Google Allo is getting a web client in “a few more weeks”

It seems as though Google Allo will finally be accessible in the form of a web client, very soon. A Google employee by the name Nick Fox showed off a screenshot of the interface back at the start of March, and now, Amit Fulay, the Head of Product for Google Allo, Google Duo and WebRTC, has reached out to a curious user over on Twitter regarding when the platform update will release.

Google Allo was an area that got left off Google’s I/O keynote address rundown in May, but it could get a nice addition soon. According to Google’s Amit Fulay, the web client of Allo is just “a few more weeks” down the line. When the update arrives, Allo users will be able to use the messaging platform on web from a browser. Users will be able to send and reply to incoming Allo messages from their desktop, an experience Google Hangouts users have been busy enjoying all along.

Google Allo could use a boost, and the future update could convince Hangouts users or users of other instant messaging clients to make the switch over to the feature-rich Allo service with Google Assistant capabilities. What do you think? Will the Allo web client appeal to you? Drop a comment down below and let us know.
