Allo for web arrives, but only available for Chrome browser for now

If you have never used WhatsApp web or the WhatsApp desktop app for Mac and Windows, then that's pretty much how it works. Users will have to open the allo.google.com/web page on their PC.

Once you scan the code, Allo should sync up with your Android phone and get you up-to-date on conversations within the browser.

Allo, one of what feels like dozens of different messaging apps from Google, finally has a web version starting today.

Colbert asks Scaramucci: Does Trump 'order his spine on Amazon Prime?'
Instead, he said there were " many sides " to the unrest, a remark that many, including Palomarez, criticized. Mooch revealed, "When you take a job like that you know your expiration date is coming".

That's it! You can start using the Allo app on the browser. So unlike a Gmail app which can be accessed by simply typing the username and password, Allo for web is still linked to the smartphone app. But it is reasonable to say, the iOS version will be getting it soon. All of your conversations will now pop up on the screen, be showing a status that you're signed into it. The Allo for Web will allows its users to chat with friends on Chrome browser. This can be done by scanning a QR code, which is similar to what you do with WhatsApp web client as well. So, if your phone runs out of battery or if you exit the mobile app, Google Allo for web won't work. The tweet reads, "Allo for web is here!" Five days into its launch, Allo recorded 5 million Google Play Store downloads, but it took two months to double this figure. Perhaps Google saw the app's lack of support for desktops was a major factor in the market performance of the app, which is why we have a new Google Allo for Web.

Scan the QR code that's visible on Allo for web.

You can use all sorts of stuff such as emoji, stickers, and more. Google made no mention of a limit on the number of devices you're able to connect to your Allo account so it remains to be seen whether such a restriction exists. Well, for this reason, the new Google Allo for Web doesn't include the ability to launch a Duo call from within the client.
