Allo for Web Launch Sure Seems Imminent

Allo for Web Launch Sure Seems Imminent (UPDATED: LIVE!)

Google's inability to add missing areas back at a timely rate hasn't helped the matter but today the company finally launched the first version of a web client.

It should be noted that this is not a standalone web portal for the Allow messaging service (like we saw with Hangouts). That's a fairly large pile of restrictions, so the Allo web app may not be worth pursuing for a lot of Allo users, at least not yet.

Web support for Allo was teased months ago, and now Google has made good on its promise, though there are a few important caveats.

Moreover, the app won't work on a mobile browser which makes it safer and secure.

The web version of Google Allo works like WhatsApp Web. All of your conversations will now pop up on the screen, be showing a status that you're signed into it. Users can now access the app directly from the web browser of their computers. The web version is the same thing as you will see on your smartphone, which is cool because if your smartphone dies then you will still have the web version.

Also if your phone is out of battery, Allo for web will also stop working. We are still not sure how many people have used Google Allo, since Google does not release that information. Again, this is only available for Android devices for now, but the landing page does indicate that iPhones will be supported down the line. You can chat, share photos and stickers, but the standout feature is its use of Google Assistant, the smart AI assistant. Scan the QR code on your browser, and tada! You can even access the sticker gallery to download more sticker packs.

To start with, open the Allo app on your Android phone, go to Menu Allo for Web scan the code with your phone. 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".

To recall, Google Allo was unveiled for the first time at the company's I/O developer conference held previous year, alongside "Duo".
