How To Share Files and Documents Through Google Allo




There are still millions of people who still make use of Google Allo to chat with friends and colleagues and Google keeps releasing new updates once in a while as opposed to many peoples mindset that Allo has gone into extinction.

According to rumors, Google set to add Stickers to Allo, but that isn't the main point here. The uplifting news now is that, Google has made it possible for users to Share files through Allo.

Supported file formats are: .pdf, .doc, .apk, .zip, and .mp3. Isn't this a welcome development on Allo? Ofcourse it is. Though, Whatsapp already has this feature of Sharing files (PDF and TXT only) with contacts, but Facebook Messenger is yet to adopt this feature.

I will quickly guide you on how you can send/share files and documents on Google Allo. It's very simple and needs no much explanation. Kindly follow me along.

==> To share files on Allo, just use the new paper clip icon seen above, while you're in any Allo conversation.

==> Tapping that will take you to your device's file explorer, where you can select what you want to share. The odd thing is that you can't share Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets if you've saved them in their default format. So for now you need to either save those in Microsoft's formats, or just send people a link to the file on Google Drive.

And now let's dive into the sticker-adjacent news. Smart Smiley is rolling out in Brazilian Portuguese, so if you speak that language you will be able to take advantage of this feature that uses machine learning to help you find the right emoji faster.

Just tap the Smart Smiley icon on the compose bar and the app will instantly suggest relevant emojis and, yes, you guessed it, stickers. No new sticker packs this time around though.
