Google Allo is a smart messaging app that helps you say more and do more. Express yourself better with stickers, Smart Reply, and HUGE emojis & text. Allo brings you the Google Assistant.

Smart Reply
Respond to messages without typing a single word. Smart Reply learns over time and suggests responses to text and photos, in your style.

Get creative with the photos you send by doodling on them or adding text.

Say it all with the perfect sticker. Stickers in Google Allo are designed by independent artists and studios from around the world.

SHOUT or whisper
No more typing in ALL CAPS to get your point across. Say it louder or quieter by changing the size of your text with a quick swipe.

Meet your Google Assistant
Google Allo brings you the Google Assistant. Find restaurants nearby, share videos to watch, and get answers, right in your conversation with friends. Add @google to your group conversation or chat one-on-one with your Assistant. It’s your own personal Google, always ready to help.

Incognito mode
Send messages with end-to-end encryption, use private notifications to help keep your chats more discreet, and control how long your messages stick around with expiring chats.

Google Allo work well but need the web to work better
StandTro on 10/17/2017
Thank you 🙂
Getting better
sanscoda on 10/15/2017
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
t.miz on 10/14/2017
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
Jedipacman on 10/13/2017
You can’t send videos in landscape because it will reform it into portrait
Another great app from google.
Vijay Anil on 10/12/2017
Go for it its the best app for chat, way better than WhatsApp.
Works great
Cybersco on 10/11/2017
This seems to work just fine, but one Huge request. Any chance of getting an option for a 'dark mode'?
Square video? No thanks.
zsorrow on 10/9/2017
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
suamanta on 10/8/2017
Should be able to chat with hangouts contacts
Sending video
Hesria on 10/8/2017

The best!!!!!
sisco2014 on 9/23/2017
Love it
Great app!
wiwitah on 9/23/2017
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.
Agreed with Hangouts+Allo
spirited wings on 9/23/2017
Google has many great apps. Integration is a must.. Google's intelligence level means these requests shouldn't be any problem to add really soon to get more users and high ratings. I'll be waiting for this integration to hopefully happen soon but until then it's Google Hangouts for me as well. Just do it!
Cannot multi platform
spoildangelgrl on 9/23/2017
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
Kdhrisvdbrudbeks on 9/23/2017
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
fellowdev123 on 9/21/2017
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
Yv!!!!! on 9/20/2017
We love this app. I suggest Business to get this app.
High Vibe Cafe is loving the High Vibes of Allo
HighVibeCafeNebradk on 9/20/2017
We switched our group chats to allo and love it!!it actually provides a platform for efficiency and for FUN!!!
great app

changed my life
Feature request
SpaphyTwitch on 9/16/2017
Make it so you can add your own emojis to this app for each chat room. I guarantee you this app will sky rocket if this feature is added. Also better advertisement and windows + mac clients would be cool. Nothing that diversifies this app currently.
pevensen on 9/16/2017
No iPad version. What?!? Why not? The chat bots are annoying. Why would I want one of contacts to be able have Google send me daily messages at a certain time? That's just as nuisance. And if I turn alerts off, I'd miss messages from real people. How many chat apps does Google need?
App lovet
Diva's Den Fashion on 9/13/2017
Love the app. Easy to use and communicate with my customers.
Fun app
VA2260 on 9/11/2017
Fun app to text with gifs and pictures
A full replacement for your default messages app.
BeachsideSix58 on 9/8/2017
Thanks to Google Allo, you will never need to use sms again since Allo doesn't need sms to send texts to Android devices whereas iMessage only works on and between Apple devices.
Great, but a couple suggestions
Zac, Catan Fanatic on 9/7/2017
Everything about this app is fantastic, but just a couple tweaks could place it firmly at the top with a glowing 5-star rating. 1. Allow users to tweak the «hinted responses» before sending/making it permanent. 2. Do the same with @lucky gifs. They're often hilarious, but too high-risk when messaging your mom/boss/girlfriend. Er, rather mom, boss, or girlfriend. (They're not the same person. 🌚) > Maybe fix via "undo" macro or fill in the box & let people confirm via send button, or "re-roll" by shaking their phone or throwing it on the ground. Ba-dum, perfect.
Gif fails
mmary0202 on 9/7/2017
Sending your own gif, it fails and says there's not enough memory to complete the task.
Shared Media Missing
bissamissa on 9/6/2017
Would have given this a higher rating if it had the "Shared Media" feature that the Android version has. It's sad that the Allo team continues to leave this feature out of app updates.
This app is awesome
titanosaur on 9/6/2017
Overall I find it more functional than iMessage
It's good
Poweruser314 on 9/6/2017
The stickers are hilarious
update won't work at all.
HoodieNinja33 on 9/4/2017
as soon as i open the app it says there's an error and i can't do anything.
Muy buena herramienta
MarcoRSD on 8/31/2017
Podría ser mejor si las personas pudieran saber que al descargar la aplicación podrían al momento que estuviesen en un negocio pudieran comunicarse con alertas para entablar una conversación más directa
I love the app
Youplaymenot on 8/30/2017
Like the title says I love the app but the ability to not be able to rotate and type is infuriating.
Im in love with this app
Sergio Fratto on 8/30/2017
I wish it didn't have to use 'duo' app seriously that just doesn't work for me. It would be better if you could 📞 inside the app. I hope you guys change that. BUT AMAZING WORK WITH THIS
Doesn't open
ForHisGlory987654321 on 8/29/2017
App doesn't open after latest update.
Great business tool
Massage Studio Buffalo on 8/29/2017
We use Allo for our business Google page, clients directly message us from our Google listing super fast and easy for clients to request information and book a appointment with us at The Massage Studio-Buffalo!!
Awesome texting app from Googlee
Ranses23 on 8/28/2017
Congratulations for the google team. Such awesome texting app. Love it. Hope in time will be the best and very popular. Better that fb messenger and WhatsApp. Highly recommend this app.
john2049 on 8/28/2017
Awesome message app
zoomerkind on 8/27/2017
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.
BDN2 on 8/26/2017
Amazeballs app. Except the notifications no longer work after latest update!! Awful.
Most recent update is buggy
contratromba858 on 8/24/2017
It refuses to open.

Smmchr on 8/23/2017

Chara🍫🔪 on 8/23/2017
It's awesome really wish more people would use it.

Latest update bug
davnbreak on 8/23/2017
Notifications no longer work after latest update. All settings are correct and logs sent by have yet to hear back after a few days.
Love it
CraigA1270 on 8/23/2017
Great app. Wish it could be password protected when opening it as an option.
Love this app!!
Teitele on 8/23/2017
New favorite way to communicate. My coworkers and I are obsessed, trying to migrate my friend chats now too :) The @lucky for gif feature is our favorite + gimme more option afterwards The only thing we wish would be added asap is the ability to react to each others posts like we can in iMessage. Thanks Allo!
Super cool
sol-eil on 8/22/2017
Wish more people to use it instead of pesky Facebook messenger or WhatsApp
Kydebbie on 8/22/2017
I enjoy this app
Great for Customer Service
