Google is rolling out new app update for its Allo chat client. Google has packed in some new refinements in the latest build of the Google Allo. As per the changelog, Google has added the adaptive icon support for the AI based Chat client. Further, they have extended the support for in-chat translations.
There are further many other changes and fixes that Google has poured into the latest build. The major advancements that we have received from the new update is the translation option which is currently limited to group chats only. Currently, the translation service is not effective for the one-on-one chats.
Similarly, the Adaptive icons feature is limited to only Android 8.0 Oreo users. It is a welcome move for Allo as it is now a standard for App developers to use adaptive icons. In the latest and greatest, Android 8.0 Oreo has added new feature to customise the shapes of icons. By default, it gives a customisation ability to change icon’s shape into the four different shapes – square, rounded square, squircle, or teardrop.
