Google Allo includes an amazing incognito chat mode so that you can chat to anyone in private chat mode. In incognito chat mode there is a feature of self-destructing times, discreet notifications. In this mode the messages send in the chat are end-to-end encrypted and private message.In Incognito chat mode you can set the time for chat expiration after that time period chat will be automatically deleted. Whatsapp has not Incognito chat mode so Allo has another positive point.
