  • good overall, lots of potential

    By Someguywholikesdominos
    - share location is whack - there should be a more in depth vote/poll command - should have custom backgrounds (uploadable) - could have better web compatibility and more friendly interface
  • Works well.

    Bravo google.
  • Why use this?

    By MpowerSkills
    You would use this app for group chats across different operating systems, if you didn’t know other options existed. Worst messaging app I’ve ever used. Messages are received in a different order than they are sent and the web version of convo’s doesn’t mirror the in app chat, if you send a video it will take somewhere between 30 minutes to infinity to upload and send. The web version only works if you have a smart phone with the app open and running. Crazy bad stuff. You also can’t do useful things like send your friends money.
  • Está bien

    En líneas generales está muy buena, debería arreglarse un problema con la posición de los botones de activación y desactivación de funciones en la configuración que aparecen corridos en la lista.
  • Works better on Android, but that’s to be a given.

    Allo works great; however, sharing gifs on iOS doesn’t animate for everyone. While sharing from android in google photos it does animate. Also would like to see voice note transcription like android as well.
  • Great app

    I am an iPhone user and I enjoy this app more than iMessage, Apple’s messaging platform. One thing I wish could change if possible is to be able to use the app without having to invite another person to download the app. I’d like to use this as my primary messaging platform, but only if another user wants to use it. I would also love to be able to customize my own themes.
  • Hangouts is better than this

    I have one request. I should be able to use google allo with someone who has no phone number. I should be allowed to use my gmail account as a second option.
  • Great app

    I love this app! Make an iPad compatible version please!
  • Meh

    I wanted to like it, but I have an iPhone SE, and the keyboard plus word suggestions take up more than half the screen real estate. I can only see one message with the keyboard visible. There wasn’t an option to disable word suggestions either, so I would have to live with it or use private messages, which would defeat the purpose as the only feature I like is integrated Google Assistant. I’ll come back in a few years when I get a bigger phone, maybe.
  • Love Google Assistant in Allo

    By iArjunk
    We all chat but Allo has the Google AI built in which makes more and more interesting to chat and use AI work for you! There is just no end to what Google Assistant can do for you, I just asked for a fact abt Canada and AI after providing the facts, asked me if I am interested in a fact to be sent every day and gave me options to select the time to send it. Isn’t that awesome!
