Allo developer hints at SMS support, other highly-requested features possibly coming to the app
Co-lead for Allo, Justin Uberti, has posted a list of highly-requested features for Google's new messaging app on his Twitter page. Ending the short publication with “That's all I can say (zipper-mouth emoji),” it wouldn't be too far-fetched to assume that Mr. Uberti is probably not just tweeting this at random with the intent of informing us what customers of Allo want the most, but rather to hint at what's coming in the near future.
