    I don't know. I'm a bit uncomfortable whenever Google tried to make something like this. To me it's like a middle-aged man wearing kiddie clothes and saying. "Look at me, I totally understand teenagers!".

    What's the hell?

    seems strange that this is a standalone app and not an update to Google Hangouts.

    Am I the only one who thinks it's really dangerous to let a bot suggest suitable answers for you? In the case of a cute puppy it doesn't really matter. But what is the perspective of the bot/ai/algoritm on politics?

      Don't worry, Allo is on Hillary Clinton's side.

      No, I totally agree. The more decisions we offload onto software, the more the makers of said software get to make our decisions for us. The "bigness" of problems solved in code these days requires more ethics and morality than ever – who should die in a self-driving car when on a collision-course with a biker, the person in the car or the biker? If someone receives a cute pic of a dog in a text, do we recommend an emoji or sentence as a response?

      Have you checked your eye prescription lately?

        Um, I'm very near-sighted, but my eyes are fine in this case. Not sure why you're taking a shot at my vision. When I view the app in the App Store, I see that is only available for iPhone, it's not a universal app. So when I say "iPhone only", yes, I mean there is no native iPad version. Hope that makes it clearer for you.

      If you meant, no iPad version, then I apologize.
