Allo Moves with Support for Android Auto and Animated Emojis

By: camillebrion

While we wait for Allo to come in one way or another to our desks, we have a couple of new features available in the Google Messaging application that strives too trying to be cool.

It is specifically from the support for Android Auto and the new animated emojis, that come accompanied as it could not be otherwise in a handful of bug fixes. Support for SMS asking so your users will have to wait a little longer.

How to send emojis animated

First of all, you must distinguish between emojis and stickers. Allo already includes long animated stickers, You can distinguish because they have a small play button included in its icon (and, obviously, because they move once you send them). Allo has a handful of packs of stickers by now.

The animated emojis are different and are used differently. You have to do is add a single emoji the conversation and slide the submit upward button to do this giant. In doing so the largest possible, the emoji becomes as if by magic in an animated emoji with the typical style of Android.

Keep in mind that not all the emojis become animated emojis. Those who do are equipped with a other distinctive in the bar to slide and resize. If it isn’t, simply they will be larger. The transformation also occurs if there is some other text or included emoji.

Support for Android Auto

Being a Google Messaging application you’d expect Google Allo had support for Android Auto… and you equivocarías. Such support has just be included in version 7.0 available on Google Play, four months after Facebook Messenger did.

From now on, you can receive notifications of messages sent to Allo while driving in Android car, send a message of “I’m driving”, listen to the messages that you send or respond using speech recognition.
