Google Allo, Launched by Google a year back to compete with established instant messaging applications like Messenger and Whatsapp. Google along with allo launched Google Duo as a video calling application which is an instant hit. Although allo is good enough with features like Self Destructive messages, Huge Stickers, Smart Reply etc. Google Assistant is the major feature I liked about the app, which was inbuilt for pixel phones. One thing Allo lacks is it doesn’t have the web client like Whatsapp or Facebook back in the beginning. Google recently added a web version of the allo app to access allo on the PC. If you are someone who is disappointed with Allo not having a desktop client, Here is how to use Google Allo on Windows and Mac.
Here are a few things to note before you proceed:
- Google Allo Web version is not a standalone app on your Windows or Mac, that means it cannot be installed as an app just like Google Chrome etc. Google Allo web app runs on chrome only
- You need to connect your Android Phone to the PC just like Whatsapp Web Version. It Won’t run in the browser without a connection with allo app on the device. This supports only Android devices only. However, support for iPhones is coming up.
- It runs only on Chrome Browser. If you are using any other browser, Go ahead and Download Google Chrome Offline Installer.
