The company launched its Duo video messaging app last month; users have been anticipating the text messaging complementary app Allo ever since. Allo was originally slated for a summer release; Google has just a few days to technically meet that deadline, lending credibility to the leak.
Allo features deep integration with Google Assistant, and with that comes the standard suite of messaging app features: sticker packs, voice messages, GIF searching, full encryption, private chatting, and more.
