The importance of social media in our life is increasing with every passing day. The social media app developers are updating their existing apps and are also developing new apps to cope with diverse demands of the customers. These developments bring new features to the apps making these more useful. Google is also one of the famous social media app developers which keep its apps updated.
Recently Google has pushed a major update version 9.0 to its messaging app Allo. This update will fix many bugs and will bring improvements in its functioning. The update has also given a clue to the development of a web client for this app. Google’s Vice President of Communications also gave a hint about the development of web client functionality two weeks ago.
Allo, after updating to the version 9.0 will work exactly like WhatsApp web. It means that now we have an option to pair our device with any web client through scanning QR code. Text codes method to pair the device will also be available.
Still, the facility of standalone web client will not be available. WhatsApp is already missing it. Allo web client will have the same limitations like WhatsApp web client. The devices should be close to each other and an active data connection would be needed on both these devices to connect.
In this entire scenario, it is hoped that Google is preparing to launch its web client facility across the world soon. Moreover, the codes in this version make it clear that it is going to bring many new features as backups for chats and media contents to either the Google drive or to external memory card.
The code also points towards its quick selfie feature. It means that a small camera would open to take and send a selfie during the chat. These incognito chats are now available for individuals. These will be launched for groups very soon.
