It’s been a while since Google launched their Allo messenger app, and there are many people who are using it on a regular basis. However, if it’s one thing that the application lacks is a desktop version.
Of course, there is always the Hangouts alternative which can be used on both smartphone and desktop, but we feel that Allo should receive the same treatment. There are some individuals who are waiting for SMS support as well, but this is not as important, however.
As time passed, Allo has been improved with a lot of new features, but it’s still kind of incomplete without the desktop variant. Nevertheless, according to the guys at 9to5 Google, the newest APK of the application indicates that it will be launched for Web as well in the near future. They detailed a lot of the specifics, so we are not going to do it here as well. What’s important is that it will utilize a scanning feature, just like WhatsApp, in order to pair the accounts with the Allo Web client.
In other words, Allo will direct you to the allo.google.com/web page and you will need to scan the QR code using your smartphone and the app itself. After you do it, your account will be paired and you will be able to chat on Allo on your desktop. Maybe Google will release a Chrome extension for this. It would certainly be simpler to become a more standalone application for any operating system, but this is just a guess. The important thing is that it’s coming.
