TECH | Google Allo 9.0 suggests its desktop chat client will work just like WhatsApp


Several weeks ago, Nick Fox, Google’s VP of Communications Products, teased us via Twitter with an early look at Google Allo for desktop.

We now have our first idea of how that might work… Like WhatsApp, the current version of the app lays the groundwork for you to be able to pair your device to the web client by scanning a QR Code.

We found a lot of interesting strings referencing a ‘Chat backup’ feature that takes advantage of Google Drive, more references to a future ‘Quick Selfie’ feature, incognito groups and more.
