Google Launched Two New Apps That Will Rock

No comments

At the annual I/O conference in 2016 Google launched two new apps i.e Duo and Allo. Duo is for video calling apps whereas Allo is for messaging apps. Here are few special features for Duo and Allo...



Duo (Video calling app)


One of the best and favorite feature is "knock knock" where users can get a live video preview of the incoming call, even on a locked screen. On iOS, Knock doesn’t work on locked screen, Once you answer, Duo seamlessly transitions you right into the call.



Google Product Manager Amit Fulay added, “Video-calling is the next big thing, but it has been full of friction in terms of user experience, and there are trust issues. You need a good network, a good time to do a video-call. So we decided to create an app that is really simple, and felt inviting. With Duo, we want to make it as simple as voice-calling,”.

Duo calls are in crisp HD video (up to 720p) and audio. work well even on spotty networks, so if bandwidth is limited it gracefully adjusts quality so you’re still able to connect.
So Don't worry all calls on Duo are end-to-end encrypted.
A one-on-one video calling app that runs on iOS and Android. 


Allo (a smart messaging app)


Apart from Google Assistant support, Allo is a fairly simple-to-use but feature hungry messaging app. You sign up with your mobile number much like WhatsApp instead of a Google account, as it means both iOS and Android users can use the service without having to join the Google ecosystem. It also features ‘Expressions’ which are essentially amped-up emojis and stickers that can be used in-chat. Speaking of chat, Allo features an incognito mode that offers end-to-end encryption and expiring chats for those ‘private’ conversations, also offering private notifications to keep prying eyes around you looking at your messages.



Allo has Smart Reply built in (similar to Inbox), so you can respond to messages without typing a single word. Smart Reply learns over time and will show suggestions that are in your style. For example, it will learn whether you’re more of a “haha” vs. “lol” kind of person. 

The assistant in Allo lets you bring things like Search, Maps, YouTube and Translate to all your conversations, so that you and your friends can use Google together.

Both apps will be available this summer on Android and iOS. Head over to Google Play and register to be notified when Allo and Duo are available. We can't wait for you to try them.
