google Allo is going to add them now onto Android. Look what they are:

  • Backup and Restore options
  • Incognito Mode for Group Chats ( Quite Interesting feature)
  • Rich Link Previews on Allo.
  • Allo Desktop version (Rumoured Update for Allo)

What are these features actually?

These features are mentioned in a Tweet by Amit Fulay, Google Allo’s Product Head. In short, the above the mentioned features are:

  • Backup and Restore is just a basic option that’s waiting to roll out on Allo. It allows the users to choose between chat and chat+media ‘Backup and Restore’ options. You can either backup chats and media in Google Drive or you can go for a local backup.
  • Incognito Mode for Group chats literally means that messages just disappear after a pre-set time by the user. Just like Snapchat. But, the interesting thing here is that Google Allo provides end-to-end encryption for these incognito chats too. Weird, but smart feature in my opinion. Google Assistant doesn’t work in these chats.

  • Rich Link Previews provide the users with the previews of links before they open them.
  • Google Allo Desktop version will behave just like WhatsApp desktop version. And it is a rumoured feature that’ll be launched soon, maybe at Google I/O 2017.
