Allo is ready for you to download in Australia! Just days after launching the app is now available to download on Google Play for those in Australia.
The app began rolling out on Wednesday afternoon with Allo co-lead developer Justin Uberti advising the rollout would begin in India before moving to other regions. The main concern was server capacity, but the rollout has apparently gone well with Australia now in line.
The app has been met with mixed reactions, with a number of people concerned over the perceived lack of features in the app such as multi-device support, SMS integration, desktop client and even message backup. Mr Uberti has been talking on Twitter about this perceived lack of features advising that ‘All-in-one apps are not the future’.
The current state of play for Allo is that it’s a version 1.0 release and more features are coming. Mr Uberti advised those looking for more features:
And a special 👍 to those who asked for a feature, but understood that Allo v1 is just that: a 1.0 product that will improve every few weeks.

We’ve used Allo here for a while now, and you can read my thoughts on the service here.
If you haven’t yet side-loaded the app, Allo then you can head to Google Play to download the app now.
