Google at its I/O 2016 conference in May unveiled Allo, a new messaging app along with Duo, today, the company has started rolling out the app globally for Android and iOS. The Allo is here to take on world's most popular messaging app Whatsapp. Unlike other Google products, users are given the option to sign up using their phone numbers only. For those who want to be more on the safe side, Google ID can also be use for signing up via an option presented in the welcoming screen.

So, what does Allo have to offer? The first thing an user is likely to be drawn to when composing his/her first message are the colorful arts. Google filled Allo to the brim with different emojis and stickers to make conversation more of a fun and to make people "fully" able to express themselves without writing a word. In addition, Allo allows users to import picture from gallery and even do some artwork by painting on it before it is sent.
