We were all excited about Google Allo when the new AI-enhanced messenger app was announced at Google I/O. But upon its release yesterday, some clear limitations in the product were quickly noted. The app doesn’t use end-to-end encryption as Google said it would. File sharing is limited. And the personal assistant part of the app isn’t that impressive in the range of things it can do. The product lead, Justin Uberti, points out it’s just version one and it’ll get better.
And a special ???? to those who asked for a feature, but understood that Allo v1 is just that: a 1.0 product that will improve every few weeks.

@juberti Allo is terrible. Please make it not terrible.
