This could be an excellent app but it's held back by horrible Developers. For example I can't use Allo with Google Assistant to send a message with my voice. I can't use it from my Android Wear watch with my voice. Doesn't have an Android Wear app. After a year Google give me the ability to use it on my PC web browser but it's handicapped. It's still tied to your phone so if your phone doesn't have good service it won't work. Also you have to have a browser window open unlike Hangouts which has a Chrome extension. Why didn't Google just fix Hangouts!
Over a year ago, I really did not like Allo much (two stars at the time) and found it inferior to Google's own Hangouts, but for the past month of testing it out fully again daily, I'm growing to it fast and feel it's actually overtaken Hangouts 😸 ...however, it still has a little way to go, such as including the ability to assign Google+ profiles to your Allo account, use email addresses as well as mobile numbers, group chat history for new comers in a group chat, a lot more darker themes (currently only one), in app built-in audio playback (short audio bytes shared in the chat) as well as the fun 5 second GiF creator and hopefully fix a few GiF entry bugs we have already reported... it's certainly getting there and on its way to being the best and also being a decent replacement for Hangouts 😻 Device: OnePlus 3T with LOS14
Well up to version 19 now and notifications still not working correctly on S7. Many updates and still the same! 😥
If you could only see the gifs larger when you click on it instead of the clock automatically equating to sending of a message, I would have rated this 5 🌟 s
Why voice message still get "couldn't save audio. Try again" on my LG v20? Plz fix it!
I like it. Thanks for giving us more choices. The best thing is the suggestions. It's great for people who don't text like my husband.
