Google’s new app ALLO raises privacy concerns

Google’s new app ALLO is a competitor to facebook’s WhatsApp – but has an added advantage that it can listen to your conversations and suggest important things to you, based on what your are speaking about.

On surface it is great – for example if somebody is speaking about going to New York city – he should be alerted that in New york city turning right on Red light is not allowed, unlike other US cities.

However, it has raised concerns that the voice conversations would be recorded and could be accessed by government or hackers.

    App like this would mean – no need of calling your friends and taking their advise – the app tells you all.
