Solid App 4/5
By That One Guy Around The Corner
Overall, the app works well and Google Assistant can be extremely helpful. My only concerns are that there’s currently no way to turn off message predictions, and everyone in a chat has to use the same theme.
Y guys are the best!!!
Gifs no longer animated 2/5
Ever since new update, gif animation is broken. Only static image is sent to the recipient.
Slow, buggy in iphone
Great! Family connection!!!❤️❤️❤️ 5/5

Great! Family connection!!!❤️❤️❤️
Great, needs tablet support. 3/5
Not available on iPad.
Not iPhone X compatible 3/5
By Eloy Giovonnie
Please make allo iPhone X compatible so I can give it 5 stars.
No iMessage 3/5
This is a good group messing app if you know people w/o Apple devices. But it really struggles when it comes to sending videos. Better to just talk all your ignorant people into using Apple.
A great app for talking with a small group 5/5
My friends and I started using this app because we all had different types of phones. And now we just use it all the time.
iOS version is very buggy 1/5
This app is very good on Android operating system, but on iOS I’ve had nothing but problems. The app will randomly freeze like it is loading but will not show the conversation. I will receive notifications but still unable to see the conversation. I have found no resolution to this problem it just randomly starts working after few hours/days. I have submitted many feedback to Google via the shake feature but still no resolution or response from Google.
A new problem that started this week is now my GIF’s aren’t showing to the other people in the chat. I can see theirs and I can see mine but they say mine isn’t showing.
Videos stopped playing in Sept Iphone 8 to iPhone 6 3/5
All of a sudden I can't see iphone 8 videos. And this week the pictures don't show until I download them. I have reported this problem over a month ago and is still not fixed.
Won’t Open Links 1/5
When a get sent a link, and tap on it, Nothing happens. Browser won’t open or do anything.
Not iPhone X Optimised 2/5
The app is not working properly on iPhone X screen and needs an update.
Can't Leave Bitmoji Keyboard 4/5
Since the iOS 11.1.1 update I can no longer switch keyboards once I select the Bitmoji Keyboard. I'm stuck there. I have to go into another app to switch keyboards then back into Allo.
Lacks iPhone X Support 1/5
This app ignores iPhone X users. Allo lazily resorts to the black bars at the top and bottom for iPhone X instead of taking advantage of the full screen.
excellent overall app, but it is missing a few features. 3/5
Google. I love your app - it's beautiful, it's easy to use, it is fast.
two stars deducted, one for each crucial feature missing:
- ability to customize themes. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. this seems like a fairly easy thing to do that more basic apps have mastered.
- ability to use as an SMS replacement without the other user needing to know about it/download it.
Not optimized for iPhone X 2/5
It’s only a chat app so I would hope this could get addressed like immediately. I just don’t want a sharp white home bar glowing in a sea of software bezel blackness on an app I have open a lot. Get it fixed quick, please!
Nice but needs iPad support 2/5
By Kmdu59 Clone
This app is amazing I would give it 3 or even 4 stars if it supported iPad the I love this app use it a lot I don’t understand why it isn’t supported on iPad
Doesn’t work on iPhone X 2/5
I couldn’t get it to go past the initial set up screen to input your phone number.
iPhone X NEEDS to be optimized 2/5
I use Allo on a daily basis and even after only a couple days, the huge black boarders I get while using the app are extremely annoying. This app needs to be updated for the iPhone X’s screen!
Needs True Multi-Device Support 3/5
The app works fine, but seems to be more interested in copying WhatsApp than being a great messaging app. Support should be added so that we can use the app on a computer or tablet without having to have our phone connected to the internet.
Want to love the app, but can’t convince anyone to use it until true multi-device support is added.
Great app 4/5
By B. Gunter
I am an iPhone user and I enjoy this app more than iMessage, Apple’s messaging platform. One thing I wish could change if possible is to be able to use the app without having to invite another person to download the app. I’d like to use this as my primary messaging platform, but only if another user wants to use it.
I would also love to be able to customize my own themes.
Update: doesn't even let me get off the screen to verify my phone number. Hit next and the app just sits there. Contacted Google via the app and no reply. I really feel the quality of their web and app offerings have gotten really poor.
I want this to be tied into gmail, hangouts, etc. I don't need another separate chat app.
WhatsApp is still my favorite and Hangouts is way way behind the times.
