Google Allo Website

In this morning’s biggest story so far, we’ve finally got a full-blown website for Google’s Allo messaging service. Our buddy Derek Ross shared the news first over on Google+, but the page wasn’t live yet at the time. That’s changed now, as the site is 100% up and running. D-Ross also detailed the keyboard shortcuts for Allo in a separate post.

The list of shortcuts looks to be minimal at this time, as you can see from the photo below. You can likely expect those to grow over time, as the service ages. Of course, it could always get the ax, like so many other Google Products we’ve had to say RIP to in the past.

Getting started with the Google Allo website

To get started, you can head over to this link. You’ll need to have Allo on your phone or tablet to sign in. You simply scan the QR code on the Allo site, and boom – profit! If you don’t already have Allo installed, there’s a link waiting for you at the bottom of this post.

I have to be honest – the Allo trend hasn’t quite caught on for me yet. I’m a fan of Google Hangouts, so I’d rather see everything integrated there, as opposed to a separate app altogether. But either way, it’s nice to be able to use the Google Assistant in web browser, now.

Readers, we want to know your thoughts. Are you using Allo? Does it bother you that it’s yet another service you have to keep track of? Or, are you head-over-heels with it? Whatever the case is, we’d love to hear from you in the comments.

Happy Tuesday, ya’ll!

  1. It’s the old Hangouts under a different color scheme, without the full functionality. For SMS I’m using Signal, and Gmail for everything else. Sorry, but after a year of “working on it,” this is the best that Google could do? Obviously, this isn’t a priority.

    • Hey James! Yeah, I have to agree with you here. I wouldn’t mind using Allo, if it worked with Gmail. The fact that it only works with phone number is kinda a deal-breaker for me. I have next-to-no contacts in my phone that use it, but tons who use Gmail.

      Thanks for stopping by, man! Have a great weekend.
