The way of using social media is changing with the rise of messaging and video chatting apps.
At this week’s Google I/O conference, the company introduced new tools for app developers that will allow them to create applications that customize themselves to a user’s current context.
Good news from Google I/O 2016 for Android users, Google announced a new messaging application, Allo and a new video messaging app, Duo at Google I/O on May 18, 2016.
Both of these applications are based on the user’s phone number and are focused on providing more information to users, as they are typing or about to pick up the phone.
No. Google confirmed that the company will invest in Hangouts and keep it a separate product. It does make sense, as Allo needs a phone number that aimed to be an app like WhatsApp competitor while Hangouts competes with a Facebook Messenger.
Would it not be better to have one singular product that focused on messaging? Don’t forget Google has the SMS Messenger app on Android.
Make your conversation easier and expressive than before with Allo, a smart messaging application. Based on your phone number, users can easily get touch with anyone in their phonebook.
The best example of Android application development, Allo integrated with a collection of smart features that keep user’s conversation flowing and help you to get things done.

Allo has Smart Reply similar to Inbox, so users can respond to messages without typing. Smart Reply shows suggestions to the users in your style. The more you use this android application, the more “you” get the suggestions. Smart Reply works with photos that provide intelligent suggestions related to the photo’s content.
For example – When you are sending a photo of tacos to your friends, you may see Smart Reply suggestions as “I love tacos” or “yummy”.
The Google assistant is also featured by Allo that brings the richness of Google directly into the chats to provide information. Users can chat one-on-one with the assistant and call on Google in the group chat with friends.
With Allo app, users can do things like getting up-to-date sports scores, book a dinner reservation with friends, settle a bet, or play a game. Assistance in Allo enables to bring things like YouTube, Translate, Search, and Maps along with the conversation so users and their friends can use Google together.
Even, users can ask things like agenda of the day, photos from the last trip, details of the flight and hotel, etc. And since this application understands natural language patterns, users can chat by their own like “Is my hotel booked?” and you will the answer by your hotel booking status.
A messaging application should be secured and thus, they have created Incognito mode in Allo. Chat with friends in Incognito mode will have end-to-end encryption and discreet notifications and Google soon will update the latest features.
Duo is one-to-one video calling app for every people, who are residing in India or have fast or slow internet connection . Duo also based on the phone number that allows reaching anyone in your phonebook. And its simple interface fades away when you are in a call.
Knock Knock feature of Duo displays a live video preview of the caller before you pick up. Knock Knock gives an invitation to the users into the moment and makes calls feel spontaneous. Once you picked the call, Duo flawlessly transitions right into the call.
Duo calls are in crisp HD video (up to 720p) and audio. However, Google has optimized Duo to work well on the spotty networks. So, when bandwidth is limited, it gracefully adjusts quality. Android app for video calling transition calls between cellular and Wi-Fi, thus, users don’t have to worry about the network.
All calls on Duo are end-to-end encrypted, as it is developed by considering privacy and security in mind. Developed by the WebRTC team, this video calling application uses a new protocol called “Quic.” Duo “proactively monitors the connection and degrades performance and can switch from Wi-Fi to cellular.”
Messaging and video calling are one of the few things that people do more than social networking. When you take a look at the data, you can see why people are thinking to develop a messaging application for Android.
As per the latest report from TechCrunch that is live at F8 (Facebook 8), “People will soon experience group video calling in WhatsApp, and adding a number of stickers as well”.
Messaging apps are more private than social media and thus, most of our clients are thinking to develop chat application. As Android operating system has multiple versions and a huge number of screen resolutions, our android app developers create an app that compatible with every version and device.
We “make a customer, not a sale” and thus, we have a huge client base, who trusted us as one of the best android app development company. We have developed several top-ranking Android apps, one of them is Tuloko.
