Google has launched a variety of messaging services, with Hangouts being its best attempt. The recently launched smart messaging service Allo was another recent attempt, but has so far, has fallen short of what many of us want out of a messaging application, such as basic things like actual SMS support and the ability to use it to replace our default text messaging.

With that in mind, we’ve decided to pit Hangouts and Google Allo against each other. Is one better than the other? Find out in this epic face off after the break.

Allo will get proper SMS support in a future version

Allo launched Tuesday night to much hype and excitement. Unfortunately, much of that excitement turned to disappointment as users figured out that Allo wouldn’t be able to replace their default text messaging app, largely because of the lack of any sort of text messaging support.

It’s not all bad news, though. It’s likely that Allo will get full SMS support in a future version, according to a hint from Allo’s co-lead Justin Uberti.

Here’s what everyone is saying about Allo

Google launched its highly anticipated smart messaging service Allo last night, and it’s pretty much turned out to be a disaster from the start. The premise behind Allo is that Google Assistant will add seamless contextual information to conversations, but with Assistant only being a “Preview Edition” it certainly doesn’t work as intended. And since Assistant doesn’t work that well at all, all we really have is another glorified messaging app–it’s just like WhatsApp, Telegram, Facebook Messenger, and the list could go on forever.

Hit the break to find out what everyone is saying about Allo.

While we were given a heads-up as to when Google’s Allo messaging would begin rolling out, no one really expected it to become available to the masses in the small hours of the night. It did, though, and as is usual with new apps, people have been tearing into Allo, finding out all sorts of interesting things. Something that has been found out in the few hours since Allo officially launched is the change in Google’s stance of only storing messages transiently, and not indefinitely.

Searching for files or folders on the cloud is usually only as good as the terms you are typing in, which means if you are incorrectly spelling a word, the results may not show what you are looking for. For Google Drive users at least, the act of searching for an item has just become a little easier thanks to Google integrating its search technology with it, enabling users to find files or document with greater speed and ease.

Google is rolling out its new messaging platform to Android and iOS devices worldwide after months of waiting by the public.

Allo, which was announced earlier this year at Google I/O 2016, is finally live. The company is positioning the platform as a “smart messaging app” that uses internal and external information to create meaningful conversations between people.

Speed, expression, intelligence, and privacy are the areas that Allo focues heavily on.
