We are in the year 2016 and that is apparently synonymous with that all applications want to a lesser or greater extent be Snapchat. We have already seen it on the side of Facebook, Messenger and Instagram, and from the East they do not want to be less as we have seen in the case of Egg LINE.
LINE is updated to version 6.8.0 in Android and features two very typical snapchateras: publications in the Timeline (the mini integrated social network) that expire automatically and the real time effects in the camera. Continue reading
Now that Duo we have among us, we only need let us with the other messaging application that Google promised us in the last Google I/O: Google Allo. This application not yet available, Although we have already heard several things about it: incognito mode and self-destructing messages, erase history, stickers, encryption…
The main point in which Allo will try to differentiate themselves from other messaging or WhatsApp Messenger application is included the wizard: a “bot” know-it-all from Google that is involved in the conversation to answer almost any question you throw him. Until now we knew that you could talk to the wizard through private message or by mentioning it in a conversation, but now we know something more: can also send you a voice clip. Continue reading

Facebook Messenger is an application that or you love or hate, but regardless of that admittedly has some other good ideas. My favorite are the chat bubbles, a system whereby notifications of new messages are displayed in floating bubbles that you can expand and use to reply to messages while you’re in another application.
Several applications have borrowed this idea, as it is the case of Chromer or Link Bubble, but Department of other messaging application no one has dared to include a similar function. There it enters Flychat, an application for grant floating functions Messaging applications. Continue reading
Google Allo takes already one week with us and it has garnered more than one million downloads. It is not much to come where it comes, although it is not little. The application is still very green, that is undeniable, although it must be recognized that it has some other good ideas including.
The problem – or not-good ideas is that frequently comes another and copy them yourself, blurring the motives by which someone should use your application if the other already had done the same.

In its early days Telegram had few or no qualms in making a nearly perfect copy of WhatsApp with some twist. After the initial push and the relative passivity of WhatsApp to include improvements, the apprentice seemed to have passed the master and arguably that was WhatsApp which was more inspired by Telegram, and not the other way around.
Not in vain, in 2014, Pavel Durov, the CEO of Telegram published an article in Medium called the best way to predict WhatsApp features. I’ll save the reading, which on the other hand is quite interesting because it made predictions that you can check if is cumpieron or not, but the main idea was that WhatsApp couldn’t stop copying -late, that if – what is proved that it worked in Telegram.

Two of Google’s year, Allo, and Duo communication applications, are now available for download. One simplifies video calling and the other makes use of the Google Wizard for enhance your conversations with the “mind” of Google.
However, something wrong with the whole thing. Google Duo does not allow you to send any kind of message text your contacts, and Google Allo does not allow you to make calls or video calls.
