What messaging app do you need?
Messaging apps are just too many these days. Despite many messaging apps, Google has yet to add one – The Google Allo. What happened to Google Talk, Google Voice, Google Now, and of course Hangouts? Do we need that much messaging app?
The release of Google Allo on Wednesday seems to have exhausted many technologists. This app is not new. It is just a revision of what is already there. Consider Apple’s iMessage, Facebook’s WhatsApp, Yahoo’s Messenger, Viber, and a whole lot more.

What is Google Allo?
Google Allo is newest messaging app that features a virtual assistant like Siri to iPhones and end to end encryption tool that is by default provided to iPhone users. WhatsApp has it by default for its user’s privacy protection too. Although Google Allo has the encryption tool not by default but by choice, even so, it still offers the same capabilities with what Apple and Facebook messaging app has to offer.
What is end to end encryption tool?
End to end encryption is a strong encryption tool that will make it hard for law enforcement officers to access messages for purposes of investigation. To make it simple, it is a protective tool that is impenetrable. Thus, the users’ privacy is protected to the highest level. It is security at its best!
With so much messaging applications introduced today, users may find it difficult to choose which works for them best. However, the fact is, technology users want to keep it simple and accessible and that is what’s most important.
