Missing the ability to use from more than one device such as my tablet or desktop. Can't use without SMS number tied try account. @google is the only assistant so far. No @notifications for users. Can't edit messages after they're sent. Won't upload images from links like imgur. No Wear integration (update: 2.0 added some functions). Incognito chats are not in the same chat but are a new chat. Doesn't offer anything new that isn't already done by the main competitor. On the positive side we can at least remove people from group hangouts. SMS fallback is nice but not worth it for being tied to one device.
Moved over to Allo from Hangouts with the last update. Love it's new and quickly released features. Saw this release has hands-free messaging using Ok Google. Can't seem to get that to work. The only thing that will make this a 5 star app is the final release of the desktop (web) client. Again, love the work and whimsey being done and introduced to Allo.
Good messaging app, possibly even the best I've used. Clean and easy without bloat and good features. Unfortunately it's unlikely to matter because no one's using it and no one's using it because there isn't a good enough reason to, why bother downloading yet another messaging app if it doesn't simplify things at all. SMS and you're good to go. Also the odd way it deals with non allo users is often annoying and too much like spam.
I love the stickers and chat bots, and the app is very beautiful. But certain features are lacking (true sms support, a web client, conversation preservation across devices, etc.), so I have to withhold at least one star. Edit: I forgot to mention that while the app sends pictures and videos in really high quality, the in-app camera is pretty terrible, especially when compared to the wonderful native camera on my Nexus 6p.
Nice thing but no one knows about it u have to make ad .that's marketing right that will helps to improvise in all terms. Many people don't even know about the allow and duo they just use marketed whatapp there's nothing on WhatsApp. I pleased that pls make ad for ur apps and products that will increase ur worth in market
I love the idea of this, however, because texting is still so fundamental, all you have to do is support SMS and bring the features from Android Messages to Allo and done! You have a product people won't be able to live without. But currently, people are too invested in Hangouts, and Android Messages, or iMessage. Also, why is there a disconnect from Allo's Google Assistant and the one that's built into my phone?
