Allo is a messaging app that employs Google Assistant to help out users in their conversations.

It can be used to find things quickly within a conversation, for example a restaurant when you re planning dinner.

The app also offers Smart Reply, which suggests quick message responses based on the content and context of what s being discussed.

The app is based on a user s phone number, so it is not limited to those who choose to sign up or create an account on the platform before being able to use it.

Google says the aim of Duo is to make video calling faster and more reliable, and again is based on a user s phone number, making contact with anyone in your contacts easier.

As part of the central message of openness and accessibility, both apps will be available on both iOS and Android when they launch later in the summer.
