Anyone use Google Allo? I was under the impression that it could send SMS but I am not having too much luck with it. How does this app fit in with Hangouts?
<p>I use Allo, but with a smaller number of people, because most of the people who I chat with still use Hangouts, Facebook, or Viber. Some use, WhatsApp, and very very little use Skype.</p><p>The main purpose for Allo was to incorporate the Assistant to it. All that stuff Skype is doing now, …. they got that from Allo. Everything that I see from Skype, I saw it with Allo months before. Allo was also created to create a new messaging standard, RCS. Google is trying to do away with SMS because of it's limited functionality, like 160 characters. Last I read of this, Google is being Google by working with providers to do away with SMS and make RCS the standard. Google will probably be successful being that Android is immensley popular world wide and when it comes to working with partners, Google clearly knows their s**t.</p><p><br></p>
