Latest Google Allo update testing edit button for images in chat


Even though there are not a lot of active users for Allo as much as there are for other messaging apps like Whatsapp and Facebook Messenger, Google constantly updates the app with new features.

Following the addition of quick selfie effects in the previous update, Allo now gets an edit button on the top right corner of shared images and stickers from within the app. While the edit button appears on all images, only a few stickers get it.

You can also access this feature by long pressing the intended image and then selecting the share to Allo option from the menu. However using the edit button is much quicker and seems practical.
