Google Allo's latest update brings support for Android Auto, animated emoji
After the update, upon receiving an Allo notification, it will be displayed on the screen as well as read out loud, rather than be hidden behind the app's interface, as was the case until now. Users can now also dictate a message to reply with, or automatically send a prewritten response.
Apart from that, the new version of Allo also adds animated emoji (which are thankfully optional), as well as some of the regular bug fixes. While this update isn't as exciting, it's a welcome addition for a subset of its users. The app is also one of Google's more regularly-updated ones, and often serves as a testbed for new features: Google Assistant, for example, made its debut within the app, and the service is also expected to land on desktop soon.
