    Out of all the possible options to message friends from telegram , Signal, WhatsApp or iMessage. Google has allo which doesn't feel as it's complete, copy and paste an image sometimes generates links and gifs don't work from iPhone gallery. But this is what you'll expect from Google. At least get rid of link to number and put it to Gmail that way you can use multiple devices. As of 2/17 gifs still do not play.

  • Ignores Do Not Disturb

    This app ignores do not disturb mode, and will create sounds even when it is turned on. In general the app is fine, but not great.
  • Love It but

    I wish It would get their act right. What I mean is that I wish they would actually show who has this app and who doesn't. My phone shows that every contact on my phone has this app which is not true.
  • Can I just use Allo to send/receive GV sms?

    1. Please add sms fallback, don’t care about the difficulties. Apple is able to do it with iMessages, Google should be able to enforce it through android as well. I’d like Allo to be my default messaging app but can’t because of this issue. 2. The screen looks too colored with the search bar and other icons. 3. Give me the option to turn off creepy google assistant. 4. Give me an option to completely customize my chat theme and interface like Textra does. 5. Integrate better with apps like Spotify like iMessage does so that I can click on a Spotify icon within Allo, search for a song, and send it to the person I’m texting without ever having to leave Allo.

    I understand what google is trying to do with RCS but why not make this sms fallback compatible as well? It would make the app so much more accessible and would give people a solid reason to use the app. That reason being. It works to message anyone wether they have the app or NOT. The application itself isn’t half bad it’s smooth the features are thought out well and google assistant is always a pleasure... The insane way they were able to cut out a majority of people I message by not using the fallback makes this very tough to get other people to use since it is locked together. With RCS which again I’m excited for RCS but it’s so little and far between to be something extremely useful. 😕

    I love the messaging app, it’s compatible with android and iOS which family members love cause we all have different devices. Love its usefulness but I wish and truly wish it would support sms messaging so I don’t have to leave between the two services. Even Facebook messenger works with sms and that’s reason I didn’t give it 5 Stars. Also, give more themes or make themes customizable
  • Fun to use. Useful as Walkie Talkie

    Great app for my wife and I to stay in contact throughout the day. App has only two annoying quirks that we routinely encounter. 1. When the voice conversation is set to “auto play” any message received by the other person, when I’m in the middle of recording my own outgoing message, will cancel my outgoing message with no warning when the other person’s message starts to play. This is extremely annoying when a 30 second outgoing message gets interrupted in second 29 and I have to start over. 2. I have a difficult time activating record mode with my fat fingers. Sometime I feel the vibration as if recording has started. I even feel the vibration when I let go of the button - just as if it recorded - but sadly it didn’t. Would really appreciate having a larger record button with tactile feedback that you can depend on. Thanks for the great app.
