Sucks that you can't just log in with handle and password.
anyways, the bew Skyoe Beta is where it's at. They got everything on it except for SMS or MMS suport. You can chat with some one and then send them a snapchat style video just by swiping to the left. It's default send button is replaced by a mic for walkie talkie style messaging and if yoy were to type, a send button wuld appear of course. And best of all, you can access web.skype.com Skype also lets you sebd locations and many ither things Telegram, Whatsapp, etc, vut skype is far beyond its time with snap chat stiries style profiles too. Its in one and gesture friendly, swiping down closes the chat. I dont know manybpeople who use it, but with the 7 friends I have on skype, I'm fine with it on my Android homescreen. I recommend it!

The problem is, it doesn't nearly compete with other platforms such as Telegram, and until they improve it and install it by default no one is going to switch.
Telegram is way ahead in terms of multi-platform support.
AnonD-402029, 16 Aug 2017whatsapp style? need phone to be online? no..im sticking to telegram..this! they have great gtalk (and hangouts to some extent) and they went back to the dark ages of IM where you can have only one session (so, like whatsapp) and if you lose your phone it's all gone....
sticking to telegram!
(even Facebook messanger is better in that aspect, sic!)
wdzn, 15 Aug 2017I'm using it on daily basis... With who? Do you just message the assistant, or do you actually have enough friends using it to justify it over Telegram and WhatsApp?
It also forces you to use Chrome...
Omg if this had sms support it would rip!!!!!!!!!

They should really do it in such a way to force people to use it. Allo and Duo are really good but they need to market and force users to use it.
I wish they have a standalone client though. I have like 30 tabs on my chromes lol
whatsapp style? need phone to be online? no..im sticking to telegram..
Allo is just so useless....
It makes no sense at all, it lacks basic features and it seems forgotten by everyone, including Google.
Apple has iMessage. Google has nothing.
r, 15 Aug 2017People still using allo? No one even tried. I wanted Google to make a standard messaging platform for Android with all the bells and whistles (like iMessage) but Allo is just lackluster.
People still using allo?
works like a charm! Thx google
