Google rolled out its big version 2.0 update to Google Allo just a few days ago, and with it came a number of new features like support for multi-window and direct reply from the notification shade. It also included a “Monochrome” theme in the settings menu, where you opt to make the app a tad more monochrome than before. Oddly enough, the default chat interface in Allo is already mostly monochrome, so this new option isn’t all that useful right now.
Apparently that Monochrome theme will start making more sense in future versions of Allo, according to the folks at 9to5Google. The messaging app will soon begin to support a variety of colorful themes. The screenshots below, obtained by 9to5Google, show a handful of different themes that will be present in a future version of Allo.
The report notes that Allo will suggest you pick a theme every time you create a new chat, though you will be able to change it from the settings menu at any time. There aren’t any details as to when Google will flip the switch on these colorful new themes, but we’ll be sure to let you know when it does.
