Back at I/O 2016 event, Google has introduced the Allo and Duo applications, while Duo has found its way to public a month ago and already hit 10 million downloads in just one month, it’s Allo that is still waiting to see the light for the day. But it looks like Google is finally all set to launch the Allo app for public.
Famous tipster Evan Blass aka @evleaks has posted a twitter update claiming that Google will launch the Allo app finally this week but misses out a specific date this week, but word on the street is that September 21st will be the date. Unlike other Google apps, the Allo apps will link with user’s phone number instead of the Google account, doing so Allo will stand still in front of market biggies like iMessenger, WhatsApp, and other similar applications. The question remains unanswered until the app hits the market and how tough it can compete with those apps.
Hello, Allo (launches this week).

The question remains unanswered until the app hits the market and how tough it can compete with those apps. But, if we’re to guess, the Allo app will forge a substantial following among the users who want to try it out first. One highlighting feature of the Allo app is its capability to retrieves search results from the web when user types @google followed by the item he/she wishes to search.
Once the app becomes available for general public, we will have the app download details along with a quick review.
