Google Allo update adding backups, incognito mode for groups, and more


Google Allo is receiving an update that adds some oft-requested features to the mix. Unfortunately, those features aren’t a desktop application or SMS integration.

Amit Fulay, Head of Product for Google Allo, Duo, and WebRTC, tweeted out today that chat backup and restore is being added to Allo. In addition, Allo will also support the ability to launch an incognito mode for group chats. And finally, Allo will support link previews, a feature that has surfaced in other messaging apps, so its inclusion here isn’t too surprising.

At the time of publication, the update for Allo hasn’t arrived, so the features aren’t available just yet, but it should be arriving soon.

What do you think of the new additions? Is Allo your go-to messaging app?
