Allo made a bit of a splash when it launched but unfortunately due to some lacking functionality it hasn’t become a regular use app for many. The update that is currently rolling out to users, confirmed by Google Head of Product for Allo and Duo; Amit Fulay, is addressing some of the lacking functionality and hopefully more isn’t too far off in the distance.

Having updated a short time ago, the backup functionality is as you’d expect. It utilises your Google account and backs up to Google Drive (Duh, Google Product!) while offering choice on frequency of back up and the method (wifi vs mobile data).
If nothing else, it’s certainly a step in the right direction to make Google’s Allo a regular use app for users. Keep your ears to the ground for further updates in the not-too distant future.
What function additions would get you using Allo regularly?
