Google Working on Developing Desktop Version of Android App Allo

Posted February 25, 2017

Basically, the desktop UI of Allo looks like what you may find on a tablet with the Allo app.

The WhatsApp competitor was announced in May 2016 - launching in South Africa in September.

Therefore, interested users will perhaps have to wait for some time before they can get their hands on Allo on their desktops or laptops. 5 million downloads in the first four days after launch, however growth was quite slow after that.

With its desktop client in the making, Google wants to attract more users for Allo, but this plan might just backfire as Allo is not a popular app among users.

Nick Fox, who is the vp of communication products at Google, recently posted a screenshot of a desktop web app for Allo on Twitter. The picture in the tweet also shows the use of stickers during a chat, confirming that this feature would likely be carried over to the desktop version of Allo. Since then, Google has introduced yet another messaging app called Allo.

It seems that Spaces didn't catch on as well as Google had hoped, and hopefully - for the sake of end users - Google will start focusing on bringing improvements to their existing messaging and collaboration apps instead of launching more new ones. However, with the web version coming out, things are all set to change. I belive, just like WhatsApp Web.

However nothing's final yet. On the other hand, and considering that the Google Allo account is linked to our personal phone number, we are confident that the company will enable an option to log in with our Google account, and thus be able to use the platform from any tablet.