Search feature for iPhone users 4/5
This is a very great app. But it would be better if there’s a search feature in each chat to go over previous messages quickly. This feature is available in androids and would be nice if we have it for iOS as well.
Good, but no SMS support 3/5
Good app, but lack of SMS support kills it.
Great app 5/5
Great app, easy to use. Actually found out about this at one of our schools football games, they were giving it free rides in return for downloading the application, but now I can’t see myself deleting the app off of my phone. Fun way to chat!
NOT FOR IPAD 1/5
Description says compatible with iPad but you can't even search for the app without switching the filter to iPhone only apps.
Upon opening the app, it's clear it was meant for iPhones only.
Reliable, lovely App. 5/5
By Louna Z.
Reliable and accurate, easy to use, keeps your loved ones close by. I love it!
Good, but can be better 3/5
I'd like to see the iOS notifications disappear when I'm using the Allo web app. I shouldn't have to manually clear countless notifications on my iPhone if I'm sitting at my desk using the web app.
Sending video 3/5
Why does video looks so weird when you send through the app?
Great app! 4/5
Excellent app. Their auto suggestions are amazing. Would be good to have a search or a bookmark functionality for future references.
Great App 5/5
By DZ Wood
Great app to stay in touch...especially forniut if the country trips.
Google Allo work well but need the web to work better 4/5
Thank you 🙂
Getting better 3/5
Better than Hangouts because of assistant and intelligent features
Worse than hangouts because tied to phone. Main way I know lots of people use hangouts is so they don’t need to have phone and the web enabled Allo still requires phone!
Needs some important updates 3/5
Needs flexibility to have option to send sms or allo message. Google hangouts allows this. Also, messages falling through the cracks..... Responses not being received. Not ready for prime time yet.
Can’t send videos 3/5
You can’t send videos in landscape because it will reform it into portrait
Another great app from google. 5/5
By Vijay Anil
Go for it its the best app for chat, way better than WhatsApp.
Works great 4/5
This seems to work just fine, but one Huge request. Any chance of getting an option for a 'dark mode'?
Square video? No thanks. 2/5
Allo takes any video messages and squishes them down into a square. Looks ridiculous. Also, I'd prefer the option to default with Incognito messages, as I'm much more interested in encryption than the Google assistant reading all my texts. The feature is cool, but let me choose my default.
Should be able to chat with hangouts contacts 3/5
Should be able to chat with hangouts contacts
Buggy after last iOS 11 update 1/5
Cannot read conversations as screen splits and doesn’t allow scrolling.
plsssssssa do it 4/5
finally ios 11 hve one handed support type. so when i try to use it its ok. but i must send reply eith > botton. pls add send eith return key at keyboard
The best!!!!! 5/5
Great app! 4/5
I really like this app, but I wish it would have more features like video calling or calling incorporated. Instead, you have to download another app just for you to be able to video call. Another thing I’d like to see is new themes! I feel like the ones provided are all too similar. It would also be great if it allowed you to change the wallpaper using your own photos. I really enjoy this app, but it just needs a few more things in my opinion.
Cannot multi platform 1/5
I have this on my android. I love it. But, there is no iPad app (only iPhone), and even so, I cannot use it on both (signing in on one signs me out on the other). Whenever I try to access my chats on Chrome on my iPad, it continually asks me to download Chrome to view the content (which I am viewing it on... really?)
Performs great but is redunant 4/5
Good interface. Google assistant works well in the app and is very useful. The app is perfectly designed, fast and reliable. would be more convenient if this app was more optimized for ipad. Also, it would be great if Google duo and Google allo were combined into one app. Its confusing for users and is redunant since google also offers hangouts, which has messaging and video calling too. But google allo is diffefent in that it is not centered towards google accounts and rather uses a users phone number but also has the option to connect the nunber with a google account. It all comes down to which app users use most. I for one think google allo and google duo is overall better than hangouts but these two apps face competition from Hangouts which is more widely used.
Nice App, Top Battery Drainer 2/5
App is really nice. Makes it easy to have people jump on a digital messaging solution vs SMS. Going to go back to Slack because this app is always 1st or 2nd highest on my battery usage and I only message 2 people on it sparingly so far.
Awesome App for Business 5/5
We love this app. I suggest Business to get this app.
High Vibe Cafe is loving the High Vibes of Allo 5/5
We switched our group chats to allo and love it!!it actually provides a platform for efficiency and for FUN!!!
