Today Google updated their Allo messaging app with some new features that adds support for not only Android Auto but also animated emoji.
Android Auto is probably the most interesting of the two updates, allowing you to receive messaging notifications without the need for your hands while driving.
Before the update, when you receive an Allo message, the notification would disappear behind the main interface, however, with today’s interface, you will finally be able to interact with those messages, hands-free.
