(CNN NEWSOURCE) Move over Facebook! Google now has its own messaging app.

Google "Allo" is now available for download.

The tech company announced it was making a so-called "smart messaging app" back in May.

"Allo" includes group messaging and the ability to add photos to your messages.

Google says the app can also learn from your conversations and suggests things for you to say.

Over time, Google Allo can even learn to mimic your speech style.

The app is available for download on Android and Apple products.

There is a one thing missing from "Allo,” the ability to make video and audio calls. But that's intentional.

Google wants users to use the app it launched in August called Duo to make video calls.
