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.

Allo aight
Madd Gurl on 8/18/2017
I would have liked to replace the preinstalled SMS app with Allo but I can't... And when people who are not on Allo receive this message they don't know what it is and don't open it... Then I have to resend my msg in the stock app for sms... Not a big fan for that. Anyways, it works with the people I use it with...
Love it
Matt Ralston on 8/16/2017
I love the application I just wish the they had the desktop version for iOS as well.
Gif keyboard no longer works
Carlyn4676 on 8/16/2017
My gif keyboard worked great on Allo until the last update, now it just sends as a stationary picture. Fix, please!
Great app but needs to be more simple
Herunsheng on 8/16/2017
Allo is a great app for chatting and using the smart assistant service from Google. While, the app keeps crushing because of the shortage of my phone's memory. It's suggested that Allo can be more simple and small that would works fine on different kinds of phones.
It's a good app but no multi device support
Shantahan on 8/15/2017
I like Allo actually. Slick interface and stickers and stuff are things I appreciate. But it's never going to be my go to app for messaging because it does not have multi device support. I prefer hangouts because of multi device, even though it has an inferior UI.
Love it
ertysech on 8/15/2017
I wish you could edit the avatar after a group chat has been created
Needs desktop app
Rwscold on 8/14/2017
Best ever just needs an app for desktop!!!
Yutznut on 8/12/2017
I haven't laughed that hard over a freaking conversation since we talked around fires at field keggers.
Excellent messaging app !
yatinkr on 8/12/2017
Great job by google ! This app has quickly become my go-to messaging app. The Google assistant is a extremely helpful feature that sets this app apart from the other ones in the market.
@3brhman on 8/12/2017
It's a great app but I think if it has a favorite messages so u can find them easily it would be good. And the reply button PLEASE.
Ladyzzzarkt on 8/12/2017
Wish we could have different ring tones for each contact
This app is super dope
Airgasm76 on 8/11/2017

It's the best
d^3p on 8/11/2017

Akhtarul Islam Ranis on 8/10/2017
Very helpful and friendly service

Chayyse on 8/9/2017
This app is tasty as a chicken tendie.
lindaax324 on 8/8/2017
I can't seem to send videos in the app. Other than that, it's pretty good.
Smooth app
SFbabe11 on 8/7/2017
Love the stickers and smart replies!
Fun and useful
ENDR mr ENDR on 8/4/2017
This is a super fun app. Very customizable, easy to use. Love the UI. The next thing is just convincing all of my friends to download!
Love its simplicity
Redolenze on 7/31/2017
Google should natively implement it in Android, just like facetime
God Roses on 7/30/2017
Awesome app. Super.
Fun App!
organic69 on 7/29/2017
Love this app. A friend had us old girlfriends all download it and we are having fun with it. Only wish that we could "like" each other's comments as they come in. Unfortunately you can't. You can only add to the one string of messages and your comments aren't in order as others respond or post. Also, there are some great GIFs but you can't enlarge them to see them before posting and you can't see the words on each one. Aside from these 2 things it's serving its basic purpose.
Continuous Freezing
Das20 on 7/28/2017
I like this app. It is my favorite messaging app for communicating with my cousins and siblings, but the app is always freezing. It would be usable for maybe 10 seconds and then freeze. I tried redownloading the app and it still freezes. My cousins have androids and the app works perfectly fine but the app seems to always freeze on my iPhone 5s. Please help!
Fantastic! Very good for communication between Android and Apple phones
mclaren700 on 7/27/2017
It works very well!
Nice app
Ancosmi on 7/26/2017
Nice app
Its great
T-Shire on 7/25/2017
We use Allo to keep in touch with our large spread out family. We cam instantly and easily share moments of our lives with loved ones. It has been a prefect tool to keep in touch on a daily basis!!! Love it.
Pretty cool but...
Beachwood 45789 on 7/25/2017
This is a fairly good communication app but here is my current feature wish list. Custom notification sound, embedded voice/video capability. The coolest thing about Allo that I've found is the custom selfie sticker creation set. It's quite fun, I must say.
Ipad support
Capt. Rez1 on 7/24/2017
Why not optimized for iPad??
Unable to sign up using google voice number
plchan on 7/23/2017
Subject says it all.
Google has nailed it again
RandomDude87 on 7/22/2017
This app is almost perfect and I see no problems with it, aside from some Android Favoritism. Besides that I see this app as a perfect alternative to iMessage and I use it more now, especially to communicate with my friends who have Android phones.
Good app but missing basic features
Mgltaker on 7/22/2017
Please include @reply to people. And definitely need replying to specific messages.
I love it!
Sinusaca on 7/21/2017
Very good one! So ez to use it.
Back to basics? Almost
Caseus on 7/21/2017
All the world needs right now is a chat app with no frills. Allo would almost be that, if only you could turn off the predictive responses somehow. Much less bloat than apps like messenger.
Sofarinmydreams on 7/18/2017
Love it me and my best friends have so much fun with all the features including the fun stickers.
P good
POEMes on 7/15/2017
It works!
AggieMeMa on 7/15/2017
Allo works when nothing else does! We live in the country and Allo keeps us in contact with our family when text or messenger can't send!! Love it! Use it everyday:/)
Czimmmmmmm on 7/15/2017
Allo keeps on crashing when I try to open it.
Simple 👌🏼
Blubberinggreatness58 on 7/13/2017
Love this app best messaging app so far.. I enjoy that you can chat SMS and not just Allo members!
Stopped working
Val*Hernandez on 7/13/2017
It was such a fun app! But today it was acting glitchy and finally crashed. I deleted and downloaded again and it froze on the profile pic setup. I used it just fine for about two months and it just stopped working. This makes me sad because I really enjoyed all the google features. So back to iMessage I go. 😭
Search Option is missing
Montusar on 7/13/2017
Allo is a great message app fro. Google as usual. Special I love its "@lucky" feature. However, it has its limitations. Allo does not allow users to search the previous thread of conversation like othe meassging apps like whatsapp. Otherwise there integration with google duo app is pretty amazing.
Best app
Ruready812 on 7/13/2017
Alternative to whatsapp
KJKeyserSoze on 7/13/2017
Desktop client and also group incognito mode and then it will take over other apps. Haven't people learnt from Snapchat? We want choice of disappearing messages
Very good App
Jayakrishnan Sudeesh on 7/12/2017
I really enjoy chatting with this app. Real fun
It's like 4chan for chat
Ryan Paymaster on 7/12/2017
Have a ball. GIF mode is uncensored. It's amazing.
Awesome App
