HEY GOOGLE, MAKE ALLO YOUR MAIN MESSENGER!

I really love Google. My Pixel phone has been great for a good year and a half and I’m really looking forward to the Pixel 3. Google has a badass hardware line and it’s only getting better as we progress forward.

One thing that has been bothering me for quite some time is Google’s messaging apps. They have Hangouts, Android Messages, and Google Allo. Out of the 3 Google Allo seems very promising but after reading about how Allo fell from the top 500 apps list in their very own Play Store, it made me question what in the hell Google is doing.

Google Allo in my opinion is the better of the apps with its smart AI features and elegant design. Just like Apples messenger you can message people from your computer (even though is browser based) and has all the fun filled emojis, stickers, gifs, and smart reply features. What’s really confusing is that Google has implemented these same features in their Android Messages app which makes no sense at all. Why not just take Android Messages out of the picture and make Allo the main texting app on the Pixel phone?

If Google wants to be a fierce competitor to Apple, they need to make Allo the main app of which users communicate through instead of bombarding us with several different messaging apps. Facebook messenger and Whatsapp pretty much have that area on lock. I just really want to have that cool as experience that I had with iPhone but on my Pixel but Google can’t make their minds up.

Hey Google, just do what Apple did!

For anyone who owns an Android device, you may or may not have heard about Google Allo. Google Allo is a smart messaging app that is practically like iMessage, WhatsApp, and Kik. The only difference with Allo is the taste of Android. Whether you have used it or not, there really isn’t much dazzle to it. I mean hell, the only awesome feature I found was the Google AI integration. Other than that, it’s just a knock off of what other tech companies have to offer.

In all honestly, the App is clean shaven and runs flawless. I recently purchased a Google Pixel and ever since going back I don’t think I want to return to iPhone. (lol I’m just kidding) Seriously though, Google Allo has been gaining slow momentum. The app recently reached 10 million installs after its first 3 months out but why should we really be concerned with that? Why doesn’t Google just take the route that Apple did and have the app pre-installed and set as the preferred texting app instead of that messenger crap. I get that shit confused with facebook messenger a lot which screws me up everytime I share something and I get the display of apps to choose from.

The fact of the matter is, if Google really wanted to take Allo to new heights, they should make it the prefered texting app on all android devices. Going back to Apple; they created iMessage and made a universal messenger that developed a secret community among iPhone users while categorizing everyone else as SMS. I strongly suggest that Google should take this approach. I mean hell, if you’re gonna copy the “familiarity of an iPhone” with the Google Pixel, at least try some of Apple’s other ideas.
