Google Allo update adds Selfie Clips, so you can capture your own personal GIF

Google's Allo application has just received a new update that's not detailed in the Google Play Store. Luckily, Allo's Head of Product, Amit Fulay revealed some of the new features that Android users will be able to take advantage of after updating to the latest version.

As the title says, the most important change is the addition of Selfie Clips, a new feature that allows Google Allo users to capture and share their own personal GIF much easier.

Also, the Android version of Google Allo is getting a redesigned compose bar, as the developers are experimenting with new methods to helps users share things faster than ever.

Lastly, some of you might remember that Google pushed a small but significant update to the Android app about two weeks ago, which added Selfie Stickers.

Well, it appears that the new feature is now available to iOS users as well, so if you're running Allo on your Apple smartphone, then you can now go ahead and create your own custom pack via sticker gallery.
