Downsides
Ippude kotthaga vacchindi, apude anni perfect unnaay ani cheppalem kadha. Indulo kooda konni flaws unnaay. Avento chuseddam.

Migatha apps lo laga file sharing ledhu. Pics, videos, voice messages pampochu kani documents, audio files, contacts, apps pampadaaniki ledhu. Maybe future lo add avthadi anukuntunna.

Ippudu chaala messaging apps voice calling ni support chestunnaay. Konnitlo video calling kuda untondhi. Video ki duo unna, indulo voice calling ledhu.

Edaithe Google Assistant deeniki advantage ayyindo adhe deeni weakness kuda. Ela ante, manam chese prathi conversation google server ki upload avthadi. Appude google assistant manaki suggestions ivvagaladu. Of course chala chatting apps lo idhe jarguthadi anukondi, but normal chats ki only in-app encryption thappa end-to-end encryption ledhu. So complete privacy kaavali anukunevaallu incognito lo chat cheskovadam thappa vere option ledhu and ee mode lo google assistant work cheyyadhu.

iMessage tho compare chesthe daantlo unna extra features anni levu ani maathram cheppocchu.

Chats backup chese option ledhu. Frequent ga phones change chese vaallaki problem avthundi.

 

Final Verdict
Chatting ae primary purpose ga use chese vaallaki asalu idhi chaala manchi option. And google assistant tho migatha eh app lo cheyyaleni panulu enno cheyyochu. Kaani manam ikkada chusina downsides anni next updates lo cover cheskogaligithe migatha instant messaging apps ki idhi chaala tough competition isthundi.

So Allo gurinchi mee opinion enti? Ivi kakunda inka emaina features kanipinchaya meeku? Feel free to comment.
