Google's New Messaging App Is So Useful I Don't Care That It's Creepy. I just downloaded, and have started using, the new messaging app from Google, Allo. Very cool. It learns my habits, knows where I am, knows what I am doing, and tailors my contacts to all that it knows. Having been married for some time, I already understand what that is like; so, the total surrender to an all knowing friend is nothing new to me. But, for those who value their privacy, Allo is the ultimate invasion. But, hey, this thing is really cool. It will even finish your texts for you before you type them. And, talking to Google Assistant is like talking to your wife. It knows everything before you do, and it is always right.
