Allo developer hints at SMS support, other highly-requested features possibly coming to the app

Knowing Google, we were not all that surprised, albeit generally disappointed, by Allo's limited functionality at launch. It is nothing out of the ordinary for the Big G to launch a service in beta-like status and improve on it with time, and we'd be willing to bet that all these features Mr. Uberti tweeted about, if not more, will be coming to Allo in the following months. Here is the tweet in question:
No word on improved security though.

All the requested features in one app sounds great. But who the hell uses carrier SMS these days?

80% SMS (inc iMessage), 18% Facebook messenger, 1% Whatsapp and 1% other in Australia. It's interesting that US and Australia are using so much SMS and barely any Whatsapp compared to other countries. I've tried to get people to use Whatsapp but none of my friends are keen on it

file sharing a must - duo integration with voice only - assistant in other languages (english is not native for a, let's say, majority of this planet) - and desktop integration. themes is just cosmetics, not features that change how it works.

All those features should've been there from day one.
