Google Allo to finally launch this week17
Unfortunately, Blass' utterances are quite vague on this occasion, with no specific date mentioned. Word on the street is that Allo could arrive on Wednesday 21st September. Either way, it doesn't seem we'll have to wait much longer to see if the Big G can make an impression on the crowded instant-messaging market.
Hello, Allo (launches this week).— Evan Blass (@evleaks) September 18, 2016
As well as being closely intertwined with the aforementioned Duo app, Google Allo will link to a person's phone number as opposed to their Google account. This places it in direct competition with the likes of iMessage and WhatsApp along with many others. Whether the market's already too crowded for Allo to forge a substantial following, we'll have to wait and see. But Google being Google, plenty will surely rush to test it out once it does take its long-awaited bow.
Whenever Allo does become available for download we'll have the details covered here, so stay tuned.
