All jokes aside, Allo is actually a nice app, just one that is missing some big features. Earlier this year, we received some news that Google’s controversial messaging app, Allo, would be getting a desktop client sometime in the future—when, we did not know. But starting today, that change is finally here and here’s what the process is like.
Update 8/14: Congrats to Chrissy M. on winning the giveaway, and a big thanks to all for participating.
One of our biggest issues with Google is that they perform so many A/B/C … /Z testing these days. It seems that everyone has a new feature. One such new feature is popping up on our devices. When typing in Gboard in Google Assistant, it no longer shows you word suggestions.
We’re already about a week into August and Google’s rolling out new Android builds to its devices. If you don’t want to wait for the OTA to hit you, we’ve rounded up the links/build numbers for you.
Last Friday, VentureBeat leaked the first photos of the Pixel 2. They also confirmed front-facing speakers, large bezels, and no headphone jack. Below is that image:

The last Android O developer preview dropped in early June. That was Dev Preview 3. And here we are, nearly two months later, and the Android team has gone ahead and dropped Dev Preview 4.
Google Duo has certainly received less criticism than that of its sister-app, Allo. Of course, it’s not battling issues like “SMS fallback” and whatnot, and it’s still not perfect, but more or less, it’s definitely a solid app, and today, Google’s video calling application has crossed another milestone today—100 million downloads on the Play Store.
Fall is coming and several smartphone flagships have yet to be revealed. Of course, there has been rumor after rumor, but today, I wanted to ask you what would be your top choice for an upcoming smartphone? Also, feel free to comment what price point you think they should be set at and what features you feel it should include. The poll is embedded below.
Courtesy of the folks over at Android Police, the image you see above is what is believed to be a highly accurate representation of Google’s next-generation flagship smartphone, the 2017 Pixel “XL.” This will be the codenamed “taimen” device.
