Google Allo brings backup/restore options and group incognito mode


Google Allo has recently surpassed the 50 million download threshold, and the folks at the big “G” have released a new update for the application. The update adds a few new features that may be important to you, provided that you’re still using Allo.

The biggest addition to Allo is the ability to backup and restore your various conversations within the app. This will make life much easier if you’re getting a new device and want to keep your conversation history.

Another addition to Allo is the inclusion of group incognito mode, which will bring you and your friends the ability to have a quick chat that disappears after a pre-set period time. This could come in handy if you’re trying to make plans for the night and don’t want to clog up your conversation list.

Finally, Google has added the ability to preview rich URL links in chat giving you the ability to view links before clicking through. Allo was just updated today, but these changes aren’t on the official changelog. Instead, Allo’s head Amit Fulay has stated these changes are on the server side, so you’ll just have to wait until you see the options on your device.
