It could be an important week for Google as the company is said to be releasing its marquee messaging platform for the public. Allo’s release date is, according to a very strong source, scheduled for September 21.

Going by what Evan Blass says, you’ll be using Allo this week. It would be more than four months after the messaging platform was announced at Google I/O 2016 alongside Duo, the video-calling platform.
Allo’s primary features include Google Assistant, Smart Reply, Ink, Whisper Shout, Stickers, and Incognito Mode. Most of them rely upon AI-based technology in which the app analyzes conversations and makes suggestions.
Rather than tapping into your Google Account, Allo utilizes phone numbers for communication.
