While WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger are one of the most used messaging apps, Google Allo just made its entry into the market.
How is it different?
It comes with something called machine learning.
Allo makes use of machine learning and natural language processing to recommend smart replies. The smart replies feature in Allo is unlike any other; it suggests replies based on how you chat with people, and how you personally write messages. It instantly detects what you are writing and gives smart suggestions based on the context. And the more you use Allo to message people, the more deeper it will understand your writing style. The smart suggestions will be tailored for you. For instance, it will know that you prefer to reply with “wanna go out” instead of “want to go out” and that will then come up in the smart replies.
It will also analyse the pictures you receive from people and will suggest smart replies based on the things in the picture. For instance, if the picture is of a cat the smart reply that’ll come up would be “Cute”, and if the picture is of a pizza the smart reply would be something like “Yummy”.
You can even chat with the app itself by typing “@google” to ask questions about anything. From weather reports to restaurant reviews, you can ask for anything and Allo will reply like a normal person.
You can ask it to set an alarm or add things up on your calendar (only on Android).
Next big feature: ‘Expression’
You would be using emojis in your daily chats; Allo brings out emojis and stickers in your conversations in a unique and fun way. You can even add colourful drawings to the pictures you send.
Well, the new messaging app certainly looks exciting and it seems like the one, everyone would like to try. Its machine learning and intelligent reply features are one of the things that definitely appealing.
