You have now had a week to adopt Allo and implement it into your daily life, but have you? On a personal level, while I admit the app is cool, it simply does not offer me enough to kick the habit of Hangouts and standard text messaging. Maybe if a desktop client was made available and there were a few features I couldn’t live without, I could see myself continuing to use it. Not only that, but attempting to get all of my friends and family onto Allo just doesn’t seem all that appealing.
As Googlers on social media have made clear, what we see today is only the beginning. Google will continue to change Allo and add features; features that we hope will draw us into using it more. Until then, Allo isn’t for me.
Let us know why you are or are not continuing to use Google’s new messaging service.
