You can now react to individual messages in Google Allo

The latest update for the Google Allo borrows a feature that’s been around for a while in Facebook Messenger: you can now “react” to individual messages with a simple tap.

The new feature was confirmed by Google’s Allo and Duo leader Amit Fulay today via Twitter:

With the latest update, you should see a heart icon next to each message bubble, which you can tap to react. The number of people who have reacted is also shown as a badge. For now, it looks like “love” is the only option there, but the search giant will no doubt add more in the coming months. Along with this, v14 should bring under-the-hood enhancements like the ability zoom and blur messages according to the Twitter conversation on Fulay’s post.

The Allo update just started rolling out, so it may take a few days for it to reach your device. Let us know what do you think of this new feature in the comments!

Users can backup and restore texts, as well as any image or video that was used in chats. Additionally, the latest Allo update adds a link preview to any URLs that are put in chats, which will allow you to see what the link is all about before you decide to click on it.
