Do we really need another messaging app?

This kind of question has no correct answer. The problem is we already have tons of messaging app available to use. On the other hand, I use WhatsApp a lot. Both for personal and professional use.

Yesterday, I got a notification on my phone saying that Google Allo was available to download. Like most people in the world, I ignored it. Later, on the evening, after I went cycling, I received messages from Google Allo. Apperantly, someone inivited me in a group on Google Allo and automatically I could read all the messages.

What the hell? That was the first reaction when I saw all theses messages. I remembered when Edward Snowden said people must avoid this app at all cost. That was the first thing I did when I saw the invitation from Google. But, what happen if you already got messages from this app?

Then, I decided to install the app. And I don't like it.
