Audio quality is terrible. My friend sounds like she is in a hurricane. The app hasn't got a prayer trying to dictate such a static and garbled mess since I can't even tell what she's saying in the recording. I apparently sound almost as bad. Using Allo our recordings are clear and crisp so it's not our phones or environments.
Love the App very cool idea and next gen thinking from Google. Small things to improve on but pretty great besides that, consider making it as a part of the google keyboard or a setting for voice to text for the keyboard.
The major design flaw is that the "speaker" button doesn't work. I can't get it to stop playing over the speaker. So I can't use it in public or work if I want privacy
Crazy buggy fun. Voice transcription to icons is very silly, can I tune it? Message deletion is buggy.
I think this is cool. It's way better than the rest of Google's crappy messaging apps.
UPDATE: Found that I can only sign up & use this with cellular data, not wifi. Why? That makes this FAR less handy for me.
Initial release! 🎉🎊
