Google’s communication apps Allo and Duo get new icons prior to release

Google introduced the world to two communication apps, Allo and Duo, at its recent I/O Developers Conference held in Mountain View, CA. The good news is that an official release is inching closer. Google did say ‘coming this Summer,’ which begins a few days from now. Making us believe this is a possibility is that Google refreshed the icons for the two apps early this morning.

Allo, Google’s messaging app, and Duo, the company’s video chat app, remain up for pre-register on the Play Store. However, release day may soon be upon us. Google appears to be finalizing the apps. Just today, the company swapped out the Red and Blue icons that debuted at I/O in exchange for even plainer Blue and White icons. If you look closely, Duo simply swapped its White for Blue and Blue for White. Allo on the other hand completely eliminated its Red for what Duo used to be.

We’re unsure of why Google made this design change as the company didn’t give us any information. What do you think? Are the new icons better now that they look-alike? Or did you like the old Red look for Allo? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
