Thank you so much for developing an amazing messaging app like this. I used to use an app called MessageMe and was taken off the Play store once it was acquired by another company! This new Allo app is by far the best messaging app I've used. The added feature of the Duo button only makes it even better. Thank you Google!
It's alright. No way are any of my friends going to use it, so no SMS kinda sucks. It's useless to me. Not to mention no good themes. And why in the world would you keep saving every single picture that is sent to me into my Photos. If I want to save them, I'll save them. Don't do it for me.
The chat aspect works great, but without pure SMS integration no one is going to care. You're way too late to the game to start making up your own rules. This will fall into the rubble along with Google+ if you don't add SMS directly. Update: Almost a year later and still no SMS/MMS support.
Wow Google, wow. Seriously this is amazing. If more people used it, it would honestly take over. You NEED to find away to make this app default to Android natively. Maybe enable SMS/MMS on it!! Overall, I'm blown away. Anytime someone will say, WhatsApp me or FB message me, I'm just gonna tell them to download Allo.
Doesn't allowed to register!!! Myself and some of my friends tried to register with this app but every time it's failed to register and saying "Oops, we can't reach Allo servers. Please check that you are connected to the internet and try again". We never expected something like this from Google.
My only gripe was when Allo first came out it didn't support text messaging/mms. Just installed it the other day and notice it does now support mms. Great replacement for Hangouts now and lots of cool features not found elsewhere like AI supported messaging.
