Allo is new on the messaging scene, but it took it by storm as it reached five million downloads in only seven days after its release in September. This is Google’s second of the new messaging applications and it just received three new features in the latest update. Allo 2.0 introduced chat themes, Smart Smiley, which predicts what emojis and stickers users might need based on the words they type, and stickers related to the upcoming “Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them” movie.
Chat themes were previously discovered in the code for Allo 2.0 and users were able to activate them with root access. Now, in the latest update, there are many themes that users can choose from, and some prefer the monochrome mode that helps users read messages well.
Smart Smiley is the other great addition, and it’s found next to the send button in chat. Users who tap on it will see a list of emojis and stickers that the application suggests based on contents of messages. For example, if users talk about food, about craving for hamburgers, the next emoji presented by Allo will be a hamburger. And this is a good thing, as only 3 percent of all available emojis are used out of 1,000 because people are too lazy to explore all of them, and they use only the most common emojis.
Also, in two days, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” movie will be released in the US. This Adventure/Family/Fantasy film follows the adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York, where he finds a secret community of witches and wizards. Without a doubt, this movie will be a hit and fans will want to use stickers with popular characters in their messages.
And finally, depending on their mood, users will pick themed backgrounds that represent them. These new features started rolling out Wednesday and they will be available worldwide in the next few days.
