Allo v5.0 Introduces Custom Chrome Tabs






Google's Allo app received an update in November introducing emoji suggestions and chat
themes. In December, Google introduced a Hindi Assistant just for Indian users, and even
announced that the most number of Allo users were from India. Now, the company has
unveiled Allo 5.0 version bringing in Chrome Custom Tabs. This is the only notable change
seen with the new version; however a teardown of its APK has unveiled a few potentially
upcoming features as well.
The addition of Chrome Custom Tabs means that the app will now allow you to view
webpages without leaving the app. Once you update to v5.0, this feature gets enabled
by default, but if you wish to use a specific browser, you could toggle this feature off in
the Settings menu.
Apart from this, Android Police performed an APK teardown to find some hidden features
that may have been rolled out only to a specific audience, or may come in the future.
Some of the features found in the teardown include personalised sticker packs for selfies.
 This means that when a user takes a selfie through the Allo camera, the app will throw
 personalised selfie packs based on the likeness.

Apart from this, Allo app will also allow you to generate your own stickers. Once you
create these stickers, you will be asked for feedback for more quality improvement.
Just to reiterate, these features aren't live yet, even in the new version, and may or
may not roll out commercially in the future.
The addition of Chrome Custom Tabs seems to be exclusive to the Android app, and
 even though the iPhone app has been updated to version 5.0 recently, its changelog
only shows performance improvements.
