Just make it all the same and stop making us suffer with a choice between all these dumb messaging apps. Do you not read these reviews? It's the same all across the board. Bring AndroidPay and Google Wallet together and bring Hangouts, Messenger, and Allo/Duo together.
Please add SMS support, I would like to make Allo Deafult. Thanks.
Does it do SMS? Nope.
Super pleased. Seems the notification problem has been fixed, so I receive all text message notifications now. Aside from that issue before, this app is wonderful. Super easy to set up, good customization. Access to Google and it's features through the app works very smoothly. Super convient when I'm having a conversation and I want Google something related to it, and I can Google it right in the app. Emojis are good too, including (so far) personally customized emoji sets. Overall, I love this app. Works great. Don't think I'll go back to default text messengers again.
It works really well for messaging my friends I talk to most as they have allo installed but it would be so much better and I'm not the only one who thinks this is if the SMS contacts bit would let you contact them but have it come through the normal thread on there phone and Allo on mine. Cause now it goes through there phone as a weird 5 digit number and it took me ages to figure out why and everything.
