Google Allo, the company’s chat application, is now available on the web for desktop users. The messaging app, which lets you chat with your friends and foes, retain most of the features on its web client which is available on the mobile app.
Amity Fulay, Head of Product for Allo and Duo, tweeted this news from his official handle. The tweet reads, “Allo for web is here! Try it on Chrome today. Get the latest Allo build on Android before giving it a spin.” However, it is important to note that the service is only available for Android users, while the iOS availability will be rolled out soon, the website indicates.
