Google Allo Gains GIF Search, Animated Emoji
Google improved its Allo messaging service today with more expressive tools. Allo already allows people to search for and use emoji and stickers. Now, Allo includes a tool for seeking and using GIFs within messages. The GIF search is available by swiping left on the smiley search bar. For the daring, an "@lucky" search function will search for and send a random GIF to message recipients. Google says Allo's emoji are now animated. Touching and holding one of 10 supported emoji brings it to life when sent. Last, Google Assistant is more readily accessible within Allo. Google says it is easier to bring Google Assistant into conversations for help and suggestions. The new version of Allo is available for Android devices starting today, and will reach iOS devices soon.
