After teasing the utility for a number of months, Google has officially launched the web client for Allo. With the latest version of the messaging app available for Android, you can set it up by grabbing your Android phone, tapping Allo, then going to Menu > Allo for web > Scan QR code. Afterward, visit on your desktop and scan the QR code that pops up. After that, you’re golden. Message to your heart’s content.

For now, only Android users can use this functionality with the web client of Allo. Google will allow iOS users to use it soon. You’re also required to use Chrome to access it, but considering so many people already use it, this shouldn’t be a problem. This is obviously a small step into making Allo a cross-platform messaging service as for now, users are required to have a smartphone to use it rather a tablet or other devices. Now that you can use it on your desktop, I’m sure many will give the service another shot. I just re-downloaded the app today for this purpose, and I don’t think I’m the only one doing so.
