Google Allo v14 gets message reactions, under-the-hood augmentations

siliconreview Google Allo v14 gets message reactions, under-the-hood augmentations

While the users still wait for the much-delayed Web client of Google Allo, the version 14 of the messaging app has now began undulating out for Android and fetch message reply to the platform. Presently, the newest update is not showing up for us but it is soon predictable to be rolled out by the search giant in phases to the users.

Currently, just like on Facebook Messenger, users can bestow emoji reactions to particular messages within the chat and once there are multiple reactions, the add up of the reactions begin showing up next to the message. Amit Fulay, head of Google Allo, announced the new feature in his tweet saying, "Latest #GoogleAllo version out today! You can react to messages in chat (tap the heart to like them)"

Particularly, dissimilar to Facebook Messenger, Allo users can as of now just respond to messages with a heart-shaped emoji. Fulay has recommended that there are more "under-the-hood enhancements" that comes with the recent update but in order to figure it out, users just have to remain to figure out other prominent additions. For now, there is no update when updated app will hit iOS.

To remind, Google in last May said that the Web client of the Allo app will be released in a month or two but recently clarified that it will take "few more weeks" to be made available. Nick Fox, VP, Communications Products at Google, said in a tweet in May: "I'm using Web client every day and loving it. Team is working hard to get it out ASAP [As Soon As Possible], but we're still a month or two from public release.
