Allo For Web Is Officially Launched

To keep your Allo for web connected, your mobile phone must be connected to the Internet. Here's what you need to know.

Some of the highlights of Google's smart messaging app Allo include its smart replies, the ability to shout and whisper by changing the size of the font, photo editing, stickers and support for Google Assistant. In other words, it'll be quicker in most cases to just use your phone.

Allo also allows the user to send and receive texts messages (SMS). Now, you can finally access Google's new chat on the web through browsers. But there's a caveat. This can be done by scanning a QR code, which is similar to what you do with WhatsApp web client as well.

If, however, you don't count yourself among that group, getting up and running with the Allo web app is fairly straightforward.

Adding further, Amit Fulay's recent tweet suggests users to try out the "Allo" for web on Chrome. You'll also need to pair the service with Google Chrome with a simple QR scan, and after that you'll be good to go. Once that is done, you will need to load up Google Allo on your Android device.

It's no secret that there are more than a few messaging platforms to choose from these days, and it's often said that Google is one of the biggest offenders in that area.

The Allo web app looks set to launch with the app now displaying a link to "Allo for Web" now appearing in the sidebar of the app.

On your phone, open the Google Allo app. From that point, you will have to scan the QR Code. The Assistant-powered messenger can now be accessed from your desktop's web browser.

To recall, Google Allo was unveiled for the first time at the company's I/O developer conference held a year ago, alongside "Duo". What do you think of Allo's web app? We are still not sure how many people have used Google Allo, since Google does not release that information.
