Renowned tipster, Evan Blass posted on Twitter claiming that Google will be launching its Allo app this week. Allo also provides end-to-end encryption, GIF support and Snapchatesque ability to destroy sent messages, but the best thing about this app is that it only requires your phone number to identify you.

Even more interesting, however, are Allo’s AI-powered features. For example, if you receive an invite to a party on Saturday night, an automatic prompt of “I’m in” will pop up and all you have to do is just tap on it.

Is Google Allo coming out this week? Google assistant, an evolved version of Google Now will be integrated with the messenger as well. It also works in conversations with other people, where it can pepper your messages with things like search results for restaurants when you’re talking about getting dinner.
