On Wednesday at the 10th annual Google I/O developer conference, Google introduced Allo and Duo, which will arrive for both Android and iOS later this summer.

It suggests automatic replies to incoming messages—even if someone sends a photo.

In addition to emojis and stickers, there is a whisper and shout feature that lets you use a slider to make text giant or tiny.

If you type @google, it will run a search query inside the app.

Anything you can find on Google.com shows up in the app, including weather, sports scores and even YouTube videos.

All chats will be encrypted, but a special incognito mode will have an end-to-end encryption, and expiring chats that are permanently deleted once you leave them.
