Google Allo racks up over 1M Google Play downloads in less than a week

Google’s new artificial intelligence (AI)-powered messaging app Google Allo has apparently notched up more than 1 million Google Play downloads in less than one week of its availability.

According to the figures shared on the Play Store page of the Google Allo app, the installations of the app is already between 1 and 5 million, though the precise figure is not yet available. The app has also managed to grab the top rankings on the free apps chart.

The 1 million downloads witnessed by Google Allo app in less than a week marks an impressive feat by the app, especially against the backdrop of the fact that the app has stirred mixed reactions as well as some privacy concerns.

The Google Allo app’s privacy-related controversy was triggered by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden who strongly advised users to avoid using Allo unless they want a messaging app with Google surveillance on the side.

Nonetheless, despite the privacy concerns raised with Google Allo, the AI-powered app still managed to rack up more than 1 million Google Play downloads in less than seven days because it integrates Google Assistant, and unfolds several powerful features which pave the way for a much smarter and more convenient way of interaction with Google.
