Description

Google Allo is a smart messaging app that helps you say more and do more. Express yourself better with stickers, Smart Reply, and HUGE emojis & text. Allo brings you the Google Assistant.

Smart Reply
Respond to messages without typing a single word. Smart Reply learns over time and suggests responses to text and photos, in your style.

Ink
Get creative with the photos you send by doodling on them or adding text.

Stickers
Say it all with the perfect sticker. Stickers in Google Allo are designed by independent artists and studios from around the world.

SHOUT or whisper
No more typing in ALL CAPS to get your point across. Say it louder or quieter by changing the size of your text with a quick swipe.

Meet your Google Assistant
Google Allo brings you the Google Assistant. Find restaurants nearby, share videos to watch, and get answers, right in your conversation with friends. Add @google to your group conversation or chat one-on-one with your Assistant. It’s your own personal Google, always ready to help.

Incognito mode
Send messages with end-to-end encryption, use private notifications to help keep your chats more discreet, and control how long your messages stick around with expiring chats.

This messaging app is great, and I honestly think it could take on iMessage except for one thing: the SMS messages to someone who doesn't have allo are terrible. They send from some random number through Google like spam and the other person cannot reply. If this could send SMS messages like imessage, it would be my favorite messaging app on any platform.

Yet again, Google creates a beautiful app full of great features, but then ruins it with broken core functionality. It should be able to properly replace the standard messaging app and handle SMS in a normal way (like iMessage). Otherwise it's just another superfluous messaging app. And let's face it: everyone already used WhatsApp. The only way it can compete is if it becomes the stock Android messaging app, and it won't do that if it doesn't properly support SMS to any phone.

Themes are pretty bad. Users should be able to set one theme for all chats instead of doing it individually. No point of having the picture,gif, sticker etc options above the text box when the Google keyboard is being used. Why is this app along with Android messages and Duo not all integrated like iMessage? Full Review

Best app I've used so far for group chats, It's good looking, clean, lagless, and gifs and assistant are integrated way better than any other messaging app. It's a pretty amazingly powerful and fast messaging application. Google did a lot of things right here. Full Review

I absolutely love Allo. Between the features, Duo integration, and clean interface, what's not to love? However, the fact that Android Messages was not integrated into Allo is just silly. We aren't at a point where the world has entirely switched from sms to rcs. Should the very least be able to send sms. Would automatically become my default messenger Full Review

I meant to update my rating.. kudos.. you finally stopped out of the 90's.. still a few things that should be included, but what am improvement overall.. ❎ replying in the notification bar should not dismiss the message; Android Messages does not do that.. ❎Should add pop-up messages window option.. ❎ it isn't quite seamless in switching to send a quick incognito message via long pressing contact context menu. ❎ I should be able to register multiple numbers. ✔️ I cannot reply from the notification bar. ❎ incognito messaging needs to have it's own listing separate from regular messages list (optional) ✔️ no Duo integration⁉️ Full Review

Good app but in order to be more useful against the competition it needs SMS Support. Not everyone is willing to just install another messenger app that requires for everyone else to have it. Too many apps already do this Full Review

I'm thoroughly enjoying this app, but it's missing quite a few features that it desperately needs. Such as: Better Read Receipts, and syncing across multiple devices. Other than that very good app. Full Review

The only thing missing is the option to have discreet notifications for normal chats (without having to go incognito). An app-wide setting to have discreet notifications by default would be nice. Either that, or the ability to backup incognito chats. I don't want notifications to show up, but I also don't want to lose the chats. Seems like there's no way to do that! Full Review

It should become default messaging app. Allo has huge potential but not sure why Google is not using it fully. If this app becomes default messaging app in Android then it would easily give tough fight to iMessage. Full Review

The app itself is fantastic; it's the lack of adoption as a service that is the harbinger. The platform is amazing and does so many things that other message services can't . It's​ just a matter of getting the people you chat with to install the app. Full Review

The app regularly ignores the system-level violation settings. Even though I tell it not to vibrate, it still does. This is the only app which does this. Full Review

Does not work with SMS, so limited use and another messaging app. Assistant does not have same skills as the normal assistant which you can already text to. Full Review

Loved it. And basic idea behind saving message over cloud is too good to ignore. In case of losing your device or changing you can get your all chats instantly. Full Review

I can't figure out who Allo is geared at. It seems to me to be a testing ground for machine learning; it invites the user to interact with it in various disparate and unrewarding ways. It's a cutesy vibe without much standalone merit next to whatsapp, but there's some underlying Google experiment afoot. Full Review

It has all the pieces I want but the design is extremely cluttered. On top of that, if you have the Google keyboard, a lot of the features are redundant. I really wanted to like, maybe if they update some of these things, l'll come back to it. Full Review

Give us TRUE SMS support! I would love to make this my default messaging app, but I can't do it if I can't send SMS messages to my friends and family that don't have the app. Full Review

I only wish Allo gave an option to see the notification count on the app icon when there are new messages. I also think Allo should have full End-2-End encryption for all messages, not just the incognito conversations. Otherwise, this app is great. It's replaced my standard text messaging app and I don't plan on ever switching. Full Review

The UI is refreshingly clean. I just have one thing that I definitely miss coming from WhatsApp and that's replying to a specific old message in the conversation. It would be complete with that feature. I hope you consider the request. Full Review

okay Google, it's time for a talk... You need to start making all your messaging apps come together and become one, even Hangouts and duo, mainly so people in the iOS side can stop gloating about how good imessage is, it's not, and it's because of imessage that they won't leave iOS and try out other phones or computers... You guys have a chance to shake up the market with a universal messaging app that can work in all plateform but mainly be the imessage kill that Android needs... I know that messager for andoid is going to have that new messaging thing but unfortunately phone providers don't want to roll it out... Anyways this app is still a good messaging app the only thing is no but my best friend and I use it, do to the lack of sms support or, can't believe I'm going to say this, imessage like feature of using your phone number as the key to connect and contact others more fluidly. I'm sorry if I sounded like I hate Allo I don't, I just want Allo to succeed because it is a very under-appreciated messager app. Full Review

Getting better! The text transcription is amazing, I wish there was a way to get the transcriptions on the notifications in Android wear since we can't hear them. Also needs Google Assistant support: "ok Google, send Allo message", it should work! Also multiple device support should be a must in this world where people have multiple devices! Full Review
