Google’s new messaging app arrived Wednesday, and it’s jammed packed with features. I’ve been using it for nearly 3 days now, and it certainly has many pros and cons. But should you make the switch? Let’s find out.
Finally. The wait is over. After more than 4 months since Google I/O back in May, easily one of the most anticipated apps this year has launched. Google Allo is here.
With the release of Allo supposedly coming tomorrow, there’s been yet another leak of Google’s latest messaging app. This time, it’s the marketing.
It’s official! Google has now confirmed and sent out invitations to it’s October 4th product launch event in San Francisco. They’ve also created a website titled madeby.google.com, directly hinting that the new phones will be “made be Google” (despite the fact that previous leaks have stated they’re manufactured by HTC).
Rumors have already been floating around on the web on the pricing of the upcoming Pixel phones and a possible leak in a Nest ad has been revealed. And now actual photos of the phone have been leaked.
Over on Google+, Vinoth Ragunathan posted that he believes, from a trusted source, that Allo will launch on September 21 with SMS support.

Back at Google I/O in May, Google announced two new messaging applications, Allo and Duo. As I’m sure you know, Duo has been released to the public for about a month now, while Allo, initially bound for a summer release, has been silent.
