Poll: are you going to be using Google's Allo?
After Google's Duo came out about a month ago, everyone was at the edge of their seats, waiting for the second chat app from the company — Allo. Well, it seems to be slowly rolling out today to the delight of users worldwide. Contrary to what the name would have you believe, Google Allo doesn't feature voice and / or video calls. No, it's just for texts, with all of its pretty extensions that spruce up your chat session, and a Google bot always ready to help you with a query.

Is Allo late to the party? The chat scene has long been overtaken by apps, such as Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Viber, Telegram, not to mention Google's own Hangouts, and many others. Indeed, the announcement of not one, but two separate apps meant for communication perplexed us a bit, and we are still curious to see if Google will manage to make them interesting enough for the majority of users to jump on to using them.

Positioned as a clear competitor to Apple's iMessage, it looks like Google really wants Allo to stick around for longer. So, we wonder, how interested are you in keeping it on your phone?
