The app is packed full of features that you can not use at all. Because it's a "VARY,VARY,VARY". Contain Garden. The way you have it set up is all party's must have the app not a bad thing if you are in my contract list. But what about a regular person or business or the local pizza shop sending a text my food is ready. like you can do with ever other messages app out there. It should have been baked in the G suite. Bam a better adoption rate. It have great potential but with out sms or nation wide roll out Rcs. this thing will never go no where. The thing about hangout it was able to connect with everything. Now that's a killer feature For app built like this. Smh
This app is excellent! Google Assistant is a great addition and resource. For Android users, the Google services integrate very well and it makes functions within the different Google apps smooth and fast. And do not forget the end to end encryption, even within groups! The encryption aspect of the app has a timer that can be set for different lengths of time before destruction of conversations, or never if that is what you prefer. Highly recommend this app for a bit of fun and a lot of security!
We're coming up on a year and this app is still lagging well behind on the features that Google had implemented in Hangouts. No reason for it not to have a web client and a version to use on Android Wear, especially now that Wear 2.0 is out. It's a shame if only because there are so many new things to like but I feel like I'm always in a waiting room to get back what Hangouts offered.
There are 3 simple features 1. SMS fall back. If I send a message to someone without Allo, the message gets sent via SMS. 2. A desktop client. Hangouts already has this, why not add it to Allo? 3. The ability to send from any device. Allo needs to be able to link my phone number with my Google account in order to allow me to use Allo on my tablet.
Google is not listening. I am unable to send multiple photos from my Gallary to a single people via share option. I have 150 photos in Camera roll but only 10 photos are showing. I am also unable to send single photo to multiple people. It has some smart features but it lacks BASIC chatting functions. 😡
Please add SMS inagration please!!! It's not that hard this could be a Skype and iMessage killer if you inihrated a default messager and Google voice I didn't buy this pixel for nothing I want a amazing message app you need to give me one. What it has is not good enough this needs to be a one stop messenger like FB messenger please add the ability for just a email so people with ipods can use it too please
