Google Allo May Launch This Week

According to a prolific leaker, Google’s attempt at yet another messaging app is releasing this week. Duo, the company’s video app, was released over a month ago, so it’s about time that counterpart Allo reared its head. I just hope it doesn’t crash as much as Hangouts does for me.

Google Duo and Allo, the company's latest messaging applications, were announced back at Google I/O this year. Only Duo has been released to the public, and as I'm sure you all know, Google has been silent about the release date for Allo apart from a summer release. With the first day of fall coming on September 22, time is running out to meet the deadline. Evan Blass, more famously known as @evleaks on Twitter, posted a tweet saying only "Hello, Allo (launches this week)." That's it. No other details, or a more specific release date. Rumors from other sources suggest September 21, but we are taking them with a grain of salt.
