Google Allo for Web Rolls Out for Android Only

16 August 2017

Starting from today, you can officially use Allo on your computer from the Chrome browser.

Allo's availability on the web has been one of the messaging app's most requested features, so it's good it has finally arrived.

This isn't the first time we've seen Allo's desktop version, though.

We've actually been expecting this since last February when Nick Fox, Google's VP for Communications teased us with a photo that they're working on it. The tweet reads, "Allo for web is here!"

The schedule sounds about right.

As of now, the web version works only for Android users. The two are connected in a similar manner in which WhatsApp for Android and WhatsApp for desktops are, requiring users to scan a QR code rendered by the browser client with their mobile app before being allowed to use the service. To get started, visit Allo for web in your Chome browser, where you'll be greeted with a QR code. So unlike a Gmail app which can be accessed by simply typing the username and password, Allo for web is still linked to the smartphone app. With that said, something like a web client and multi-device syncing could make for a difference in getting you and I to take it for a serious spin after this year since it launched.

Google describes Allo as a messaging app for Android and iPhone users. Allo is also based on your phone number, so you can use it to send text messages to anyone in your phonebook - not just other Allo users.

Google has recently rolled out the web version of its successful mobile chat application, Allo.

The user interface is simple enough. As the site explains, Allo "learns if you're more of a "haha" or "lol" person so the more you use Allo, the more "you" the suggestions become". The messaging app, which lets you chat with your friends and foes, retain most of the features on its web client which is available on the mobile app.
