- Google has kept his word. The new chat app from the company, Allo, has been launched in the Google Play Store. Google's other chat application, Duo saw earlier this summer born.
Where are Google chat services rather more or less bundled in Hangouts, the company has now chosen to take a few things apart. So Allo is intended primarily for text chats while Duo is a video chat service. This two-track approach is reminiscent of what Apple offers. The iPhone maker has iMessage for text chats and FaceTime for 'video calling'.
Allo was officially launched for Android, but the roll is gradually implemented. It may be that the app is not downloading to each device. When Allo comes to iOS, is not clear.
