Google Allo was launched on Android and iOS some time ago, but it didn’t make its way to the web back then, unfortunately.
Thankfully, Google has made up for that with a new version of Google Allo for the web that was released this week. The news was revealed by Amit Fulay, Allo’s head of product, who tweeted about the news earlier today.

This comes after Google originally teased the web release a few months ago, however, at the moment, it is only a partial release and only supports Google Allo users who have an Android device.
It has been reported that iPhone support for the web will be “coming soon”.
On top of that, you can only use Google Allo for the web on Google’s own web browser.
Here’s how to get started:
- Go to Google Chrome and type in allo.google.com
- Open up the Allo app on your Android smartphone
- Go to Menu > Allow for web > Scan QR code in the app
- Scan the QR code that is shown on the webpage
