GOOGLE TO LAUNCH ALLO AND DUO
Google has announced two new messaging apps, Allo and Duo. The Allo app, based on your phone number, has been designed to take on WhatsApp. One of the main highlights of the Allo app is its ‘WhisperShout’ feature which lets you change the size of the text according to the tone you use. Duo is a video calling app. One of its features, called ‘Knock Knock’, shows you a live video preview of the caller before you pick up the phone. These apps will be launched sometime this year. Users will have to pre-register to download these apps whenever Google launches them. You can pre-register on the Play Store right away. Google will notify you when the apps are available for download.
