Google Allo's Web Client Is Now Rolling Out for Android Users

The option to scan is currently available only for Android users but is expected to be rolled out on the iOS app soon

Unfortunately Chrome doesn't support this feature on Mac OS X. If you own a Mac, we recommend either using something like Applicationize or a script-based work around.

In February 2017, Google VP of Communications Products Nick Fox had tweeted out a screenshot of the Allo web client, saying then that it was still in "early" development.

It should be noted that this is not a standalone web portal for the Allow messaging service (like we saw with Hangouts). As the site explains, Allo "learns if you're more of a "haha" or "lol" person so the more you use Google Allo, the more "you" the suggestions become". It will be a few more weeks probably before iOS is supported.

As we stated, the web version for Allo is now limited to Android users, but Google has promised to extend the support to iPhone too. Amidst the crowd of messaging apps, do users care about Allo's web version?

Boko Haram bombers kill 20 at camp in northeast Nigeria

When you head to Allo Web's page, you're greeted by the screen you can see above. From that point, you will have to scan the QR Code. You get started by opening Allo on your phone and scanning a QR code presented by the website.

Allo for the web is a breeze to set up, but you'll need your phone.

Google Allo was first introduced at I/O developer conference previous year alongside the video app known as Duo. There's the left pane where all your conversations are, and there's the wider right pane featuring the actual chat bubbles and threads. Allo users can also animate the emojis by just touching and holding the send button.

Google's mobile messenger Allo is now available on PC. Allo for web shows what's on the mobile app. We are still not sure how many people have used Google Allo, since Google does not release that information. If you have an Android device and would like to check out the new Allow web client version, you can download it now through Google Play Store.
