Tuesday, July 18th, 2017

Yesterday's update to Allo came with announcements that it now supports reactions (basically "likes") and that the doomed blobmoji are to be kept on life support in the form of a sticker pack. As meager an update as it might seem at first glance, it turns out that there are several other new features in this release. On top of that, a teardown shows quite a bit is in the works.

Google updates Allo to v14 with message reactions [APK Download]

Monday, July 17th, 2017

We're coming up on a year since Allo launched, and some features we all wanted remain missing. There's no SMS support, no multi-device messaging, and no desktop client. Oh, Google keeps promising the desktop app, but instead we're getting message reactions. Yay?

We've been hearing about hearts showing up in the app recently, and how it all makes sense. This is Google's latest little tweak to Allo. It's the sort of thing we might be able to enjoy if there weren't so many gaping holes in the feature set.

Businesses can now chat with customers through Allo or SMS

Friday, July 14th, 2017

Google allows businesses to register themselves through Google My Business, where they can adjust the information that appears on their Google search/Google Maps listings. They can add a phone number, change opening hours, respond to reviews, and so on. A new feature is rolling out in the My Business dashboard that allows customers to directly message companies via SMS.

Google says the Allo desktop client is coming in a “few more weeks”

Saturday, July 8th, 2017

Allo is actually a really nice application, but there are simply too many missing features for me to use it in any meaningful capacity. One of those missing features is a desktop client, which was first revealed by Nick Fox (Google VP of Communications) in February. In May, he tweeted that the web client was still "a month or two from public release." It's been about a month and a half since that statement, but the Allo desktop client is still a ways off.

The Allo web client is still a month or two from release, says Google’s Nick Fox

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Oh, Allo. We all wanted to give you a chance when Google announced you at I/O 2016. After months of waiting, the app has picked few of the features we wanted. Hey, it's got stickers, though. According to Google's VP of product management Nick Fox, the Allo web app is at least a month or two from release still.

It was Fox who teased the Allo web app in February. At the time, it contained many of the features we've seen in the phone client like stickers and Smart Replies.
