Wonderful App 5/5
Love its ability to predict my next response.
What a stupid messaging app! 1/5
So i am having a text direct with one person and we start noticing these ads pop up and questions like Google allo is interrupting into our our messaging that we're doing back and forth.
since I said get some steaks, Google allo inserts : "what type of steaks?"
Google allo then tells us where stores are...
I just want to text!
Great app 5/5
I like the modern design. The app works great. I'm happy with it
By Joel Jitsu
I wouldn't even download this on android because it doesn't even support SMS. Google messed up with this app
Good app 5/5
Have a lot of options to enjoy
Does What I Need 5/5
Alternative to iMessage
Mending relationships with android users 4/5
This app is useful for getting back in touch with android users who you've lost touch with because they aren't on iMessage. App needs more work but it has a lot of promise.
By Drew Foreman
It's great and it has become my main messenger over the last few months. Bring the "turn a selfie into a sticker pack of you" feature on Android to iOS too. It's weird that Android users can send me theirs but I can't make them.
Sms support. Desktop client. 1/5
Writing this in consideration of the killing of SMS on Hangouts. This doesn't have SMS or a desktop app, so it's essentially the messaging part of Hangouts without any of the integration. Holding onto my iPhone until google gets its messaging system together.
So good you'll cry 5/5
Love it, but it keeps crashing. 3/5
I love that there is a new messaging app like this and a way better way to send gifs through messages. My only problem is that the app keeps crashing every 5 minutes.
Pretty cool 4/5
Being an iPhone user allo allows me to add all my friends including Android users into one chat and have conversations with everyone and not bothering someone with 150 text messages since it's a different app. Only reason I gave it 4 stars is because Android users can take a selfie and it creates a bitmoji like character which is pretty cool man. Where is for the iOS users?!? Overall dope app.
Cool Features 4/5
I love the auto replies. Thy are really good at first, but eventually get a little repetitive.
Minus one star bc no selfie stickers yet for the iOS app. That's BS. :-)
Waste of time 1/5
With Google assistant now on iPhone stand alone this is useless. Focus more time on established apps like hangouts way too many messaging and video services
Why do I have to use my phone number? 1/5
Deleted before I could try it out. I don't give out my phone number to random apps.
I love it! 5/5
It's very helpful, and I would definitely recommend it. Seems like just another hangouts-themed app but it's not. Very innovative and definitely the next big thing.
Features I like... 4/5
Wonderful features: daily subscriptions, google search within the site , very similar in features with FaceBook Messenger using SMS platform to transmit.
Great chat app love the assistant 5/5
Great chat app very clean and easy to use!
iMessage is much better 1/5
iMessage is much better. I was expecting something better from Google.
Good chat app 4/5

But no takers😅
Great App 5/5
Better than What's app or Telegram, Loved it
Muy buena app desde mi IPHONE 7 PLUS 5/5
Me encanta y la recomiendo
Point of the app?? 1/5
I dont really get the pint of the app, why not just texting? Allo is really just a way to send texts a different way with emojis
Need icon on Google Maps 3/5
Use this morning. I use Google maps. It would be great to add a button (replace Search) for Assistant on map screen.
I also cannot sync my exchange calendar to my "how's my day" or "agenda"
Update or help?
Still Behind 1/5
By Cyanotype Memory
A messaging app should make sharing and sending messages easy. The lack of Share Sheet integration is aggravating.
Useless copy of whatsapp 1/5
By Lowly intern
Rather then using its strength to create a united system, it seems google has created a useless app that tries to copy whatsapp. The last thing we need is more layers of communication.... if only google hangouts could still text internationally
Literally does NOTHING 1/5
Saw this advertised: thought it sounded cool.
After 5 minutes, it just quit responding and does absolutely NOTHING....literally...
I like it! 5/5
By NorCali Roadrunner
I like this app. I never used Hangout so I don't have a comparison.
It's easy to use and has some fun features.
Should become compatible with The iWatch 1/5
Literally it's just another SMS app
Fun and Useful 4/5
By Cintia DR
It makes it easy to customize without taking tons of time to do it and makes conversations fun and simple to share the usual. Taking a picture to share on a conversation makes perfect use of space. Post-predictions of emojis and words seem to help, but could improve with better interaction/ results from Ok Google. Apple Watch support would be a plus, and an easier time inviting friends to the app would also help. Would love to be able to replace most of the alternative msgs apps with something like this.
ye, it's pretty funky n good
By Life ixl
Love this app
By The Hugger Fred
I herd there was some type of character creation thing on here...?
Where's the custom emojis? 1/5
By Calli rainbow
I read all about how Allo had this new software added so I downloaded it in hopes of trying it but then I can't find it anywhere which kinda really blows.
Love the app but there is a lot of crashing! I would also like to be able to make my own sticker like on the android version.
Let's Make it Great... 3/5
OK Google Assistant, respond to me out loud, like you do for Pixel & Home users.
@Lucky hasn't worked, ever. ;(
Great App 5/5
By Mad Dogg Coll
Save money on texting.
Really fun! 5/5
Beautiful, fast, lots of fun features. Why have boring conversations on another ap?
Who cares? 1/5
Ooh we're Google, we build AI robots because our programmers think it's cool. Oh wait, no one actually cares...
Innovative new wave 4/5
Hey, not perfect, but a new wave. I like it.
Apple Watch?? 1/5
Where is the compatibility for Apple Watch? This app is useless to me and my family until you support the Apple Watch!
What's the point? 1/5
It's an SMS app, I do. It see a point to have yet another SMS app on my phone. Just because they are killing SMS on Hangouts I guess?
Let's see how many apps we can make people install!!! 😜
Fantastic, but needs one thing 4/5
By xavior mcfredrickson
Really love the app! Please add the ability to easily collaborate and share Google docs through the messenger. Give the option for more productive use, even if it is meant mostly for teenage girls. At least at it to the share sheet. Really great app!
Honestly better than iMessage 5/5
++ v good
So much better than texting and the google suggestions are quite useful while also being funny.
Software engineer 5/5
One of the best messenger is Alo
Google asistant is the best feature in this app
I love the app !
Can be a LOT better 3/5
By Ram RS
Specific to current version: The current update takes away the cards from weather.com and displays the daily weather report as plain text. The information is still there, but it's not as easy to process at a glance as graphics.
General review: This app can do better. For example, is like to the exclude a few news sources from my daily briefing. The app doesn't let me customize in any straightforward manner.
Still can't receive pictures! 1/5
Hire better coders or dump the product like you have with so many others. This has potential but stupid little things like this will keep it down.
