Google has unveiled Allo, a new messaging app that uses artificial intelligence to pre-generate not just words, but entire responses for you.

Unveiled at the Google I/O 2016 developer conference, Allo is the company s first major attempt to take on the likes of WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and iMessage.

Think of it as Google s version of Siri, but rather than needing to know certain phrases you can actually talk to Assistant like you would a normal person.

If you re trying to find somewhere for dinner you can bring Assistant into the conversation, asking it questions about where s best to go, and then even ask it to book a table for you.
