Google Allo to go live on September 21, according to Evan Blass


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.

    It means everything we send through this app will be analyzed by Google Servers… nice… I’m looking forward to see more product suggestions based on what I talk with my friends *sarcasm”

    • Then don’t use it…

      As the other person said, just don’t use Allo. Your life will be the same without it.

        True that. Google can still do things via other channels. They can see whatever we store on the phone; gmail, gallery, etc.
