2017. Google Allo gets web interface



Google’s messenger Allo is now available on the web for desktop users. The service, which lets you chat with friends while taking advantage of features like stickers, “smart replies” for one-tap responses, and Google Assistant integration, among other things, has been in the works for some time. As reported before, Allo on the web uses a similar pairing process to WhatsApp to connect its web client with your mobile device. Currently, this process only works with Android phones, but iPhone will be supported soon.




2017. Google adds audio calling to Duo and file sharing to Allo



Google announced the changes to its video calling app Duo and messaging app Allo. When Duo originally launched, it had an odd omission: You could use it for a video call, but not an audio-only call. Now, Google fixed this; the company says audio calls will work well even on slow connections and won't eat up much data. Google Allo is also getting an important feature: file sharing. The option was a highly requested one in some markets, and now all Android users can use the app to share .pdf, .docs, .apk, .zip, and .mp3 documents.
