Allo is Google's instant messaging app, which allows countries that don't have the Google Assistant yet to actually access it through the app. Today, a new version of Allo was launched in which you can directly launch a Google Duo voice or video call through the messenger app.
At Google I/O 2016, it was announced that Google Allo and Google Duo would be integrated - and that day has finally arrived. The news came via Twitter from Allo and Duo's Product Director at Google, Amit Fulay,
So from now on, you can start a call in Duo directly from an Allo chat. This is not the first time that Google has tried to encourage the use of the Google Duo; recently, Motorola got on board the app via software update, as we saw in the recent update of the Moto Z Play and Moto G4 Play.
In addition to integration with Duo, Google Allo brings the addition of stickers to photos shared within the app. There have also been bug fixes and performance improvements, generally improving the user experience on the app.
This update is accessible as of today through the Play Store and we hope all users will receive it within the next few days.
How to get the latest version of Google Allo
The new version of Google Allo will be officially dispatched through the Google Play Store. However, if you can't wait for that, you can already install the update from the APK of the application through APK Mirror.
To do so, you must allow the installation of applications from unknown sources. Go to Settings -> Security -> (enable the option) Unknown sources.
